From Supply and Demand, pg. 279:
I was always into music as a kid, but the first group that got me into a subculture of music was the Sex Pistols. From then on, all I cared about was punk rock. At first I just dug the music, but as I learned more about them I realized that they created an incredible cultural upheaval, and there were talented people involved not only in the music but on the art, fashion, and business ends. I used that as a template for what I tried to do: make solid art, but also manipulate the media and cover every variable in pop culture; work all the angles.
