i don't have a number 10. i have a tie for number 9. so...
for Aphex Twin i'll choose a time i was blasting Inkey$ in the broadcast studio of our college station during my radio show. my (then) girlfriend (now wife) was there with me and we were just rocking out and having a good time.
for Skinny Puppy i'll choose some memories of skateboarding with my friend jens and listening to the Testure single.

Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
no number three, but there aren't any songs i'm thinking of by either number 2 that make me sad. there are some Meat Beat Manifesto songs that i'll listen to if i'm already sad. there's one song (Untold Stories) that gives me chills up and down my spine with it's juxtaposing of the following samples:
"what is the world's most vicious animal?"
"i wish they'd find some way to control the subjects a man studies; a maniac with a lot of knowledge is a threat."
"but these are people. you don't handle them like animals."
"what is the world's most vicious animal?"
"God made man free. evil/free. evil/free. evil/free."
seriously gives me chills. always has.

What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
there's a tie for 2. for meat beat i'll choose a song where they actually do sing, Edge of No Control. for the misfits i'll choose Hybrid Moments.

there's a tie for 9. for Aphex Twin it has to be Acrid Avid Jam Shred. that might be my favorite song ever. for Skinny Puppy i'm going to go with Goneja.

How did you get into 3?
Meat Beat Manifesto - i remember seeing an add for 99% in a magazine and asking my friends what it was. the same friend who had bought Official Versionsaid something about thinking it was an industrial band and that i'd probably like it, so i checked it out. he was right.
i got into the Misfits because i was a skateboarder and all the skateboarders i knew listened to the misfits. they were also mentioned frequently in thrasher magazine.

    [i]What is your favourite lyric that 4 has sung? Boards of Canada doesn't sing. [/i] I guess you could say Come out to a beautiful place in the country or mention the backwards masking. If that's the case 1969 has my favorite lyrics of theirs.
