Chris Martin and Chris Phillips as IAmDynamite is one of the great modern duo-bands that manages to make two guys sound like an army, easily putting them up there with acts like Chromeo and our own Morgue City.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Supermegafantastic f or the infectious rock and rhythm machine that it is. "Carolina" alone is worth a thousand lesser songs. We got all up in the Chrises' collective grill to find out what we could learn from them in 30 seconds.

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Chris Martin: "Home" by Phillip Phillips. What's selling this year, Mumford and Sons? Cool, then we'll do that.

Chris Phillips: "Friday" by Rebecca Black. And it's the worst because that random dude rapped on it. Awful!

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

CM: "I blew up your body, but you blew my mind," from "In Every Dream Home a Heartache" by Roxy Music.

CP: "She's a wild one uhooooooo" from "Maneater" by Hall and Oates.

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you on stage. What do you do?"

CM: Jump into the crowd, throwing caution to the wind, and engage in a Fight Club-style free-for-all.

CP: Drink it if it's full. Throw it back if it's empty.

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?

CM: BEING James Brown, live at the Apollo in 1962.

CP: Well, first choice... Houston! Close second... International Space Station. Because it's international... Everyone is welcome.

RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?

CM: One million bananas.

CP: Hovercraft, helicopter, Shelby Cobra, and nice house.
