Taylor Momsen - Taylor Momsen Inspired By Nirvana

Taylor Momsen became a rock musician after growing up listening to AC/DC and Nirvana.

The Pretty Reckless frontwoman - currently working on a follow-up to the group's 2010 debut 'Light Me Up' - was inspired to start making heavy rock 'n' roll music by her father's albums.

She said: ''My dad has a massive record collection. So I grew up listening to vinyl, you know all the classics, Beatles, Zeppelin, Who, Pink Floyd, you know AC/DC, Soundgarden, Nirvana. So I just, I kind of grew up with it, and it just stuck.''

The 18-year-old singer-and-actress was ''so excited'' when the 'Miss Nothing' hitmakers completed their debut album, but she thinks it's the ''most incredible feeling in the world'' when fans sing her own songs back to her during live performances.

She added to PerezHilton.com: ''Finishing the record was the first thing. When it was actually done, you know, I was so excited. But then, you know writing any type of song - any time you finish something that's like the best feeling in the world.

''And then what comes after that is playing it live, and then from, translating from playing it live to having the fans sing every word to every song back to you is just the most incredible feeling in the world.''
