It's late, I'm drunk, and it's been 18 months since I last answered one of these.

I started redoing this thing, which I did a while ago and found some minor insight into my music tastes and history. But then I started getting the same results again, because the questions repeat themselves for different numbers, and some bands get the same thing asked of them as last time. So for this one, I'm going to use my top 50 from the last 12 months.

1. How did you get into 31? Lucero
My brother started getting into this country-punk music, at the same time as I decided that I'd see what the deal was with Johnny Cash, so I was sort of co-opted into it. I listened to (and fucking loved) Ben Nichols' Last Pale Light In the West, so I decided to see what the deal was with his band.


2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Muse
No clue. Probably Butterflies and Hurricanes.


3. What's your favourite lyric by 29? Gogol Bordello
Ultimate: There was never any good old days / They are today, they are tomorrow / It's a stupid thing we say / Cursing tomorrow with sorrow.


4. What is your favourite album by 49? Cake
Comfort Eagle, although they were never really an album band to me.

5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Evil Cowards
None. They only have one, and I downloaded it.


6. What is your favourite song by 50? Bloc Party
Flux (Extended Version). The German version's also pretty killer.


7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad? The Mountain Goats
Ezekiel 7 and the Permanent Efficacy of Grace. Good God.

8. What is your favourite song by 15? Chuck Regan
I'll say The Light, even though it's by the Chuck Ragan & Austin Lucas duo.


9. What is your favourite song by 5? The Cat Empire
Miserere.


10. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? Modest Mouse.
I got this last time. Dashboard. Even needs have needs, tiny giants made of tinier giants.

11. What is your favourite album by 40? The Offspring
Americana. 1997, baby.


12. What is your favourite song by 10? Franz Ferdinand
Another repeat. Although now it's the single version of Lucid Dreams.


13. What is a good memory you have involving 33? Beirut
Sitting in a park in Woollahra smoking and drinking goon and listening to Henry talk about how he cries when he listens to Elephant Gun.


14. What is your favourite song by 37? Ben Nichols
The Last Pale Light in the West. Either version is fine.


15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? Bedouin Soundclash
Until We Burn in the Sun (the Kids Just Want a Love Song), because it's a wonderful track with a wonderful sentiment and is excellent to hear live.


16. How many times have you seen 24 live? Belle & Sebastian
None.

17. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? The Gaslight Anthem
Boomboxes And Dictionaries, in a 'sit down and appreciate them' sort of way, it's the first track on the first album. And it worked.


18. What is your favourite album by 11? Attack In Black
Marriage


19. Who is a favourite member of 1? NOFX
Still Fat Mike.


20. Have you ever seen 14 live? Eels
Nooooo. I missed them last time they were in Australia, the only time they'd been out since I've been into them.

21. What is a good memory involving 45? Plushgun
Listening to the album Pins & Panzers and thinking 'This is exactly what being an indie hipster is all about. Love and all that shit.'


22. What is your favourite song by 16? The National
Fake Empire. No question.


23. What is the first song you ever heard by 47? Rancid
Brad Logan, off Chef Aid.


24. What is your favourite album by 21? The Dodos
Visiter


25. What is your favourite song by 18? Sigur Rós
Nowadays it's Untitled #3/Samskeyti, although once upon a time Viðrar vel til loftárása was very special to me.


26. What is the first song you ever heard by 38? Mute Math
Collapse, by virtue of being track 1 on Mute Math.


27. What is your favourite lyric by 3? The Decemberists
This Soldiering Life
But I, I never felt so much life
Than tonight, huddled in the trenches,
Gazing on the battle field,
Our rifles blaze away;
We blaze away.


28. What is you favourite song by 2? Okkervil River
Another repeat. Still The War Criminal Rises and Speaks.

29. What was the first song you ever heard by 32? [Green Day
Green Day: Good Riddance, probably.


31. How many times have you seen 17 live? Reel Big Fish
They've been to Australia a total of five times since I've known them. I have seen them zero times.


32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy? Death Cab for Cutie
Someday You Will Be Loved.


33. What is you favourite album by 12? Jackson Jackson
Ooh. They have two albums. Both are amazing albums for being albums. I'll say the first, because not only does it narrate its theme (the Apocalypse) as well as Tools for Survival does (Love), it incorporates a motif of the Underground, and all that word entails. So The Fire Is On The Bird.


34. What is the worst song by 46? The Faint
Phone Call. Hmm.


35. What was the first song you ever heard by 34? Clint Mansell
Summer Overture (Summer).


36. What is you favourite album by 42? AFI
Another repeat. Sing the Sorrow.


37. How many times have you seen 39 live? Philip Glass
None, and I can't imagine it'd be particularly enthralling to.


38. What is your favourite album by 36? Tom Gabel
Strictly solo work (Against Me! is 9), it's Heart Burns by default.


39. What was the first song you ever heard by 28? Old Kent Road
M'unno. Probably Johnny Cerebellum.


40. What is you favourite album by 7? Electric Six
Still Señor Smoke, although if Covered In Gas were an E6 album it'd take the prize.
