Abridged to Top 25 Artists

1. How did you get into 20?
Eric Clapton: My Dad actually. I think I was sitting with him listening to I Shot The Sheriffand that was it for me.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 12?
Alkaline Trio: Fatally Yours 10th grade in High School. This kid I knew back then gave me a CD and I was going through a straight phase of them after that. They were fun and I was emotastick. It was great.

3. What's your favorite lyric by 3?
Death Cab for Cutie: Steadier Footing "We just talk about the people we've met in the last five years and would we remember then in ten more" It's a really true lyric. Life is very transient and thus are the people in our lives. As short of a time as we live, we will go through many people and the lasting impressions they make on us will define their worth over time. The five minutes I had with one person and their memory 15 years later could be worth more then 10 years of friendship with another. It's something to think about and always remember.

4. What is your favorite album by 9?
Nickel Creek: Why Should The Fire Die? is a great album. I saw them once and kind of fell in love with them. My little brother, 11 years my junior, and I really have at it with this album. It's a great road tripper.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Two; Fever To Tell and Show Your Bones. I still remember when I first listened to them in 03. It was great, running around down town in a car with open windows, a great friend, and being loud young and open. It was great and still is.

6. What is your favorite song by 17?
Deftones: Well to begin with, undoubtedly, White Pony is my favorite album. I was real young like 12 years old and in 7th grade and it was my first listen. I still didn't know anything about music (not to say that I do now) but it was completely cerebral listening to Change and i just freaked. They remain to be one of my favorite bands and I have loved every bit of what they've sent out. I think at one time I had made it a life goal to marry Chino. Hah. To be young. It's great.

7. Is there a song by 19 that makes you sad?
Louis XIV: actually yes. It's not a sad song at all but I lost a really good friend and I had discovered this band and the song with them. I had a very intimate relationship with them and listening to Finding Out True Love Is Blind still brings a little pang of sadness.

8. What is your favorite song by 15?
Led Zeppelin: I refuse to pick a favorite song. I was sixteen when I first watched their live DVD, my parents had gotten me for my birthday, and I cried. I really and seriously cried. So no, I refuse to pick a favorite song. But, Black Dog set the background of one of my favorite memories of Dark Hair, Wind, Screaming, and pure Lust. mmm. Lovely.

9. What is your favorite song by 8?
Jack's Mannequin: Bruised. I first heard this song when I just gone through a real hard separation. It laced a note in my life when I was really unsure and understood the lyrics really well. It's a simplistic band with simplistic lyrics but sometimes that's all you need. Maybe not the best of quality but something that tastes good nonetheless.

10. How did you get into 6?
Buddy Holly: I had been first exposed to good old Bud around 8th grade from my Dad. I had known who he was but didn't really listen to him until then. I then really got into Bud my fresh year at college. Something about the simplistic brilliance of his songs really feel deep amongst all the riff raff of our modern music. I also got into Chuck, Roy, and others at the same time and haven't looked back since.

11. What is your favorite album by 14?
Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot just like everyone else. Some of my past very transient friends let me in on them at the same time as Sigur Ros and I went through a really mellow phase. They're good but there are others I would play before them.

12. What is your favorite song by 10?
The Matches: Dog Eared Page is a really fun track for what the band is. It's also a really true idea in the fact that we all keep certain people Dog Eared in the book of our lives. We keep them as a reference and go back to them once and while when in need. It's rather ironic that the song almost directly mirrored the situation between me and the kid who intro'd it to me. I love life.

13. What is your favorite album by 22?
Matisyahu: Live at Stubb's was the album that came out about a year after I heard about him. I took a real liking to him at the end of high school and when I moved to Austin I had actually missed the show that he recorded it for. I was really bummed but a poor college student, what are you going to do? But the album, once it came out, was really really great. It was nice to feel the spirit in it especially since I love Stubbs and have seen some really great (and not so great) acts there but the memories are lasting and that's what counts.

