    Stolen from Kevmaster but every survey is stolen... ;<

    1. What are you listening to right now?
    Primordial - Autumn's Ablaze

    2. What song makes you sad?
    Regina Spektor - Chemo Limo

    3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
    Caramell - Caramelldansen (Speedycake Remix)
    This stands representative for all the horrible kawaii music AMVs I had to endure in my life so far.

    4. Your all time favorite band?
    They're the only band where I can say that they never put out anything that was bad, they practically invented a new very unique style for themselves and their music is the only thing that I can listen to while it's so hot outside that the air starts flickering.

    5. Your newly discovered band is?
    I guess the band that surprised me the most over the last week was Gehenna. I was listening to First Spell and somehow it impressed me. I doubt that I'll actually make a habit of listening to them more, but from all of the albums I've went through the last few days this is probably the one that stands out the most for me.

    6. Best female voice?
    Hands down Joan Baez. There will never and has never been a woman with a voice like hers in all of history. Opera singers might have the better education but they don't have the better soul.

    7. Best male voice?
    Pete Seeger. If you sound like an old man that's just sitting on his front porch telling old sad stories of your life making everyone cry from nostalgia there's nobody that could be better.

    8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
    Objectively speaking? Metal. My charts show that pretty well, but I gotta say that my heart is connected to almost every type of music.

    9. What do you listen to to hype you up?
    Black Sabbath - The Wizard

    10. What do you listen to to calm down?
    Nothing. That's one of the reasons why I can't fall asleep while listening to music. It always gets me in a constant state of alertness, I'm usually too concentrated to calm down. It is true that I find the musical works of Gustav Holst or Frédéric Chopin to be very relaxing but not to that kind of an extent. Even when I want to read while listening to music I have to turn the volume way down so I don't get distracted too much.

    11. Last concert you went to?
    Some underground elitist jazz club in berlin. Totally too cool 4 u. ;>

    12. Band you find yourself listening to the most right now?
    Darkthrone. Makes no sense according to my charts? Exactly, but the fact that I actually went back to listen to them again in my playlist, especially since it's black metal means a lot to me. It's not hard to always come back to catchy little songs, but for those it's usually a time span of half a year where I always come back to the same artists. But very recently speaking, I'd go with Darkthrone.

    13. Most hated band?
    E Nomine. Seriously, get a new schtick.

    14. Song that makes you think?
    Ulver - Der Alte

    15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?
    Antony and the Johnsons. It's the perfect example of beautiful music being completely ignored because people have no idea what to make of it. Also homophobes etc.

    16. Coolest music videos?
    The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist
    (Video on YT)
    Fatboy Slim - Weapon Of Choice
    (Video on YT)

    17. Music video with the most babe watch?
    t.A.T.u. - Beliy Plaschik
    (Video on YT)

    18. What do you play/would you play in the bedroom to spice things up?
    Earth, Sleep, Electric Wizard, Merzbow and Sunn O))). I'd turn it up so loud it would be trance-like.

    19. Can you play a musical instrument?

    20. Ever been in a mosh pit?
    No, I think it's fake. If you wanna fight after a concert do it for real. Don't fake it during the concert. ;p

    21. Are you in a band?

    22. If yes, what kind of music does your band play?

    23. Ever dated a musician?

    24. If yes, what kind of music did he/she/they play/instrument/band?

    25. If no, would you consider?
    Depends, I wouldn't date a musician who's an idol and has to tour around the world all the time.

    26. Do you wish yourself that you were a musician?
    No. I have different priorities in my life, and music is more than just a hobby, it needs all the attention you can give it.

    27. Best chick band you know of?

    28. Best guy band you know of?
    See 4. Jedi Mind Tricks is a close second though.

    29. Last song that you heard on radio/cd?
    Westlife - Uptown Girl
    ....dedede she's been livin' in her white bread world... -.-

    30. What do you think of classical music?
    I think that it's definately the most pure and most complex type of music. Nothing more though.

