Quotable Quotes:

"I've never raped anyone at least as far as I can remember. We were at a party a long time ago and we were all talking about how much date rape sucked. This guy was like, 'Date rape isn't so bad; if it wasn't for date rape I'd never get laid.' Everyone at the party was laughing about it, and I was cracking up so I wrote a funny song about it. - on the story behind the Sublime song "Date Rape" (IMDB)"
