Who? Why? How? What? Rock ’n’ roll is full of questions - some more stupid than others. Radio X counts down ten of the great unanswerables, from How Was It For You? to Why Does It Always Rain On Me?

1. James - How Was It For You?

A post-coital query (we think) from Tim Booth.

2. Travis - Why Does It Always Rain On Me?

Because you live in Scotland, Fran?

3. The Smiths - What Difference Does It Make?

It makes none, says Morrissey in this classic song.

4. The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Make your mind up, Joe! 

5. The Zutons - Why Won’t You Give Me Your Love?

Another needy lot - this time, from Liverpool.

6. Moby - Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?

Dunno Moby - what with him being a healthy vegan and all?

7. The Killers - Human

Are we human, asks Brandon Flowers? Or are we dancer? We still don’t understand what he means, all these years later.

8. The Mock Turtles - Can You Dig It?

See also: Pop Will Eat Itself’s similar query.

9. Oasis - Morning Glory

Liam asks: What’s the story? Oo-er.

10. David Bowie - Life On Mars?

Well, we’ve sent Curiosity Rover up there to find out.
