13 yo Kid Calls Sonic Youth "the worst band"

Sonic Youth took a harsh critical analysis by a 13 year old kid today as witnessed by their facebook posting of an apparent email sent to the band. In the band's 31 years of performing uncompromising avant garde indie music, not once has such a scathing indictment of the band's music been documented to mixed reactions by fans. 

Here is what the 13 year old wrote, according to Sonic Youth's Facebook post:

"I'm going to be 100% honest with you.

I'm 13. I have a little band. We are so much better than you. Honestly. You are the worst band I have ever seen in your entire life. You are worse than Rebecca Black. The bass player just hacks the bass and plays one chord. The guitar players are playing out of tune guitars and... well not even playing actually chords. I couldn't sound worse if I tried. It actually sounds like a joke to me. The drummer is okay. But honestly the vocalist is completely out of tune. Oh and The Black keys have two people and are better than you.

From: Me, and pretty much everyone else who has accidentally stumbled upon your terrible music. "

What do you think of this 13 year old kid's opinion? Is he telling it like it is? Are Sonic Youth the worst band? Should Sonic Youth and Rebecca Black do a collaboration similar to 'Kool Thing'? Did Steve Shelley remain unscathed by the young critic? Will we get answers from the Black Keys? Will Kim Gordon ever learn more than one chord? Does this kid understand art? Was he raised on "Dad Rock"? Will he get "it" someday?
