      And fans of the Misfits are the most likely to be drunk right now. 

      These are some of the hilarious insights gleaned from, a website that crunches user details from social-media-meets-music website Tastebuds.

      Created as a "hack weekend" project by the Tastebuds team, facts were compiled from surveys and user data from over 100,000 Tastebuds users.

      The results are as amusing as they are revealing.