14. What is your favorite song by 7?
Orgy: Oh man. This band. WOW, I listened to Vapor Transmission nonstop when I first got it when I was like 12 and was just obsessed. Then when I was 15 I "rediscovered" it in a sense and played it NONSTOP literally NONSTOP for a month, all over again haha. I was so addicted to it there was no way I could get sick of it, i still haven't. It's really funny that I love that CD cause I can definitely see the lack of quality in it but it defines such a part of my childhood and a transition state that I was in. I can never ever hate them and think that my love for them grows over time. I don't have a favorite track but remember that I refused to listen to the first four songs and the last two cause I thought they were shit. Which they were but yeah. Love Love it.

15. Is there a song by 24 that makes you happy?
Pearl Jam: Their songs are deep and don't make you "Happy" per say but I have some really happy moments intertwined with them, especially Better Man where I'm in the car Screaming the lyrics and having fun. Young and 16, where can you go wrong?

16. How many times have you seen 25 live?
Phantom Planet: actually never. I liked one of their albums and left it on play a lot for background music but I can think of better acts to watch. Ghostland Observatory for instance is AMAZING live. yes yes.

17. What was the first song you ever heard by 23?
Postal Service: I actually don't have a 23 but two tied for 22. I first heard "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" and just loved them. I am a big fan of Death Cab and Postal. They go together in my head because I discovered them at the same time and went back and forth when i first listened to them. Though, I will not forget to mention that there is a very distinct difference between the two, no shit.

18. What is your favorite album by 11?
Chuck Berry: anything Chuck is great. but you don't go wrong with Johnny B Goode. It's classic, 'nuff said.

19. Who is a favorite member of 1?
Smashing Pumpkins: Billy. Every one loves Billy. I can't really comment past that cause I was really mad at him for a little bit with the Zwan debacle but thus is life.

20. Have you ever seen 5 live?
Ghostland Observatory: OH YES! They are AMAZING live!!! I've seen them too many times and I loved them every time i saw them... A two man band with crazy loud noise and amazing talent. btw, Arron Berhens and I, oh yes, it'll happen lol. I actually met him and got to chat him up for a bit and he's the nicest kid on earth and love love him. He even remembered me a couple shows later and went out of his way to say hey and give me a hug :) !!

21. What is a good memory involving 2?
Tom Waits: every moment with Mr. Waits is a good memory. That man is just... ethereal, the coolest cat to walk the walk. I remember sitting quietly, night dispersing itself amongst us and Burma Shave with "root beer hair" it was beautiful. Pure beautiful.

22. What is your favorite song by 16?:
At The Drive In: A great band. Mars and Sparta are great too but I love these guys. Mmm. Invalid Letter Dept. is an amazing track, it really stands out and I've had some good times with it.

23. What is the first song you ever heard by 4?
The Beatles: Wow. I don't know actually. I know what songs I listen to a lot like Blackbird but first song. There are so many commercial marketing campaigns that utilize (often incorrectly and inanely) Beatles songs so, I must have been really young but I didn't like them until recently, it's taken me time. I know people really LOVE them and that they think that the Beatles are the "greatest" band ever but I think they're over rated. Good but overrated.

24. What is your favorite album by 18?
Joseph Arthur: Redemption's Son is definitely my favorite album. It's the first I heard of him and I fell in love. I know it's Christian music and that I'm not exactly the ideal audience but he's good. There are times when all you need is mellow depth and understanding, he gets that and that's it. That's all you need.

25. Have you/would you make love to the music of 21?
Sigur Rós: Actually... I have haha. They were real mellow and made it really intimate. I mean they're a really intimate band. I didn't get to catch them when they came in town but a friend did and in a crowd of thousands she felt like the only one there. Yes, they're that good. Though, they're not the best band to have it to hah, I would give that to White Pony by the Deftones. That CD, pure sex.
