erm quite a wide range as well, from dire staights to sabastien bach and others in between. and some rammestein/german electro-goth-metal for anger management and a perfect sword drill tempo.

do you need them for chav hunting? and what weapon would you suggest. so far i think its a bear trap with a diamonte encrusted burbury baseball cap.
