1.How did you get into no.29?
Cat Power - i saw her on austin city limits on PBS one day supporting The Pixies or something like that (maybe not the pixies... i think it was a band that i was really into, but i cant remember). then i was downloading some bootleg Dax Riggs from my brother one day and i noticed that i had room left on the cd for an entire other album. i searched his music to see what i could fit on there that i would like and i saw cat power's Moon Pix album and decided to give it a go. i fell in love with that cd.

2. What's the first song you ever heard by no.22?
I Got Mine

3. Whats your favorite lyric by no.33?
Agents of Oblivion - "We wither and blow-ow, where the smoke goes" (Wither). Maybe not my fave, but its the first one i thought of. so smoky and ethereal, i fucking love it.

4. How did you get into no.49?
Do Make Say Think - It's complicated. Basically, when i was in high school, there was this teacher (only like 5 years older than me, he looks pretty young, but he was awesome). and although i never personally had him for any classes, i would always talk to him and shit, and one day while skipping my english class to chill in his, i heard some do make say think, and i was pretty much the only person in the room who liked it; one thing lead to another, and i ended up borrowing a ton of cd's from him, including these guys.

5. How many albums by no.13 do you own?
Tenacious D - zero, but i used to have some on my old hard drive before it crashed. i can't remember how they got so high up on the list. they shouldnt be, i like a lot of bands better than them.

6. What is your favorite song by no.50?
i dont have a #50. it goes 49 then 51, cuz there seems to be some ties.

7. Is there a song by no.39 that makes you sad?
no #39 either, ironically.

8. What is your favorite song by no.15?
i have two #15s. Black Label Society and White Zombie. for the former, i'd have to see it's the doom troopin' live audio version of In This River. For the latter, it's hard to say, but maybe Feed The Gods. it's obscure, but it's hardcore.

9. What is your favorite song by no.5?
I don't think I can pick a favorite Johnny Cash song. But his rendition of Hurt has moved me to tears a couple of times (especially the [video artist=Johnny Cash]Hurt[/video] music video).

10. Is there a song by no.6 that makes you happy?
Days of the New - None of the songs are really "happy" songs per se. They all make me happy though, i guess, in how beautiful they are, God. ironically i have Dancing With The Wind stuck in my head. Wait, sorry. It's actually Dirty Road.

11. What is the worst song by no.40?
The String Quartet - i don't really know because i don't remember a lot of their stuff, but it all seemed pretty good.

12. What is your favorite song by no.10?
Radiohead - even though it's kind of cliche to say Creep, that song fucking rocks. (I'm actually probably only a nominal radiohead fan). Actually, it's definitely Exit Music (for a Film).

13. What is a good memory you have involving no.30?
Soundgarden - i don't know. i guess there's not really much other than listening to the ecstasy of the music itself.

14. What is your favorite song by no.38?
The Who - Eminence Front is pretty amazing, even though its a non-traditional who song. also (cliche warning once again) Behind Blue Eyes is phenomenal and Heaven and Hell from Live at Leeds. Oh and Won't Get Fooled Again, simply because it has one of the best rock n' roll screams of all time. and Baba O'Reily is a classic. goddamn, too many to choose. oh and love, reign o'er me from Quadrophenia, recently and famously covered by Eddie Vedder. (i also got to see Heart perform a live version of it recently).

15. Is there a song by no.19 that makes you happy?
Wilco and Korn are tied here, which is fucked up. for KoRn, no there isn't. they don't play happy music, and for Wilco, there's probably a song that makes me content, but im too lazy to think about that right now.

16. Is there a song by no.25 that makes you sad?
25 is a tie between Corrosion of Conformity and Pink Floyd. whereas most of The Wall is pretty depressing, the closest song from COC that i can think of right now would probably be Shelter.

17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23?
Acid Bath/The Raconteurs, and odd mix. for AB= i think it was something ridiculous like Thirteen Fingers or something, although i couldn't stand the whole song, so the first full song would probably have been Bones of Baby Dolls. for Raconteurs, i think it was Level.

18. What's your favorite lyric by no.11?
deadboy & the Elephantmen - too many fucking good lyrics to pick just one. seriously. wayyyy too many.

19. Who is a favorite member of no.1?
Metallica - Papa Het, but i miss newsted.

20. Is there a song by no.14 that makes you happy?
Red Harvest- no, this is a fluke.

21. What is a good memory involving no.27?
Margot & the Nuclear So and So's - seeing them live @ lolla 08.

22. What is your favorite song by no.16?
no #16.

23. What is the first song you ever heard by no.47?
Rob Zombie - i can't really remember. probably More Human Than Human or Living Dead Girl. i think the latter, and besides i think more human than human is white zombie anyway.

24. What is your favorite album by no.18?
The White Stripes - tough call, but probably Icky Thump.

25. What is your favorite song by no.21?
Megadeth - that's hard, but definitely something off Rust In Peace like Tornado Of Souls or something.

26. What is the first song you ever heard by no.26?
no #26.

27. What is your favorite album by no.3?
Dax Riggs - he only has one album under that moniker, and it's We Sing of Only Blood or Love. Amazing.

28. What is you favorite song by no.2?
Nine Inch Nails - can't decide. too many good songs. i can't even post honorable mentions, because that would be slighting the ones i didn't name, and that's not fair.

29. What was the first song you ever heard by no.32?
Marilyn Manson - I really can't remember, but I'm sure I was freaked out.

30. What is you favorite song by no.8?
Saul Williams - there's a lot. No One Ever Does and Black Stacey are up there though.

31. How many times have you seen no.17 live?
Tool - once.

32. Is there a song by no.44 that makes you happy?
Diamond Head - Sucking My Love and Am I Evil, since they were both covered by metallica.

33. How did you get into no.12?
Black Sabbath - i think i got heavy into metallica and then went backwards from there into their influences, even though i'd heard some previous sabbath on the radio and liked it (as i recall: Snowblind). so i bought We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll, and loved it.

34. What is the worst song by no.45?
Alice in Chains/ Stone Temple Pilots - i need to listen to more of both of these bands before i could say for sure.

35. What was the first song you ever heard by no.34?
Firebird/ Led Zeppelin/ Iron & Wine - don't remember for firebird, the zeppelin it was Stairway to Heaven, and iron & wine it was either My Lady's House or No Moon.

36. What was the first song you ever heard by no.48?
Red Hot Chili Peppers - dont know, probably something cliche.
