It requres a very artificial and complicated frame of mind to 'hear' a 'pure noise' (Martin Heidegger, 1927).

The more indulgent and sonically perverse we got, the more commercial we sounded.

Finally, there are no more enemies, and there are no more heroes... just sound (Wayne Coyne, 1997).
We made it, so it's ours to destroy (Jeff Tweedy, 2002).
