From an interview in this month's Metal Edge magazine with power-metal superstars Dragonforce.

"Seemingly out of nowhere, surprisingly dirty riffs will crop up, disrupting the streams of whammy-bar whiffery that are something of a DF signature. 'When it's dirty or more rock 'n' roll, that's me,' [bass player Frédéric] Leclerq admits. He laughs when I ask him how that's possible, given that he hails from France, where rock music goes to die.

'It's not my fault!' he protests. 'We have that thing where at least 50 percent on the radio has to be French, so...I don't know. There's always been black metal bands, going in fucking cemeteries and robbing corpses and stuff. There's some good bands like Gojira, there's actually a lot of good bands from France, but it doesn't matter. No one really cares, they'll say, "Oh, it's from France. Nah." And they'll sign a crappy German band, or something.'"

(I tried translating this to French, but WHY WOULD I DO THAT)
