(Newser) – If your idea of a good first date involves a roll in the hay, you’re probably not a Coldplay fan. You might be into Nirvana, though, a survey finds. The dating site polled users on their willingness to have sex on the first date and compared it to their musical tastes, the Atlantic Wire reports. After Coldplay fans, those into Adele, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry were the least interested in first-date sex.

On the other hand, fans of Nirvana, Metallica, Linkin Park, and Kanye West were most enthusiastic about the prospect, in that order. Why? “Those theoretically highly-sexed Nirvana fans are aging Gen Xers, who, warily eyeing 20th anniversary of the release of Nevermind later this year, feel confronted with their own mortality and want to get their last bit of sexing in,” suggests Elspeth Reeve. As for Coldplay, "even the band's name sounds like slang for frigidity," she writes.
