QUOTES FROM THE EPISODE:
"In the post-modern music world, irony is allowed. So you can be the coolest French band in the world and suddenly say, 'D'you know what? I'm really into Phil Collins.' And everybody sort of goes, 'Hey that's kind of post-modern! We'll accept that, we'll go with that.' But if you'd said that in 1985, somebody would've punched you!" - Ben Watt on irony in music
