Preach, Trent. Preach.

From a Rolling Stone interview with Trent Reznor:

Six years ago, you said in Rolling Stone that rock & roll “has taken a big shit.” How do you feel now?

Well, we’ve managed to put rap rock — or, sorry, new metal — back where it belongs, as a forgotten footnote. I’m a bit more optimistic now, but in the alternative-rock world I see a lot of hype over substance. I think Radiohead are great, and Arcade Fire — I saw them live and couldn’t believe how good it was. On the other hand, there’s a band like Franz Ferdinand — all the cool people say they’re good, but it sounds like I’m getting bullshitted by somebody. That’s just my take.
