Research, boys and girls.

I was reminded at the weekend that there are a lot of music-related questions I've been wanting to ask you all for a while now - think of it as research, or just as satisfying my curiosity, or as a way to procrastinate for just a few more minutes on a Monday morning if you like. Of course I wouldn't post a huge amount of questions on one day - that would be cruel, and less likely to get any answers. So consider this part one. ~smile~
But seriously, please help me out if you've time - it's not *quite* just idle curiosity.
Edit : And I ought to have said - please be serious, or as serious as you can manage to be anyway. ~g~ I intend to write things on the back of this, and I really want to know what you honestly think, rather than, y'know, comedy answers. I'll shut up now.

an incredibly awful band who should be shot through with arrows and set alight no matter what.

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…
