Ready for Quiz #47?

Glad to hear it!


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. An easy 500! (For once)

  2. jprobichaud permalink

    Would you believe… 500? I had to stop and think hard about it though. Then, it came to me like a ton of bricks. I’ve got lots of jokes I could drop here about said drummer but I don’t want to give things away…

    • Which is appreciated – as is the score & Get smart reference at the beginning!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha. K. I’ll keep myself under the cone of silence.

  3. 400. I’m really proud of myself.😁

  4. 500. Didn’t know that trivia but figured out a drummer with a Dutch sounding name.

  5. Zack permalink

    500. Too Easy.

  6. 500 and I have to thank my wife’s nephews who made me take them to a gig.

  7. Same strategy as Aphoristical, yielding the same score.

  8. 500! I’m so chuffed. I googled them two days ago after a heated “Stranger Things” related debate. Otherwise it would have been a big fat O. Result!

    • Haha, well timed google search Kid Slender!
      And post-script, I hope the google results helped your side in the debate!

  9. 500 points. As a Dane, I should know this!

  10. 500 smackers Geoff as Nothing Else Matters!

  11. 400 for me this week!

  12. Another lowly 100.

  13. Easy Peasy 500-sy!

  14. 500 without beaking a sweat (or chewing with my mouth open).

  15. Rachelle permalink


  16. 500! ✌

  17. 400. I don’t know from drummers unless they have one arm.

  18. Blah. Only 400. I forgot he is Danish. Ya know, I’m OK with forgetting something about him.

  19. 500 points. I heard that he could have been a top professional tennis player.

  20. jofrommontreal permalink

    300! I had never heard about the tennis story.

  21. 500 for me. I am awesome.

  22. Yay, my first 500!

  23. 500 for the week. As of the 300 point question they sure did a great job on the Anthem that night.

    • Well played – and I’m pleased you remember their version of the anthem, I really enjoyed the guitar harmonies!

  24. jofrommontreal permalink

    300. An important band in my teenage years. Can’t believe I never heard about that 500 pts hint story!

    • And I think I only knew that story because I played in a band with a couple die-hard fans, I have them to thank for much of my early metal education!
