Good music quote:
Twentieth-century music is like pedophilia. No matter how persuasively and persistently its champions urge their cause, it will never be accepted by the public at large, who will continue to regard it with incomprehension, outrage and repugnance.

--Kingsley Amis, 1982

Quote found here, which discusses the problem at some length, and blames it largely on excessive taxpayer funding of the arts. We have made similar observations.
