Ready for Quiz #22?

Cool cool cool!


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. Damn it. Just 200.

    Funny but true story. I got this one on the first hint and I’m not sure I’ve ever listened to a single one of their albums and probably couldn’t name a song. 500 for me.

  3. 500 Breaking the law!

  4. Wavered between answers for a few moments – that ‘other’ Birmingham heavy mob ruled for a bit – but came down with the points. 500.

    • I hadn’t realized they were from the same town – a quick search revealed the other lads formed in 1968, and also had an album in 1980.
      Luckily for me, it appears that album wasn’t named after a UK-produced metal alloy, or that question would have been far too ambiguous, nice work on the 500 Bruce!

    I got 400 this week. I’m moving up that list. Woo Hoo!

  6. 500 for me… seems like the 1001 book is finally coming round to my way of thinking!

  7. 500 for the Ol Metal Buzzard from Bay! Thank God!

  8. Easy peasy. 500.

  9. Hahaha my era’ish 500 for me…

    I do not however have any of their music????

  10. Rockin’ the 500!!! Hurrah!

  11. I’m actually rather proud of the spectacular way the wheels fell of this week. A resounding zero from the swedish jury.

    • There was a hockey player (Erik Karlsson) who said something like that a few weeks ago – if you’re going to lose, it’s in a way better to lose big, and bounce back next time.
      Top marks for honesty Kid Slender!

  12. 500 easy, but only ‘cos I have that record. Surprised they only have one on the list?

    • Well played Aaron!
      Yes just the one – but so far they’re one for one in my books!

      • I can’t figure how some bands who maybe shouldn’t have multiples get multiples, but bands who should have multiples don’t get multiples?

        And that sentence (above) uses the word multiples 4 times – multiple times!

      • The more multiple the merrier!

  13. 100 here.

  14. 500! Back on track!

  15. 500 for me again. I am supreme.

  16. 100. I pretty much know them by name only.

  17. 400 for the week
