"Master-Dik" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
One two, one two, one two titty
I know every nook and cranny in New York City
We're Ciccone and that's enough
I'm the royal tuff titty and you gotta taste my love
Taste my love


Come on everybody and rock with me
I am the one on the Christmas tree
Now working at the word like a moving storm
Now walking up the stairs and cookin' up the bored
Trippin' everywhere I don't fucking care
Put on some dark eyes and waving goodbye


Ci ci Ciccone
Ci ci ci Ciccone
Ci ci ci ci ci

Oh I'm just so down

I know
I know
Gene Simmons is another mother

I know
I know
Ci Ciccone
Ci Ciconne
We're Ciccone
We're Ciccone
We're Ciccone
We're Ciccone

I know


I'm talking about

I don't know


Gotta balance that's jealous that summer on crack made me go
Like a house of the ghetto
Saying all is one and one is two to many


London fuck you're pissing me of
Hollywood Amerika-ka-ka
Won't you please let me rock you
I'm just a boy with not much to do
Everybody says there's a cup from above
You gotta scream, taste my love
Taste my love

Ci ci ci cici ci ci ci Ciconne
Ci ci ci ci ci Ciccone
Ci ci ci ci Ciccone
Yeah we're Ciccone


We're ciccone
Ci Ciccone
Ci Ciccone
Ci Ciccone

    General CommentPrior to be added as a bonus track to Sister, this song was from this EP: allmusic.com/cg/…

    Which was a fore-runner to this album: allmusic.com/cg/…

    Which came out between Sister and Daydream Nation. I'm sure there's a site that explains this better, but allmusic does an alright job. Read the Whitey Album review and the Ciccone Youth bio and think you'll kind of get it.

    General CommentI love this song cus it's so varied and funny. yeh he's probably high.

    Does anyone else think it's J Mascis from DInosaur Jr. playing the guitar solo? Cus J. Mascis played on Two cool Chicks listening to Mue(?) on the Whitey Album, and if the other version of Master Dik is on the Whitey Alnum then IT ALL ADDS UP!

    General CommentI think it's a jab of sorts at the people hosting the radio program they recorded it on, who wanted them to play even though they were six hours late getting there and had an audience of five...

    General CommentThe music in the background is apparently made from clips of KISS playing (as well as the repetition of "I know!"), the song is I think a jab at such 'stadium-rock' acts. I personally think it would've fitted better on The Whitey Album than on Sister. 'Ciccone' was Madonna's maiden name, also The Whitey album was credited to Ciccone Youth, and each member used a pseudonym as well: The Royal Tuff Titty (Thurston's rapping alter-ego), ss beat control (Steve), The Sigh (Lee) and Fly Fly Away (Kim). So it makes quite a few references to Ciccone Youth also.

    General Commenti beg the differ, this was a great choice for an album-closer as Sonic Youth was most def melted on acid at the time, how would YOU have ended an album of such proportions as this one?
    and yes i do have a point, the title references the mastering company "Master-disk" that the band had to use. my thoughts are that it was a last punk stab at those people (nothing they could do hahaha)
