Music curiosity poll.

Every now and again, I am seized by the urge to ask you lot a series of poll-type questions about music. It is a foolish urge, as it invariably results in lots of you telling me why I'm wrong about things, but it is also an irresistible one, so I present to you A Poll About These New Bands And Whatsit.

As ever - and this should be obvious, but it never is, is it? - if none of the clicky options suit your particular temperament, I would love you to comment and tell me what you really think. I would love ANY of you to comment and tell me what you really think. Particularly in view of Question 7, where I used up all the tickybox options and so have probably left bands out, and where I would like to know *which* songs you've heard by said bands, and what you thought.

But, whatever. Humour me a little, humour me a lot, it's all good. ~smile~
Edit : Yes, all right, I should have had an option for 'This band is ok but I'm really not that bothered'. Feel free to comment and slap me with fish for forgetting that not everyone veers from extreme to other extreme in the same way I do. ~s~
