"Personally I believe that rock and roll may be on the way out, just like adolescence as a relatively innocent transitional period is on the way out.  What we will have instead is a small island of new free music surrounded by some good reworkings of past idioms and a vast Sargasso sea of absolute garbage."  - Lester Bangs

"Every mercenary...three-chord revolutionaries.....choose your side and choose it well!!!"  - The Dictators
