Why Club and DJ Culture Sucks in '12: The Lost Promise of the Late 80s and Early 90s

a piece by dj King Pigeon at Eurotrash or Eurotrash?

problem #5 he identifies as 

"Too much alcohol, not enough drugs"
... The soundtrack of the warehouse rave was acid house and hardcore techno, but inside the heads of many ravers an aural soundtrack scored by drugs—particularly ecstasy, and (despite the name of the movement, to a lesser extent) acid—played an accompanying melody....
Today's club drug of choice is Vodka Red Bull. As comedian Bill Hicks famously pointed out, "You're in a ballgame or a concert and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious. Are they drunk or smoking pot?" Swap "on ecstasy" or "on acid" for "smoking pot" and the point remains the same."
