    What They Said:'s Year in Quotes
    During 2000, we talked with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Johnny Cash about everything from God and the Devil to smoking pot and prison. Here are some of the year's more memorable quips:

    "While we are down with Jesus, the Devil just has better drugs." -- The Bloodhound Gang's Jimmy Pop

    "I'm a believer in God and the Devil." -- Alice Cooper

    "We haven't put out a record in three years, so I've got a lot of songs. I guess I'm prolific, but I always thought I was Greek-Irish." -- Everclear's Art Alexakis on releasing two albums in 2000

    "The last few years were definitely not my favorite in my life." -- No Doubt's Gwen Stefani

    "I've just been into biker movies ever since I can remember." -- Fu Manchu's Scott Hill

    "If the first album I ever did, when I was twenty-one, was as successful as [the last] one, I think I would have been on crack by now. I'd be driving around in a big limousine, pissed off at all my friends, doing crack and wondering what happened to my career." -- Fatboy Slim

    "I like to hear crazy rumors. Didn't I die in a car accident? My mom called me about that one -- she was really concerned. And then there was the time I raped someone. My mom also called me about that: 'I'm so disappointed in you!' But she doesn't call me about them anymore. I banned her from the Internet." -- Weezer's Rivers Cuomo

    "The fact of the matter is, I'm fucking brilliant. Not 'was' brilliant. 'Am' brilliant." -- The Who's Pete Townshend

    "I think he is a genius. Well, let's put it this way: he was a genius. I don't know whether he is now." -- The Who's Roger Daltrey on Pete Townshend

    "I do all my interviews in the toilet." -- Slash

    "We wanted to capture our first headlining tour on tape . . . [But] I don't think following us on the road would be that interesting, because we pretty much do the same thing every day. So that'd be a pretty short movie." -- Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines

    "I've always wanted to smash a guitar over someone's head. You just can't do that with a piano." -- Elton John

    "Hopefully people will realize now that I'm into a lot of different styles of music and not just techno and nosebleed music." -- Darren Emerson on leaving Underworld

    "I'm searching for all forms of music out there. But I don't see no more Billie Holidays, no more Marvin Gayes, no more Smokey Robinsons. I don't even see no more Nirvanas." -- Wyclef Jean

    "People think that we're just these good-looking guys with these really big dicks that play really hot fucking rock & roll. But we're sensitive, and we have feelings too." -- Green Day's Tre Cool

    "I never wanted to be the posterboy for witchcraft. You don't ask Cher if she's a practicing Christian, so get off it after a while." -- Godsmack's Sully Erna on Wicca

    "No, I'm not on it at all. I'm dyslexic. I can't navigate shit there." -- Cher on the Internet

    "We're taking a little snooze. A siesta. I've been doing Primus since 1984, so I'm about due for a siesta." -- Les Claypool on the status of Primus

    "If they called me up, I would puke." -- Sammy Hagar on returning to Van Halen

    "It's totally R.E.M.'s town. We used to see Michael Stipe, like, on a daily basis.

So as soon as we could afford it, we got the hell out of there." -- Nashville Pussy's Ruyter Suys on Athens, Georgia

    "I didn't go to the clubs, so my whole knowledge of this music is through the radio, and there is no real sort of reason to take an Ecstasy in front of the radio and go mental." -- Paul Van Dyk on enjoying electronica without Ecstasy

    "There's so many on the television that I don't know who the fuck I'm watching." -- Ozzy Osbourne on boy bands

    "We're gonna take a little time off, get reacquainted with our families and stuff and start writing the most dangerous album on the planet." -- Slipknot's No. 6

    "I've never been accused of a felony. I never spent time behind bars except for a few overnight jail times back in the Sixties. [But] I think there's a little bit of a criminal in all of us. Everybody's done something they don't want anybody to know about. " -- Johnny Cash

    "I had no idea what he was planning. I didn't expect an evening of Tim vs. the NYPD." -- Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello on bassist Tim Commerford's MTV VMA stunt

    "Addiction is a symptom of not growing up. I know people think it's a disease . . . If you have a brain tumor, if you have cancer, that's a disease. To say that an addiction is a disease is not fair to the real diseases of the world." -- Poison's C.C. DeVille

    "I was raised in a very abstinent environment, so as an adult, I never really had the desire or a leaning in the direction of any sort of substance abuse.

    "At one of the venues down south I walked by a sign that said, 'No Smoking, $300 fine.' . . . So I told the niggas in charge that if I couldn't smoke, I wasn't steppin' on stage. They didn't even try to contest that, 'cause that shit could've started a riot. They were immediately like, 'Smoke all you want, my nigga. It's all good.' In all reality, they should've known better than to try that shit. Nigga, this is Up in Smoke -- not no mothafuckin' after-school special." -- Snoop Dogg

    "Everybody thought I was dead at that point. That revived my career so strong, you wouldn't believe it. Willie [Nelson] called me right away and said, 'Well, you just got $5 million worth of publicity.'" -- Ray Price on his 1999 marijuana possession arrest

    "I'm the best when I'm do a song for the first time. And then I gotta record it because my memory ain't getting any younger. Smoking so much fucking marijuana over the years'll fuck your memory up." -- Robert Bradley

    "Panic. Followed my more panic." -- Tom Waits on theater

    "That's us -- the most hated band in the world. And I'll proclaim that over any of these lame-ass bands out there. We own that title. We make USA Today's worst album every year. They don't really know much about music, but it's still great. It's great to be named the best at something . . . even if it's sucking." -- Insane Clown Posse's Violent J

    "I love New York, [but] I detest [Mayor] Giuliani." -- Lou Reed

    "It's the spirit of music. It's the spirit of rock & roll. More people coming to the party. Not less." -- The Offspring's Dexter Holland on Napster

    "If someone takes an unfinished demo from the studio and puts it up on the Internet, I'll kill them." -- Dido

    "We wanted to make a pop/rock record. I'm not afraid to say that." -- Collective Soul's Ed Roland

    "We represent the part of society that muthafuckas is tryin' hard to forget about. We've been that part of society all our lives. A feeling like that's too hard to just get rid of. It don't just go away. As far as we're concerned, it never will." -- Billy Danze of M.O.P.

    "That story was just a joke . . . and the whole thing just got absolutely out of hand.

    "With any band, with any person, if you really wanted to pry, you can always find dirt. People don't pry hard enough and you think, 'Well, geez, maybe we should get some kind of press officer to try and stir something up, make us look more exciting.'" -- Barenaked Ladies' Steven Page

    "I like writing lyrics for women. You can do a lot. But that's all I was doing at first. I looked up and went, 'Damn, all I'm working with is girls!' It's not such a bad thing, but after a while, it's like, 'Can't you do something for the fellas?'" -- Jermaine Dupri
