I've always got time to kill.

1. How did you get into 29? (The Pixies)
I think I heard Monkey Gone to Heaven somewhere and I was hooked.

2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (The Jesus and Mary Chain)

Snakedriver, when I saw The Crow.

3. How many albums by 13 do you own? (Modest Mouse)
Seven

4. What is your favorite song by 5? (Elliott Smith)
Wow, that's tough. I'll always love Needle in the Hay because of the way it was featured in The Royal Tenenbaums (besides the fact that it's beautiful on its own). Last Call, Waltz #1, and Pitseleh are also favorites.

5. What is your favorite song by 15? (Pavement)
That's also tough! A three-way tie between Passat Dream, Fin, and Stop Breathin'.

6. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy? (The National)
Green Gloves, hands down. I could (and have) listen to it for hours.

7. What is your favorite song by 10? (Deerhunter)
Spring Hall Convert! 4 minutes and 30 seconds of heaven.

8. What is a good memory you have involving 30? (Slowdive)
Hearing When the Sun Hits for the first time. It was winter. I was blown away.

9. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy? (Wolf Parade)
Modern World makes me very happy for some reason, despite its dystopian implications.

10. How many times have you seen 26 live? (Jeff Buckley)
None. That would have been one hell of a show...

11. What is the first song you ever heard by 23? (Fugazi)
Waiting Room. That bassline is like addictive lava bubbling from a pure punk volcano.

12. What is your favorite album by 11? (Mogwai)
Probably Come On Die Young.

13. Who is a favorite member of 1? (Cut Copy)
Dan Whitford! Time Stands Still when I think of him. <3

14. Have you ever seen 14 live? (Sigur Ros)
Not yet. Not YET.

15. What is a good memory involving 27? (Swervedriver)
Just hearing them for the first time. I was reading a review of Mezcal Head on PopMatters and the reviewer described Never Lose That Feeling as having "one of the most orgasmic guitar crescendoes ever committed to tape." Naturally, I was intrigued. He was pretty much on the money.

16. What is your favorite song by 16? (Joy Division)
Probably Disorder. It's the very first song I heard by them and I was hooked from then on. Peter Hook-ed, if you will.

17. What is your favorite album by 18? (Junior Boys)
I don't actually own any albums from them, but I guess I'll have to say So This Is Goodbye, since I have more songs from that than Last Exit.

18. What is your favorite song by 21? (Atlas Sound)
River Card, followed by Recent Bedroom.
Lost and Found (for A.O.) is pretty sweet, too.

19. What is the first song you ever heard by 25? (Josef K)
Heaven Sent. It was heaven-sent.

20. What is your favorite album by 2? (Ride)
Nowhere. Nothing can match its grandeur and transcendent bliss. I should probably listen to Going Blank Again in full (I don't have much interest in Carnival of Light or Tarantula except maybe as documents of the band's demise), but I doubt it could take away the place that Nowhere has in my heart.

21. What is you favorite song by 3? (Sonic Youth)
...Damn. I think I'll have to do a Top 5:
1. Shadow of a Doubt
2. Marilyn Moore
3. Sunday
4. No Queen Blues
5. Schizophrenia

22. What is you favorite song by 8? (Mark Lanegan)
Creeping Coastline Of Lights.

23. How many times have you seen 17 live? (The Clash)
None. I wasn't even alive when they disbanded.

24. What is the worst song by 12? (The Cure)
Do they even have any bad songs? If so, I haven't heard them.

25. What was the first song you ever heard by 28? (Chapterhouse)
Falling Down. Classic classic classic, so totally 90s.

26. What is you favorite album by 7? (Wilco)
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

27. What is your favorite song by 24? (Andrew Bird)
At the moment, Happy Birthday Song.

28. Is there a song by 9 that makes you happy? (The Lemonheads)
Into Your Arms. So simple and sweet. Lots of happy memories tied to this one.

29. What is your favorite album by 4? (Radiohead)
Probably Kid A.

30. How many albums do you own by 20? (Interpol)
Two. Plus fistfuls of demos, remixes, and other rarities; I was immersed in Interpol for quite a while.
