"Rock 'n' roll smells phony and false.  It is sung, played, and written for 
the most part by cretinous goons, and by means of its almost imbecilic 
reiteration, and sly, lewd, in plain fact, dirty lyrics, it manages to be 
the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth.  
It's the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has 
been my misfortune to hear."

-- Frank Sinatra

This quote shows up in the liner notes to the new CD by Brazilian pop singer 
Caetano Veloso.