    31. What do you think of Country music?
    The old stuff is amusing and melancholic, the new stuff is mostly garbage.

    32. What do you think of Death metal?
    You can very rarely distinguish between songs, but that's what makes it so interesting. At least when it's an olschool style and it's being played technically impressive there's nothing to complain about. As for melodeath though, 99% of that is shit.

    33. Last BIG band that you saw live?

    34. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
    Yes. However I find it pretentious and ridiculous when bands such as Sigur Rós invent their own languages to look more hip. The genre is the exception to that rule. I also think it's unnecessary for metal bands to sound more brutal by recording songs in any kind of scandinavian language. Doesn't sound brutal at all, english sounds just as harsh IMO.

    35. What famous musician do you find sexy?
    Fred Durst & Yulia Volkova.

    36. Worst concert moment?
    When Mastodon was opening for Tool and they didn't get any recognition whatsoever. I'm not a big fan of either now, but Mastodon is superior IMO.

    37. Funny Concert moment?
    Standing right next to my uncle, my aunt and their friends during a Wir sind Helden performance. I was being quiet the whole evening until they started playing Darf Ich Das Behalten. One of my uncle & aunt's friends suddenly looks at me totally baffled since I know all the lyrics by heart and am singing along throughout the whole song. :>

    38. Sad Concert moment?

    39. Best local act you can think of?
    Crematory & Mr. Virgin & His Love Army ('sup chivas)

    40. If you were a musical instrument what would you be?
    The cello - hard to figure out but those who do never let go of it.
    (Oh ;D)

    41. Do you listen to the radio?

    42. Do you watch music TV?
    There is no 'music TV' anymore, there is only Virgin Diaries and MTV Made. But I guess this counts: UVTV

    43. Do you follow the music charts, like the top 40?
    They still do that? Oh yeah, to sell ringtones, right?

    44. Have you met any famous musicians?

    45. Are any of your friends/family etc musicians?
    My neighbors down the street are classic fanatics. They can play anything because they have the right mindset and discipline for it. But that also means that they usually don't tend to hang out with a bum-spirited person like myself. ;p

    46. Song that best describes your feelings right now?
    Oh look I am so down this survey made me so depressed.
    Oh look I am so happy this survey made me so happy.
    Seriously what the fuck do you expect?

    49. Song that describes your life?
    Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name (not literally)

    50. Do you know the names of all the band members that you listen to?
    Most of the time I think that's really unimportant. All of them are being represented through their collective band name. A guitar player can be awesome in one band and horrible in another just because he doesn't feel like playing their style or doesn't get along with the other members as much.

    51. Does a musician’s physical attractiveness play a role in the music that you listen to?
    It helps.

    52. What famous musician do you want to marry?
    The Let Go-Version of Avril Lavigne. Bring her back to me! ._.

    53. Favourite movie soundtrack?
    Clint Mansell - The Fountain OST

    54. Any things bands do that you hate?
    Not really.

    55. What do your parents listen to?
    Myslovitz, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Joan Baez, Johannes Brahms, Pete Seeger, Barry McGuire, Cat Stevens, Dido, The Police, Uriah Heep.

    56. What are you listening to right NOW?
    Primordial - The Cruel Sea

    57. Do you wear band T-shirts?

    58. What do you think of people who do?
    Depends on whether it's a fashionable shirt or not.

    59. What music sub-culture do you feel like you belong to?
    I tend to get along well with punks and goths...

    60. What song is stuck in your head right now?
    Fatboy Slim - Weapon Of Choice
    Goddamn you Christopher Walken!

    61. Do you sing in the shower?

    63. If so, what? If not, why not?
    Malchik Gay, Malchik Gay...

    64. Would you rather marry a musician or be one yourself?
    Be one.

    65. What is in your walkman/discman right now?
    Regina Spektor, Meat Loaf & 300 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    66. Hanson moves in next door to you, do you go introduce yourself, or do you arrange to beat them up?
    I'd try to get into the pants of the youngest one.

    67. Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll, you dig?

    68. Do you cook to music?
    No, but I would if the kitchen were anywhere near my computer.

    69. Do you sing in the toilet?
    It happens.
