1. How did you get into 29? Cake
I bought a pirated copy of Fashion Nugget in Bali in 2002.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Bedouin Soundclash:
When the Night Feels My Song off Sounding A Mosaic. Still one of the best.

3. What's your favourite lyric by 33?
Queens of the Stone Age
"You wanna know why you feel so hollow?/Because you are."
Everybody Knows That You Are Insane

4. How did you get into 49? Bad Religion
Through my brother.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Chumbawamba
Legally none, but in the spirit of it being Chumbawamba I've downloaded Anarchy, Un, and Readymades and Then Some, in their entireties.

6. What is your favourite song by 50? Okkervil River
Oh no, why did it have to be Okkervil? Um. It's a draw between The War Criminal Rises and Speaks and Westfall, although I'd probably come down on the side of War Criminal if there was a gun to my head.

7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Are you kidding? Anything with spoken word, especially Murray Ostril in Sleep, but my vote goes for The Dead Flag Blues, or just the whole of F#A#∞.

8. What is your favourite song by 15? Frenzel Rhomb
My Dad's a Newsreader.

9. What is your favourite song by 5? Eels
Beautiful Freak.

10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Modest Mouse
No.

Alright. Dashboard.

11. What is the worst song by 40? The Sounds
Running Out of Turbo

12. What is your favourite song by 10? Gogol Bordello
Wonderlust King, according to my charts, but to me it ties with Tribal Connection.

13. What is a good memory you have involving 30? A Silver Mt. Zion
None. Probably realising that "born Into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward." is a quote from the book of Job, which I was studying in high school for Studies of Religion and basing my major English work on. Not really "happy" though, innit?

14. What is your favourite song by 38? Streetlight Manifesto
Given that all the songs seem to blur into one another nowadays, I'd have to say If And When We Rise Again.

15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? The Offspring
Not the One, because it reminds me that The Offspring used to be a respectable band.

16. Is there a song by 25 that makes you sad? The Weakerthans
There are three: (Hospital Vespers), (Past-Due), and Virtute the Cat Explains Her Departure.

17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? Old Kent Road
It's my brother's band. I don't know. Probably Alternation, which he wrote like two years before the other ones and for which I recorded some OIs in the chorus.

18. What's your favourite lyric by 11? The Killers
"Don't give the ghost up, just clench your fist/You should have known by now you were on my list", from My List.

19. Who is a favourite member of 1? NOFX
Fat Mike. I've never seen a performer antagonise a crowd of paying fans as much as this heeb.

20. Is there a song by 14 that makes you happy? Muse
Endlessly. A quality loneliness song.

21. What is a good memory involving 27? The Hidden Cameras
Hearing Lollipopfor the first time and giggling quietly to myself.

22. What is your favourite song by 16? Green Day
I'm going with The Grouch.

23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47? System of a Down
Strictly speaking, it was Will They Die 4 You? off Chef Aid, although I was ten and had no idea who they were.

24. What is your favourite album by 18? AFI
Ouch. Sing the Sorrow. Rocked 2003.

25. What is your favourite song by 21? ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Probably Will You Smile Again?.

26. What is the first song you ever heard by 26? The Cat Empire
The Wine Song, at a party at Henry's.

27. What is your favourite album by 3? Electric Six
It's gotta be Señor Smoke.

28. What is you favourite song by 2? Against Me!
Oh god damn. It might have to be Pints of Guinness Make You Strong.

29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32? Scissor Sisters
Heheh. Probably Comfortably Numb. It would've been the only reason I listened to them in the first place.

30. What is you favourite song by 8? Reel Big Fish
Beer.

31. How many times have you seen 17 live? Sigur Rós
None, but six weeks from now I can die a happy man.

32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
Not really. They do that emotional-manipulation-through-music well though, so I guess Chamber the Cartridge is it.

33. How did you get into 12? Rancid
Damn, Chef Aid must have had a more lasting impact on my musical tastes that I thought. Brad Logan was on it. Me and my brother got into it, then the rest of their catalogue when the internet came along.

34. What is the worst song by 45? The National
Oh no. The choice. I'm gonna go with Abel, but come on. That's not fair.

35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34? Michael Nyman
Heheh.Well he's predominantly a composer of musical scores, not a songwriter, and since I really only know him by the soundtrack to The Libertine, I'm gonna had to say Signior Dildo.

36. What is the first song you ever heard by 48? DeVotchKa
Probably Danglin' Feet, unless it was a random song off like Good Weather For Airstrikes that got me into them.

37. How many times have you seen 42 live? Neutral Milk Hotel
Never, and never will.

38. What is you favourite song by 36? ®x
Happy ®xmas & A Whole Lotta Love ... the greatness.

39. What was the first song you ever heard by 28? Bloc Party
Probably Song For Clay (Disappear Here).

40. What is you favourite album by 7? The Decemberists
The Crane Wife, and quite possibly my favourite album ever, if you don't count Beethoven's 9th as an album (yes, I'm a twat).

41. Is there a song by 31 that makes you happy? Franz Ferdinand
Michael.

42. What is your favourite album by 41? The Living End
As far as I'm concerned, they should have just called it a day at the end of The Living End.

43. What is your favourite song by 24? The Mountain Goats

The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton, Up the Wolves, and of course This Year.

Devil's Dance Floor, Laura, Floatand the live version of Black Friday Rule on Whiskey On A Sunday.

47. What is your favourite album by 4? Pink Floyd
Controversially, I think their best album is The Final Cut.

48. Who is a favourite member of 23? Old Kent Road
Anyone who's not that douchebag singer.

49. What is the first song you ever heard by 43? Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Probably Let the Cool Goddess Rust Away because it's the first one on the album, but more probably it was Sunshine and Clouds (and Everything Proud) off that sellout McDonalds ad.

Seeing Other People, If You're Feeling Sinister, Judy And The Dream Of Horses, or any other song off If You're Feeling Sinister.
