Ready for Quiz #32?

Shall we?


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!

Verbalize the Positive

A tip of the hat to my metal friends who scored 500 points before they even finished reading the first clue!

From → Uncategorized

  1. 300. I should have had it at 500. *le sigh* 🙂

  2. 100, and that was a lucky guess. It’s a matter of principle with me to not listen to bands with illustrated mascots.

  3. 400. I couldn’t remember the dang things name until this clue.

  4. Zack permalink

    500! They’re my favorite of the Big 4 thrash metal groups.

  5. 500 for this Rattlehead!

    • I had a feeling you’d get Vic right away – nice work Deke!

      • Thats the thing a few bands in the 80’s had the mascot. The most famous of course “Eddie”
        So you did do your homework on these questions!
        Great stuff…..

      • Cheers Deke – I thought if I put ‘American’ band in the first clue, hopefully that would steer people away from Iron Maiden as a guess!

  6. Jordan Richardson permalink

    500 this time.

  7. 0!

    I’m just kidding. 500 🙂

    • If you’d gotten 0, something was either amiss with the clues on my part or a severe lack of coffee on your part Mike!

      • Oh, thanks for the reminder. I just got in from the morning walk, going to sit down and review…something…not sure what…and I need a coffee!

      • If you haven’t reviewed this group’s 1990 effort, I’ll be reviewing it later this week & we do have that ‘crossover’ logo!

      • I have not but I won’t be able to get to it in time! I will, however be able to provide you a quote. I shall email you.

      • Sounds good!

  8. 500! One band I can never play an entire album all the way through in one sitting (probably that’s just me experiencing this). Mind you, a song here and there is stellar stuff! Good luck to you in your review!

    • Those are my feelings exactly with The Chemical Brothers (a group I had on in the car yesterday) – my thanks Aaron, and congrats on the return to 500 this week!

      • Man, I’m lucky to get through an entire Chemical Brothers song, let alone an album. Good on you Geoff!

        Also, thanks! I was pretty stoked to add to my even 14,000… 😉

      • It was neat to see a few more people join the 10,000 club last week – you’re the first member of the 14,000 club so far!

      • I’d like to thank the Academy…

  9. Thanks to the monstrous doco of clue 3 band, I net 300 points.

  10. A sad 300 settling in here

  11. An easy 500 for me! I love this band to deth.

  12. 500 for me, because I’m def.

  13. jprobichaud permalink

    Not my cup of tea but 300, nonetheless.

  14. A measly 200…

  15. 300 for me, those first two clues were tough. Good to be tested though!

  16. 500! VERY curious how Sarca will do… She loves this band but I’m sure she doesn’t know who Vic is…

  17. YES! Got 500!! 👊

  18. 300! Yas!

  19. Bah, 300.

  20. 400 for the week

  21. 400! Haven’t heard them in a while
