"Just because we yell 'shit,' 'piss,' 'cunt,' 'motherfucker' and 'asshole' doesn't mean we don't love you. It's just our way."

"So we may be a little bit of a weird motley crew, but being the owner of mutt and a motley dog -- that's the kind of thing that I like in my life. I'm not looking for pure breed. I'm looking for a big fucked-up mess like us."

12. A$AP Rocky, Ogden Theatre, 10/15/12
