"At one stage I did set fire to a whole pile of disco records and declare that disco was dead. I think within a month there were three disco tracks in the top ten, so it wasn't a great gesture."
— Peter Garrett of Midnight Oil, Long Way to the Top: Stories of Australian Rock & Rollnote
"If you take a film like The Princess Bride, which had moderate success in theatres, but went on to eventually become a famous part of popular culture, Insurrection is the flipside of the coin, hitting theaters hard, but then falling flat on its face. While it is now critically mixed, at the time, a substantial number said that it broke the odd-numbered rule. I know it sounds unbelievable, but that's because it's a movie that doesn't stand the test of time."
Casanova Frankenstein: It must have been hard for you, Tony, the way times and styles have changed... hearing the people say that disco is dead—
Tony: Disco is NOT dead! Disco is LIFE!!
"The Twilight thing ... how long do you think it's gonna be? Like ... fifteen years, ten ... when we look back on the Twilight saga and go 'Jesus Christ, what the fuck are we doing'?' Like, I was trying to think of cultural fads that were similiar to that, like, uh, disco.
And I was like, nah, you kind of make fun of disco, but disco had some merit. No, no no no no no, I was like ... Vanilla Ice, or New Kids on the Block. You know, these things that are even today like punchlines of things that we really thought were just cool as hell ... cool as ice .. that we just look back and we shake our heads and we go 'Oh my God! We had posters of that guy! Like, we bought books! We bought tickets to that!'"
— Noah Antwiler, towards the end of his V-Log discussion of the Twilight: Eclipse movie.
I like pop, I like soul, I like rock, but I never liked disco!
