TV Shit is an EP by American alternative rock band Sonic Youth and Japanese vocalist Yamatsuka Eye. It was released in 1994 by Thurston Moore's record label Ecstatic Peace.


TV Shit is a series of covers, all of the same track: Washington, D.C. hardcore punk band Youth Brigade's song "No Song II". The original version was a one-second song consisting of the spoken word "no".

The album cover's spine and back cover (with the exception of the photo) were from the Karlheinz Stockhausen album Gesang der Jünglinge, which is often credited as being the first electronic album.
