    50 tops artists meme stolen from Raichil... dare I get into meme's on here too??? Ugh... I do too many...

    1. How did you get into 29?
    Radiohead
    Eh, I think I just saw the album really cheaply and my sis said "Buy it!". I'd heard them before, so I knew I liked them enough, but it's "Fake Plastic Trees" that has gotten them so high on my top artists...

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    Motley Crue
    I can't imagine. Possibly the first track from Girls, Girls, Girls or Dr.Feelgood, because those are the albums my sister played the most.

    3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?
    Billy Joel
    "Your sister's gone out, she's on a date and you just sit at home and masturbate" (from Captain Jack)

    Schwarz Stein
    New Vogue Children

    Lol all of them. But You Little Fool probably makes me happiest.

    11. What is your favorite album by 40?
    Tymon Dogg
    I think Battle of Wills, but I also thinks that's a Frugivores album as opposed to Tymon Dogg himself (but the Frugivores are pretty much dead to the world, let alone last.fm)

    Meat Loaf
    The Monster is Loose
