U.S rocker Thurston Moore has defended his decision to sell a Sonic Youth compilation in the Starbucks coffee chain. Fans of the band criticised the move, branding them "sell outs". Moore insists he was surprised by the negative reaction. He says, "I never thought of it as being more radical than recording for Universal Music. "They're both corporations that have ties to things that people find sort of problematic. The compilation came out of the idea that I wanted (newest album) Rather Ripped to be in Starbucks stores because that's where people were seeing CDs. They aren't going into record stores anymore.
