It's the new year and many people take the opportunity to improve their lives by making resolutions that they rarely stick to. Musicians are not exempt from this and we've pieced together a number of their resolutions for 2012.

DZA from Cloud Control
Achieve a higher plain of being.
Florence Welch from Florence & The Machine
I make resolutions every five minutes and then I never stick to them.
To write a book and not fall in love.
Gene Simmons from KISS
To never forget the sacrifices our Military has made for us. Voluntarily.
Dave Mustaine from Megadeth
To always try to do right by my fellow man and to remember to practice tithing, the religious act of giving back, as much as I can.
Lita Ford from The Runaways
For 2012, I want to make sure I eat healthier and work out more to get ready for the release of my next album and for a bunch of shows!
Phil Collen from Def Leppard
I personally don't make New Year's resolutions. Nearly all resolutions folks wait a year to say don't get honored. I usually make a resolution whenever I think of it. Having said that and after enjoying all the vegan chocolate in London that I can, "I'm never going to eat again!
Paul Cook from Sex Pistols
Make one up for me.
Michael Paget from Bullet for My Valentine
My resolution will be to make 2012 an all round better year than 2011 -- if that's at all possible [he smiles]. We will return with a new album and want to wish all our fans a happy new year and say thank you!
Tom Delonge from Blink 182
I want to get another tattoo. But I need to exercise before I get it because I want to be able to show it off and look really awesome. It's mostly on my genital area. No, no, I want to do a back piece.
Travis Barker from Blink 182
Our New Year's resolution is for Tom to get a back piece.
