Their result for The "Which cult icon songwriter are you?" quiz ...

Tom Waits

a rat always knows when he's in with weasels....

You are Tom Waits: an American songwriter of near mythic proportions. Waits is equal parts bohemian urban poet and down-South rural bluesman. His sound has seen radical transformations and is always evolving. Lyrically, Waits' songs are populated by shady characters, hookers, truck stops, and even Lewis Carroll literature. Waits has played the role of piano ballad crooner, to blues man, to lounge lizard eccentric, to oddball cabaret singer, to screaming and banging on trash cans, to finding a sound that incorporates all of those sounds together: sometimes in the same song. Waits is a stubbon and inscrutable character who is impossible to pidgeonhole or sometimes even categorise. A true American treasure, indeed.
