Tidal wave of shit

There is exactly one good line in Steven Van Zandt's little tantrum to a "Radio & Records Convention":

If to a punky consciousness the Ramones are sugar and the Ronettes are broccoli you play the Ramones into the Ronettes and, because Joey learned to sing from Ronnie and you can hear it, the Ramones become hollandaise and it works.

The rest is bullshit that is, well, I'll let Alfred Soto say it for me: "reactionary, tone-deaf, and stupid".
