That is a great quote Mr Mephisto, and sadly true.
"The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides"
-Carl Sagan

Yes, the Romantic era was filled with such sick music

Forgive me for not being able to separate the quote from its intended subject.

I'm not really sure I understand what you mean.

Every time had its trends in music. For example, from its early birth in the Southern US during the early parts of this century, all the way upto the 1940's Jazz was considered degenerate. Ditto Rock 'n' Roll. Ditto Heavy Metal. Ditto Disco. Ditto Dance music. Ditto Rap.

The actual quote is a translation of "Man macht heute nur Geld mit kranker Musik" which comes from Section 5 of Der Fall Wagner (or The Case for Wagner). It is an attack upon the German people's love of Wagnerian music. The quote is specifically aimed at Wagner. In Nietzsche's opinion, the music though popular was "sick".

He goes on

The Germans have constructed a Wagner for themselves whom they can revere
So, obviously, the fact that you do not subscribe to this point of view or allow yourself the opinion that such a quote was contemporaneously relevant, does not mean that it cannot be quoted today; even if it is out of context.

It's funny, considering it's a theme that has been oft repeated since music has become much more popular and influential.
