"As Peter Braunstein wrote in The Village Voice two decades later, 'The real animosity between rock and disco lay in the straight white male. In the rock world, he was the undisputed top, while in disco he was subject to a radical decentering.' Being radically decentered can make you want to blow things up."

-- Joshua Gamson, The Fabulous Sylvester
