I recently burnt a CD with a selection of songs from my favourite rock bands to listen to in my car. The order of tracks, along with the bands that sing them, as burnt onto the CD are listed below (note: these songs and bands may sound similar to some more well-known songs and bands but that's purely coincidental).

1. Sourest Thing - V3
2. I Still Haven't Heard What I'm Listening For - V3
3. Without and With Me - V3
4. Son - Pearl Honey
5. Spin the White Square - Pearl Honey
6. Better Woman - Pearl Honey
7. Last Hug - Pearl Honey
8. Dead - Pearl Honey
9. Off He Comes - Pearl Honey
10. Finding Your Religion - M.E.R.
11. Nobody Hurts - M.E.R.

When driving along listening to this fine collection of tunes, I usually put my CD player on random (ie. the order that the tracks are played does not follow any set pattern). If my CD player plays through all 11 tracks before repeating any of them, what is the probability that no two songs from the same band will be played one after the other?
