Lust For Lameness Alice Cooper, now as relevent as Boy Bands, maybe less...
"To me, that's treason. I call it treason against rock-and-roll, because rock is the antithesis of politics. Rock should never be in bed with politics," the 56-year-old told the Canadian Press news service as he embarked last week on a 15-city Canadian tour. - Alice Cooper. What a turd. Maybe retarded no-talent hacks like Alice don't know anything about politics (and maybe if he did he wouldn't vote for Bush) but there are a number of artists' opinions that I repsect.
Billy Bragg - "My job is to reflect the world I see around me. There's no point in writing purely ideological songs in a time of no ideology..."
Fugazi - "If people lose their incentive to make music because they're not making money, they're not musicians. They're business people."
Bad Religeon - "Lyxzen confesses it was Bad Religion that helped spark his fascination with global politics and his subsequent desire to try to make a difference through his music."
David Byrne - "Four years ago, people would say, 'We're not an empire, we would never do that, we're much more benign than that.' Now, it's basically accepted."

And don't get me started on MC5.
