We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves.
Music critics get their records for free so their opinions usually don't matter.
Society has traditionally always tried to find scapegoats for its problems. Well, here I am.
Times have not become more violent. They have just become more televised.
I'm not against God, I'm against the misuse of God.
Music and image has continued to get more extreme as the world gets more extreme. We are the consequence of the modern decaying civilization.
There are people accusing me that I'm sick, that I'm a danger to morals, western civilization and basically everything under the sun. And they've got these wild stories about me, completely off the wall, completely untrue. They thought them up and it makes you wonder what goes on in their brain, but of course, they don't consider themselves sick. They think they're normal because they don't dress like I do.
I view my job as being someone who is supposed to piss people off. I don't want to be just one-of-the-guys. I don't want to be just a smiling face you see on television presenting some vapid kind of easily- digestible garbage. This is rock and roll. I want to be a rock and roll star! Rock and roll is about shaking things up, making people act and react. That's what I do.
I'm tired of people calling me a devil worshipper. It's kind of pointless you know. Because if the Devil did exist, he'd be worshipping me, because I'm more successful than he is.
