The band you like but are embarassed about/feel is a little out of place in your collection: Evanescence is probably the most out of place.

What musical event would you most like to see happen: That time where the Arctic Monkeys told David Bowie to move out of the way, except David Bowie would turn into Jareth from Labyrinth and kick their asses with some crazy crystal thing
Musical hero: David Bowie. Legend.
Music's biggest enemy/ies in my opinion are: 13 year old girls. Stop it! Stop it!
