    Go to http://www.googlism.com and take your favourite sentence about each of your top 5 artists.

    1. The Dresden Dolls is worth some extra effort.

    2. The Decemberists is like cheating on Neutral Milk Hotel

    3. Regina Spektor is a new york based singer/ songwriter/ pianist
    That was the only one for Regina. =(

    4. The Smiths is the aggressive stance taken by both bulls and cows during the rutting period

    5. Chameleon Circuit is so old no one supports it anymore.

    That was fun. Back to job seeking.

    1. The Dresden Dolls - 210,137
    2. The Decemberists - 481,548

    18. The Long Blondes - 98,520
    19. Bright Eyes - 591,855
    20. Jeff Buckley - 452,533

    Total: 6,844,469

    Divide by 20.

    Average: 342,223.45

    Divide by the number of Radiohead listeners...

    Radiohead - 1,227,152

    342,223.45/1,227,152
    = 0.27887617018918601770603804581666

    Multiply by 100 and round, if neccessary.

    0.27887617018918601770603804581666 x 100
    = 27.887617018918601770603804581666%
    = 27.89%

    I'm 27.89% Mainstream.

    Again, though. It's only funny coz Radiohead's the control.
