Bee Thousand-1-
Bee Thousand is the seventh album by lo-fi group Guided by Voices, released on June 21, 1994. This album was recorded entirely on consumer-quality electronics, contributing to its low-quality sound. The album was intended to be the group's last album, but after the attention the group got from it, they were able to sign to Matador records and keep recording. The album was critically acclaimed for its songwriting and lyricism, and became one of the most influential indie rock albums of the decade. Pitchfork named it the 10th greatest album of the 1990s. The name "Bee Thousand" comes from a mispelling of Beethoven as "Beethouen," combined with a previous working title, "Zoo Thousand."

The album was re-released in 2004 as Bee Thousand: The Director's Cut. However, great criticism came to the altered track list, which featured a ton of new songs that were not on the original album, and did not feature the original, more concise track list at all, instead presenting the original songs out of order.
