11 weeks


Ready for Quiz #12?

All are welcome to play, no experience needed!


Quiz Rules/Format
(feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

  1. Guessed it at 400, confirmed at 200…

  2. Zack permalink

    500. Too easy.

    • Nice work Zack – his band name’s not quite as memorable as Dr. Teeth’s, but they could still play!

  3. Back in the game 500,

  4. 500. Song lyrics make it easier.

    • Well done Aphoristical – and I find my favourite lyrics in a song aren’t necessarily the official lyrics, but the brief spoken segues (like this one) into/out of guitar solos!

  5. 500! ✌

    • Now that’s an emoji-worthy score, nicely done Sarca!
      And after my attempt at a theme-logo last week, I have even more admiration & respect for your graphic design skills 🙂

  6. Being attuned to death netted 400 this week.

  7. 500 for me too! Think you might have made that a wee bit too easy.

  8. 500. At f’ckin last.

  9. 500. Looking forward to this week.

  10. I’ll take for the first time ever 500!

  11. ..and I would win 500 points…..da da da da….

  12. 500 up! Haha that one was easy, no pee test required Deke!

  13. A lowly 200 this time around!

  14. Jenn permalink

    300 for me! Adult beginner guitar lessons, while not actually causing one to become good at guitar playing, do serve a purpose after all, and it is all trivia based.

  15. Even if I was in haze, purple or otherwise, this would have been an easy 500 for me. Looking forward to reading some posts on this artists, Geoff.

    I should also note that I got 300 on the Pink Floyd post, which is embarrassing because they’re my second favorite artist.

  16. 500! Move over, Rover

  17. 500 for me – my parents would have disowned me if I’d got any less.

  18. 400. I should have been more confident at 500!

  19. 500 for the week
