"Hey, kids, stopping the world may sound like a great
romantic idea when listening to 'I Melt With You,' but wait! What our
English friends simply have in mind is loss of gravitational equilibrium between
the earth and the sun. This is going to cause the earth to burn in a hellish firestorm.
You should know better." - The Rondelles
"I love the way 'Oh Yeah' is so in your face - it always reminded me of beered-up frat boys in bad
Hawaiian shirts. I decided against doing anything particularly abstract or 'intelligent' and instead plump for
something a bit more lowest-common-denominator to retain this flavor. Incidentally, it was recorded in my
bedroom on exactly the same make of sampler (an Emulator) that Ferris has in his bedroom. I guess I wish I could
be like Ferris, but I've a nasty feeling I'm probably more like his dorky friend." - Crazy Glue
"I remember Say Anything ... star John Cusack visiting Nirvana backstage the night I got to play on their encore. He kept
staring at my beautiful mother." - Simon Stinky Puff
"We saw Valley Girl once, but we passed out before 'Johnny, Are You Queer?' even played." - The Knock-Ups
"Fuck Blane! Love the Duck Man." - The Grown-Ups
"We can't even think of a word that rhymes" - The Donnas
"This song is chemical, emotional. Our inner urge. Primal and electrical. With four hands gripping metal utensils, creating our ultimate
dream woman. Weird Science." - The English League
"'A Million Miles Away' is one of those songs we grew up with. But you know, we always felt it never quite rocked hard
enough." - Dyslexic Crush
"Molly Ringwald turned a wonderfully metallic teen age turquoise, and a million outlaws shrieked, ran for the hills,
awaiting another bloody hollywood punk rock judgement day. John Hughes destroyed the cinema experience for an
entire generation, and we thanked him. If nostalgia is implied, then the point is moot. Stranger things have occurred
than the building of your own useless youth. I liked 'If You Were Here' when I heard it." - Ben Lee
"'You Might Think'" was a favorite of ours when we were younger, and we still remember watching the
classic 'fly' video." - F.O.N.
"We recorded 'Somebody's Baby' in the same building where they shoot pornos. We
were sitting in the hallway, and out of nowhere Ron Jeremy appears wearing a
leather bondage mask, a tiny black Speedo, black little elf booties, and this
crazy black leather cape. He just looked at us and said, 'Don't you
boys laugh.'" - Phantom Planet
