Results from the Poll of Myself of the Top 20 Groups in 2009:
1. Isn't there a group called Fall Out Boy, or something?
2. Wait, I know - Queens of the Stone Age.... no they've probably broken up by now...
3. Ummmm.... how about Wolf Bait?
4. Actually, I made that last name up.
6. No, I hate Coldplay. Strike that last one.
7. Ummmm.... pass
8. Fall Out Boy.... no, I said them already. Shit!
9. Are the Pixies still together? How about Ween? If they are, then I name them.
12. There's some good songs on car commercials by some indie bands I can't think of.... but if you're selling your songs to Hyundai, you're an effing sell-out, so nevermind.
14. If Jack White would team up with Beck and Waylon Jennings' son - I'd name that band. That would be really good.... I guess. Nevermind, it would probably be awful.
16. I tell you what - let's quit this charade. I can't name a single contemporary band. Sue me. They all suck. How about we forget this whole thing ever happened?
