Goodbye 20th Century is a double album of covers of Avant-garde recordings by Sonic Youth and collaborators.

The album received mixed reviews, but most critics praised the group's efforts at popularizing and reinterpreting the composers' works. Unlike in other SYR releases SYR4's liner notes are written in English.
