It’s been a good year for Gustav Wood and the Young Guns. Having brought their album Bones to the U.S. with Wind-up Records, its eponymous single reached No. 1 on the Active Rock radio chart. Then weekly rock mag Kerrang named “Bones” the #1 rock song of 2012. And then the band got to hear the WWE thunder as one of Wrestlemania’s theme songs. So in terms of prestige, Wrestlemania was the Young Guns’ Hulk Hogan (which means this interview makes us their Daniel Bryan). Wood kindly took time our from rocking your face off with his band’s new video “Towers (On My Way)” to answer our odd inquiries.

1) What person (living or dead) would you duel, and what’s your choice of weapon? 

Our prime minister David Cameron, and my weapon of choice a chain-mail glove.

He's so cool that leather jackets wear him.

2) If you could get away with one crime, what would it be? 

Tough one. Maybe rob a bank so I could live on a tropical island.

3) What job would you be terrible at, and why? 

Anything that involved math. Anything in accounting. Math is my weak point. That and being responsible with money. So…accounting again.

4) What are you afraid of? 

I have an irrational fear of aliens. That and cockroaches. I hate them.

5) What’s your most embarrassing high school moment? 

When I was maybe 13 I slipped and landed on my ass in front of about a thousand fellow school kids (the bus stops were right outside THREE separate schools and I was running across the road to catch one home). I was super shy and quiet anyway. Agony!

6) Would you rather encounter a ghost, aliens, or Bigfoot? Why?

Bigfoot because that would definitely be the lesser of the three in terms of being absolutely bloody terrified.

7) What respected/beloved musical acts bore you?

I was never into Primal Scream or The Stone Roses, those bands were horrible.

8) What’s a piece of pop culture you love but no one else remembers?  

I used to love a show called Jayce and The Wheeled Warriors that nobody else ever remembers.

We can back that.

We can back that.

9) What’s the most inexplicable attraction you’ve ever had to someone? 

I think Helen Mirren is a babe! Some of the other guys give me crap for it but Helen, I’ve got your back.

10) What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I ate tarantula once. That was truly awful. Horribly crunchy.

The nicest guy in History.

Gustav isn’t the first guy who rocks to endure 10 Weird Questions. He isn’t even the first guy named Wood to do so this week. We asked some of Top Gear’s Rutledge Wood and Ally Dickaty of The Virginmarys.

Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing comics or Cracked columns. He is one of the intolerably annoying on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley.

Cats never forgive this kind of thing.

Brendan conducted Man Cave’s first Girlfriend Audition with Jillette Johnson and found the most depressing classified ever with Now You Can Haz Job Working for Cat.
