Jackson Rathbone: Tom Waits or The Black Keys
“I know he’s not really an MTV music kind of guy,” Twilight star Rathbone told THR. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Tom Waits video on MTV or ever will.”
As for the Black Keys, Rathbone said he’s been a fan of them since “way back in the day.”

Awkward’s Beau Mirchoff: The Black Keys
Jessica Lu: Maroon 5
“I wanna say Maroon 5, so I can make out with Adam Levine,” said the Awkard actress. “If there’s a woman in their music videos, they’re usually making out. So I’ll take care of it, ladies.”
Nikki Deloach: Pistol Annies
“I would love to rock out with those ladies,” the Awkward actress added.
