    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

    // what was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    Start Today of course

    // what is your favourite album of 2?
    Jeez...I'm going to have to say The Greatest Story Ever Told just because it was the first one I got and I've listened to it way more than any other of theirs

    // what is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
    Helium balloons/fill an empty room/I guess that I'll save this birthday cake/for another rainy day (something like that, I'm not listening to it right now)

    // how many times have you seen 4 live?
    Never, unfortunately. I would love to see Ween.

    // what is your favourite song by 7?
    Jeez...Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis comes to mind.

    // what is a good memory you have considering the music of 10?
    Driving to the beach listening to To All The Girls.

    // is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
    Nope.

    // what is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?
    I don't know. Let's take "Hey man, let me tell you a joke/what's attached to a leash that it made itself/the punchline is the way you've been fucking yourself"

    // what is your favourite song by 9?
    I dunno, they all sound the same. Fuck You Jesus Fuck You Oh Lord maybe.

    // how did you get in to 3?
    Someone posted it on Kraytracker and I had heard about them for a while.

    // what was the first song you heard by 1?
    Nausea

    // what is your favourite song by 4?
    Oh man. I don't think it's possible for a Ween fan to answer that.

    // how many time have you seen 9 live?
    Zero, but I'd like to see them live.

    // what is a good memory you have concerning 2?
    The time I went to see them live this Friday.

    // is there a song of 8 that makes you sad?
    I guess all of it considering the circumstances around his life.

    // what is your favourite album of 5?
    Requiem

    // what is your favourite lyric that 3 has sung?
    Don't know any of their lyrics...

    // what is your favourite song of 1?
    Maybe Johnny Hit And Run Paulene. It's a hard question. I think with X it's more about the whole album than one song.

    // what is your favourite song of 10?
    Shake Your Rump maybe.

    // how many times have you seen 8 live?
    Zero, he's dead.

    // what is your favourite album of 1?
    Shit...one of the first three. I guess I'll have to go with Los Angeles.

    // what is a great memory you have considering 9?
    I can't say I have any.

    // what was the first song you heard by 8?
    River Song I guess.

    1. Take your top ten artists and get their 'indie rating' If you look on the artist page and then click "Tags" you can see how many times they've been tagged "indie":

    X - 11

    Dennis Wilson - 0
    Reverend Beat-Man and the Un-Believers - 0
    Tom Waits - 127
    Minor Threat - 15
    Bomb the Music Industry! - 1

    2. Add them all together and divide by 10 to get the average
    25.4

    3. Then divide that by the average of the top ten indie artists, which is 1585.4
    .016

    4. Multiply your result by 100 to get a percentage.
    1.6%
  • I don't care that I don't have any friends, I don't care that I've only played 1222…

    27 avr. 2006, 4h20m

    Find the number of listeners for each of your top 10 artists and add them up and divide by 10 to get the average.

    1. Bracket - 3,109
    2. X - 11,885
    3. Bomb the Music Industry! - 1,261
    4. The Dust Brothers - 21,825

    8. OZMA - 8,504
    9. Ween - 36,221
    10. Descendents - 29,685

    Okay, so add up, divide by ten: 27252.6

    Dividing that by the highest possible rating, (At the time of writing, this was Radiohead at 284,162) and converting it to a percentage, I get: 9.6%

    Shiiiit yeah.
