name the top five vocalists in your opinion and give reasons why:
Morrissey - the instantly recognisable voice that cuts through mixes and hearts
Steve Bays - just beautiful, and so dynamic
Jarvis Cocker - super-sexy and lots of charisma
Amanda Palmer - very powerful
Frank Black - nobody else can pull it off.
list the top five bands in your opinion and reasons why (spectacular riffs, lyrics, etc):
Hot Hot Heat - they're fun and quirky, great songs, intelligent (but not condescening) lyrics
Dresden Dolls - sexy, funny, clever and pretty
Joe Jackson - just a big influence, I guess. Really well written songs, great lyrics
the Grates - fun. catchy. clever. cute.
You Am I - good songs. totally original chord progressions. good lyrics.

What are your views of America and its government: Don't give a fuck. I'm not american. And i'll be an American Idiot before I become as jaded and pathetic as Greenday.
In what genre of music would you classify yourself: music, duh. Genres = segregation
How old were you during your first show: 12
Who was playing: Gerling, Joe Strummer, Foo Fighters, Sonic Animation, Spiderbait, Jebediah, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Chemical Brothers, Grinspoon, Blink 182, Eskimo Joe, Atari Teenage Riot, Primal Scream, Nine Inch Nails etc. I didn't see ALL of them, because of conflicting time schedules.
