    Which song do you prefer, #1 or #20?
    Jimi Hendrix vs Soul Coughing... lol... I love my Jimi, but between these two particular tracks, I'd have to say Soul Coughing wins.

    What album is #2 from?
    Transformer

    What do you think about the artist who did #3?
    Lol, 2 Live Crew... Well, they made at least one track with a lasting impression. I mostly have this song as a joke to play in awkward situations...

    Is #4 one of your favorite songs?
    Not particularly.

    Who does #5 remind you of?
    Everlong reminds me of being 10 - 11 and blaring 96.3 the Edge when my parents weren't home.

    Does #6 have better lyrics or music?
    I'd have to say music, mostly because I rarely listen to the lyrics in this kind of music anyway.

    I'd assume some of them like it.

    What does #8 remind you of?
    Pretty much all CCR reminds me of being a kid in the summertime.

    Which song do you prefer #9 or #19?
    The Hives or House of Pain? Another toughy... I actually love both of these songs, but Jump Around is far more iconic of my favorite era of hip hop and therefore I prefer it.

    When did you first hear #10?
    When I listened to a bunch of Phunk Junkeez stuff after liking one of their songs that was featured in the credits of the movie "Tommy Boy"

    What genre is #11?
    Thrash Metal

    What color does #12 remind you of?
    Gray, this particular song is fuzzy and crappy, I need to get a better version of it.

    Can you play #13 on any instrument?
    haha, I am musically impaired... no, but this would be an awesome one to try, one of my favorite Deftones songs.

    What is your favorite lyric from #14?
    "I'll leave my room open till sunrise for you
    I'll keep my eyes patiently focused on you
    Where are you now I can hear footsteps I'm dreaming
    And if you will, keep me from waking to believe this"

    Is #15 a good song to dance to?
    Haha, hell yeah it is!

    Is #16 more of a "nighttime" or "daytime" song?
    CAKE is good anytime of the day!

    Is #17 a happy or sad song?
    I'd say its more bad ass... but "happy"

    Is #18 better to listen to alone or with friends?
    I think most people would enjoy this song, but I typically enjoy listening to music alone better than with other people.

    have you ever seen #19 live?
    Nope.

    how did you find out about the band who's #20?
    Classic Rock radio stations, back when I was an early teen.

    Tie between Comfort Eagle and Never There
    How did you get into 3?

    How many time have you seen 9 live?
    None. Its on the list.

    What is a good memory you have involving 2?
    Haha, a few weeks ago out celebrating at a Karaoke bar, a friend signed us up to sing Scar Tissue. He forgot about the high note at the end of each chorus, and everyone was amazed that I could hit them.

    Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
    Not really.

    What is your favorite album of 5?
    The Moon and Antarctica

    What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung?
    “Fool enough to almost be it and cool enough to not quite see it. And old enough to always feel it Always old, I'll always feel this . No more promise, no more sorrow
    No longer will I follow Can anybody hear me? I just want to be me. When I can, I will
    Try to understand That when I can, I will.”
