Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for March 18, 1992
Calvin: Mom, can I have some money to buy a Satan-worshipping, suicide-advocating heavy metal album? Mom: Calvin, the fact that these bands haven't killed themselves in ritual self-sacrifice shows that they're just in it for the money like everyone else. It's all for effect. If you want to shock and provoke, be sincere about it. Calvin: Mainstream commercial nihilism can't be trusted?! Mom: 'Fraid not, kiddo. Calvin: Childhood is so disillusioning.
