Ready for Quiz #3?

Third time’s the charm!

.

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, 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

In a somewhat surprise example of ‘you never know who you’re going to influence,” Rivers Cuomo has (favourably) name-checked these guys in a couple of weezer tunes!

  1. Damn 400, I should pay more attention to band members names it seems

  2. jprobichaud permalink

    400! I’m obviously more excited than Neil was at getting this one at the second clue.

    The movie in question is a classic. I defy anyone to argue this point with me.

  3. 400. I like that I got it with Mononymous

  4. Zack permalink

    500!
    I feel like I have to yell it!

  5. 500! I’m on a roll!

  6. 400 points worth of lucky guesses. Mononymous indeed!

  7. 200. Too many 90s references for me.

  8. 400! Didn’t know the band member names, but the 400 clue made it easy for me.

  9. 300. Don’t know the music but I remember the shows.

  10. 500…In A Gadda Da Vida on the Less Than Zero soundtrack was the cover song these guys did and the only track of theres I owned at the time on cassette tape…..

    • I just looked it up Deke – it looks like they shortened it a little from the 17-minute original!

      • Yeah it was a rippin good version as me and Tbone cruised around wit that blaring trying to look “street” haha

  11. 500…and like Deke also the only song of theirs I owned on tape.

  12. Haha 500 and easy one! Woo! \m/ \m/

    • I remember you were a fan of these guys!

      • Oh yes. Though I have to listen to them by myself in the car – my lovely wife won’t let me share their music with her. 🙂

        This, too, is a timely band to select, given recent news. Good luck with their album(s) from the list!

      • William mentioned that too – I can’t take credit for the timing, I was topical by accident!

  13. 400 for Mika. 300 for me

  14. 500! \\m// Kerry Emm Effin’ King!

  15. 400 for me! 🤘

  16. 500 for me (makes scary face).

  17. EASY! 500 points!
    I’m joining your quiz for the 1st time and i guess it’s easy because I know and love them but try and join in all your quiz’s from now on, OK?

  18. Ouch 200. You got me with some really tough clues this time Geoff

  19. 300, and only thanks to Buffy.

  20. 400, and only thanks to Buffy the movie!
