What was your favorite band when you were a teenager?
I’m not sure that I had a favorite band as a teenager but I loved watching VH1 and MTV with my brothers when we were in elementary school. We would often pretend we were the band we were listening to and would rock out on our rubber band guitars and jump off furniture. It was awesome!
