"what matters most is how well you walk through the fire"
— Charles Bukowski


"They say that death kills you, But death doesn't kill you. Boredom and indifference kill you."
— Iggy Pop


“I like music that's more offensive. I like it to sound like nails on a blackboard, get me wild.”
― Iggy Pop

"Pickles"- Talking about music is like painting about farting.


Symbol Six today, Death on the Radio tonight... We're rockin' so hard it's stupid!


"I think that all the years of exposure to amps and electricity has altered my body chemistry."
— Iggy Pop


“The dilemma of the eighth-grade dance is that boys and girls use music in different ways. Girls enjoy music they can dance to, music with strong vocals and catchy melodies. Boys, on the other hand, enjoy music they can improve by making up filthy new lyrics.”
― Rob Sheffield, Love is a Mix Tape


“If you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. You begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience.”
― John Cage


" I'm looking for backing for an unauthorized auto-biography that I am writing. Hopefully, this will sell in such huge numbers that I will be able to sue myself for an extraordinary amount of money and finance the film version in which I play everybody"
— David Bowie


"Take your protein pills and put your helmet on... Check ignition and may God's love be with you..."
— David Bowie (NOT A BOOK)


“Do you know people who insist they like 'all kinds of music'? That actually means they like no kinds of music.”
― Chuck Klosterman, Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto


“Perfume was first created to mask the stench of foul and offensive odors...
Spices and bold flavorings were created to mask the taste of putrid and rotting meat...
What then was music created for?
Was it to drown out the voices of others, or the voices within ourselves?
I think I know.”
― Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls


“For those of you in the cheap seats I'd like ya to clap your hands to this one; the rest of you can just rattle your jewelry!”
― John Lennon


“this song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called 'we hate you, please die.”
― Bryan Lee O'Malley, Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life


“If you're going to kick authority in the teeth, you might as well use two feet.”
― Keith Richards, Keith Richards: In His Own Words


“Pop music often tells you everything is OK, while rock music tells you that it's not OK, but you can change it.”
― Bono, On the Move


“Play it f**kin' loud!”
― Bob Dylan


“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
― Albert Einstein
