Music Tag

So I saw this on Makeup-Pixi3 and decided to steal it. Music means a hell of a lot to me, it's gotten me through a lot of things and expressed things for me I haven't been able to say. I plan on getting that quote tattooed on me some day, as cliche as that might be.
What’s your favourite type of music?
Rock above all else has been my staple, I probably lean towards the more "emo" end of the spectrum, but I enjoy bits from all across the board. Seriously my iPod has everything from Cradle of Filth to Cascada and Busted (I still love Busted, I'm sorry), but the majority falls somewhere in the rock category.

What’s your least favourite type of music?
Rap. Or at least the mainstream stuff I've heard. I'm sure there's something out there that is eloquent and I may even like, but the all "I'z so gangstah wit mah bitchez and dollahz" stuff, nah. Oh and most of the manufactured pop stuff irritates me, sorry (not sorry) Beiber and One Direction fans but I just can't even...

What’s the best gig you’ve been to?
Either A Day To Remember at Manchester Academy or William Control at The Roadhouse in Manchester. A Day to Remember because they're mine and my boyfriend's favourite band and it was just a wonderful experience between the two of us and they played "our" song and yeah... William Control because he's an amazing guy, an amazing performer and I was on the front row in this tiny intimate venue. It was an amazing show, I got to meet him afterwards and during the gig he touched me. I fangirled a bit.
Honestly though I've been to so many amazing gigs and had so many amazing experiences it's hard to pick. It'd be easier to pick the bad ones xD

What albums are you listening to at the moment?
At the moment I have Biffy Clyro "Opposites" and Falling In Reverse "The Drug In Me Is You" on repeat most of the time. Both amazing albums and well worth checking out if that's your thing and you haven't already.

What's your favourite bands/artists & favourite albums?
A Day To Remember are one of my all time favourite bands. Other favourites are Biffy Clyro, My Chemical Romance and The Used. I still have a lot of nostalgic love for Busted, Funeral For A Friend, Aiden and The Blackout though the later albums from FFAF and The Blackout have kind of passed me by without really grabbing me. From First To Last was a long time favourite of mine in high school and college.
Album wise I really can't pick, though itunes is telling me I should be recommending Homesick from A Day to Remember, Only Revolutions from Biffy Clyro and MCR's Danger Days.

If you could instantly know how to play any instrument, what would it be?
Piano. I used to take lessons but only managed my Grade 1 before I had to quit. I just really love piano, it's so beautiful and elegant.

I want to tag a couple of people, but like Makeup Pixi3 says anyone can [andshould!] do this if they want.
Anyhoodles, I tag
Ali from Zombies Wear Eyeliner/Bandshirts
Karoliina from Bones & Lillies
Rach from The Beauty Spot
Nancy from The Dark Side of Beauty
Hannah from Midnight Violets
