• Music survey.

    27 Nov 2010, 23:46 by itisyouranthem

    Which bands/artist do you own the most albums by?
    Uhm.. Dmitri Shostakovich, 3 DVDs, 39 CDs, 11 LPs, and 4 boxsets of all the symphonies (another 42 cds). This is actually kind of ridiculous when you just see the numbers but I swear all the recordings are different and worth it!

    What was the last song you listened to?
    Wovenhand - The Threshingfloor.

    What's in your CD player right now?
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Take Them On, On Your Own.

    What's your favorite local band/group?
    G.O.T.V., but they broke up :(.

    What was the last show you attended?
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in Frankfurt, last tuesday.

    What was the greatest show you've ever been to?
    The BRMC Frankfurt shows are definitely up there, but also the performance of Shosty's 11th symphony I saw a few weeks ago in Rotterdam, and the performance or Raskatov's A Dog's Heart at the Stopera in Amsterdam earlier this year. And ehm, Simian yeeeaars ago and Saïan Supa Crewand The Blood Brothers so many others.

    1. Take your top ten artists and get their 'emo rating'. If you look on the artist page and then click "Tags" you can see how many times they've been tagged emo:

    System of a Down: 93 (WTF LOL!!!)
    Evanescence: 47
    Linkin Park: 75
    My Chemical Romance: 1124
    Staind: 20 (slightly surprising)
    Avril Lavigne: 24
    Vladimir Ashkenazy: 1 (wow that is amazing, a pianist getting even 1 emo vote)
    Nikolai Lugansky: 0 (well just about no one listens to his music anyway)
    Simple Plan: 125
    Sum 41: 97

    2. Add them all together and divide by 10 to get the average:


    3. Then divide that by the average of the top ten emo artists, which is: 911.5


    4. Multiply your result by 100 to get a percentage.


    of course, this is really skewed, so ignore this quiz.

    How Mainstream are you?

    1. List your top 10 artists and amount of listeners to each.

    System of a Down203,980
    Linkin Park141,749
    Avril Lavigne104,113
    My Chemical Romance116,512
    Vladimir Ashkenazy4,546
    Simple Plan63,404
    Sum 4195,208
    Nikolai Lugansky129

    2. Add up the listeners: 942965

    3. Divide by 10: 94297

    4. The average listener on last.fm listens to: Radiohead, The Beatles, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Death Cab For Cutie, Green Day, System of a Down, Gorillaz, Nirvana, and Metallica. All those bands added up and divided by 10 equal: 248,919

    5. Take your score and divide by average.

    68793/94297 = 37.88%

    I am 37.88% mainstream...

    Not sure if this is too accurate, because those "mainstream" bands are not exactly mainstream in the Bay Area, United States, or wheck-they-are. But that's my two cents.
