It's a boring poll! Except I like this as I can bore you with why I like the top 50 bands on my last.fm chart (I removed podcasts).

The Long Blondes – I reckon K Gillen mentioned them on his blog & then I bought their album when we went to see the Flaming Lips in Manchester

Quasi – All The Same. It was the first song on the album I bought, which I got just because Janet was the drummer

5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Regina Spektor - 2. Both of the accessible ones.
6. What is your favourite song by 50?
Cake – Short Skirt/Loooooong Jacket. Way before it was used on Chuck

Ladyhawke – Back Of The Van
9. What is your favourite song by 5?

11. What is your favourite album by 40?
Sufjan Stevens – The Christmas Ones as I've hardly listened to the Michigan one
12. What is your favourite song by 10?

13. What is a good memory you have involving 33)?
Feist – 1234 when it was sung on Sesame Street
14. What is your favourite song by 37?
Laura Veirs – Saltbreakers. The chanting is great (Look inside a space, look inside a space and you can tell)
15. Is there a song by 19 that makes you happy?
The Olivia Tremor Control – Jumping Fences. Short and sweet, I always include this song in mixes I make for anyone.
16. How many times have you seen 24 live?
Rilo Kiley - Three times. Once in Leeds supporting Bright Eyes (I HATE CONNOR!!!), then in London at the crappy Koko where stupid girls were screaming for them to play “The Frug” as it “would complete my life”. My brother, Freya & I all laughed at them. Then once in the Cockpit when they had brought out Under The Blacklight.
17. What is the first song you heard by 23?
Northern State – A Thousand Words. Again, the first song off the album which I bought as a Beastie Boy was involved
18. What is your favourite album by 11?
Los Campesinos! - Hold on Now Youngster. It has You! Me! Dancing!
19. Who is your favourite member of 1?
The Donnas – Donna C is the one I fancy the most. Although Donna F has the best Michael Jackson jokes.
20. How many times have you seen 14 live?
Deerhoof – Once supporting the Flaming Lips. And then I bought their album
21. Do you have any good memories involving 45?
Guillemots – I thought Fyfe was funny on Buzzcocks once, but seeing them supporting REM was spoilt by too many drunks.
22. What is your favourite song by 16?
Petra Haden – Apple Juice. I remember asking for this album one Christmas as I wanted anything Weezer related (and P Haden was in the Rentals). This was an unexpected album, but absolutely perfect
23. What is the first song you heard by 47?
Camera Obscura. I haven't a clue. I know the first time I saw them was when they supported Lambchop at the Barbican
24. What is your favourite album by 3?
Manic Street Preachers – The Holy Bible. Almost perfect.
25. What is your favourite song by 18?
St. Vincent. Marry Me.
26. What is the first song you heard by 38?
TV on the Radio. Again the first song off the album, so Halfway Home. I do buy some albums on the spur of the moment (providing I have heard of them).
27. What is your favourite lyric that 21 has sung?
Robyn - “One Left, One Right / That's How I Organise Them / You Know I Fill My Cups / No Need To Supersize Them”. Although the whole of Konichiwa Bitches is lyrical genius.
28. What is your favourite song by 2?
Flight Of The Conchords – The Tape Of Love. Sticky Sticky!
29. What is the first song you heard by 32?
Auf der Maur – probably Followed The Waves. I bought it because I liked her in Hole & wanted to see what Melissa came up with.
30. What is your favourite song by 8?
She & Him – This Is Not A Test. The 'Anyways' is a good hook.
31. How many times have you seen 17?
Weezer – Once at Leeds Festival. I wish I'd seen them at the time of Pinkerton rather than during Maladroit.
32. Is there a song by 44 that makes you happy?
Adam and Joe – COME ON MEATBAWLS!
33. What is your favourite album by 12?
Scarlett Johannson – Anywhere I Lay My Head. The one she did with Pete Yorn has a song that Northern Uproar also did so I can't choose that.
34. What is the worst song by 29?
Jenny Lewis – Godspeed. But it's not terrible, just my least favourite
35. What was the first song you heard by 34?
Ween – Freedom of '76. I heard it on MTV2, when anyone could have an hour mix and have it on the telly. I put this in my mix, which actually got shown, but I couldn't record it. MTV2 should go back to this.
36. What is your favourite album by 42?
Sparks – Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins. I know their other albums are better, but I love “...My Way” and that overrules my head
37. How many times have you seen 39 live?
Dressy Bessy – Never. I don't think many Elephant Six bands tour the UK
38. What is your favourite song by 36?
The Lovely Eggs – AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Tyrannosaurus Rex For Christmas
39. What is the first song you heard by 28?
Basia Bulat – In The Night. It came up on emusic & sounded good. Shame it's her best song by far.
40. What is your favourite album by 35?
Stephen Malkmus – Stephen Malkmus. Perfect Pop.
41. How did you get into 48?
Be Your Own Pet. I was in HMV in Harrogate & saw the CD. Jemima had sports socks on
42. Have you ever seen 7 live?
The Pipettes. Once at the Cockpit. Now they're a weird electro-two piece I doubt I'll see them again.
43. What song do you love by 43?
Sleater-Kinney - Leave You Behind. Total departure from their usual stuff & is more affecting for it
44. How many times have you seen 20)?
Kenickie – twice. Both at Reading Festival. Wish I saw them more (and also saw theaudience at the last Reading Festival I was at)
45. Who’s responsible for getting you into 25?
46. Is 30 one of your favorite artists?
CSS – not really. I like the first album, but I'm not crazy for them
47. Favorite song by 9?
Metric – Monster Hospital. BOOM SHIKA BOOM SHIKA BOOM BOOM BOOM
48. Would you like to see 46 live?
Amanda Palmer – Not sure as I'm a little scared of her & Freya doesn't like her that much.
49. Favorite member of 26?
The New Pornographers – Neko Case. As she has red hair
50. What’s the most played song on your computer by 27?
Those Dancing Days – Hitten. I think.
