"Kool Thing" was the first major label single from Sonic Youth's 1990 album Goo. Although he is never mentioned by name, the song's lyrics contain several references to LL Cool J. Kim Gordon's lyrics make reference to several of the rapper's works, including the single "Radio" and the album Walking With a Panther. She also repeats the line "I don't think so", which appears in LL Cool J's "Going Back to Cali". Chuck D also contributes some vocals in the song. The song is still widely believed to be Sonic Youth's biggest hit, due to great reception of critics and record sales.

Kool Thing - Sonic Youth

[Kim]
Kool Thing sittin' with a kitty
Now you know you're sure lookin' pretty
Like a lover not a dancer
Superboy take a little chance here
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

Kool Thing let me play it with your radio
Move me, turn me on, baby-o
I'll be your slave
Give you a shave
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

[Chuck D]
Yeah, tell'em about it,
Hit'em where it hurts
Hey, Kool Thing, come here, sit down beside me
There's something I gotta ask you.
I just wanna know, what are you gonna do for me?
I mean, are you gonna liberate us girls
From male white corporate oppression?
Tell it like it is!
Huh?
Yeah!
Don't be shy
Word up!
Fear of a female planet?
Fear of a female planet?
Fear, baby!
I just want to know that we can still be friends
Come on, come on, come on, come on let everybody know
Kool thing, kool thing

When you're a star, I know that you'll fix everything
Kool Thing sittin' by the kitty
Now you know you're sure lookin' pretty
Rock the beat just a little faster
Now I know you are a master
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

Kool thing walkin' like a panther
Come on and give me an answer
Kool thing walkin' like a panther
What'd he say?
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so
