Ready for Quiz #5?

To quote Paul Romanuk, the drive for 5 has arrived!

.

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!

  1. 500 disturbing points

  2. 500. I rewrote the lyrics of one of their hits for a work talent quest last month.

    • So these lads were fresh in your mind – I’d be interested in seeing the lyric rewrite!

      • It’s completely full of in-jokes and would make no sense out of the context of work. It was called PandaWall.

  3. I am ashamed to admit I knew enough here to get 500 points.

  4. 500. But I lived in Manchester for years.

    • Well played Jimmy – and I’m envious that you lived there with so many great Mancunian bands!

  5. 300 points

  6. Back in the 500 club at last.

  7. 400 for me as I only knew the other two members not the Paul’s.

  8. 5OOpoints……Do You Know What I Mean…..YEAH YEAH

  9. 300 for me today.

    500. But you probably guessed I would definitely maybe get this one on the first clue.

  11. Is it my imaginasheeeeeuuun, or did I just win 500 points?

  12. Not a fan but I somehow managed to get 500 anyway.

  13. 500 ’cause I love ’em, me.

  14. Wow, I guessed right…at 500! The Manchester and date did it…

  15. Zack permalink

    400

  16. Back on the 500 wagon!

  17. 500 for Mika, 300 for me.

  18. 500. Bunch of arses!

    • I don’t disagree!
      Surprisingly, it’s one of those artists I have no problem separating the artist from the art though

  19. 500! Yeah, yeah! I’ve got to put them on now 🙂

  20. 300 for a band I really don’t know much about
