Ready for Quiz #12?

You know it!

.

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!

Artist of the Week #12
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..When they play secret shows, this American band uses the alias, “Foxboro Hot Tubs”

.

.

.

.

.

400 points……………….Do you have the time? To listen to them whine? By purchasing their album, Dookie, it would appear that at least 20 million customers answered yes to both of the above

.

.

.

.

,

300 points…………………When in doubt, a clue with an accent aigus: Tré Cool is the drummer of this punk rock band (and Tré also performed their famous/infamous 1994 secret track, All By Myself, all by himself)

.

.

.

.

.

200 points…………………Speaking of Le Français, because the adjective in the band name does not fit under ‘BAGS’ (Beauty, Age, Goodness, Size), it would follow the noun, thus making the band name, en Français, Jour Vert

.

.

.

.

.

100 points………………..The artist is G____ D___

.

.

.

Answer: اليوم الأخضر

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!

  1. 400, that first clue was idiotic.

  2. 400, didn’t know their secret name

  3. 400 this week. Happy with that, cause I don’t know much about this band.

    • It’s true – the 400 score on a band that’s unfamiliar feels a lot better than the 400 score on a beloved band!

      • Seems like a tricky one in general… not seeing any 500s so far. Aaron hasn’t commented yet though!

      • One of my friends on Facebook picked up the lone 500 thus far (Andy) – though when we went to a trivia night at a local pub, we realized we were terrible teammates: we seem to have had almost the exact same life experiences, so we either both knew the answers, or we both were clueless!

  4. The 400p clue sounded familiar and my French is not what it used to be. Will settle for 100 points this week.

  5. 400. Interesting alias in the first clue. Now I want to know why they use that one.

    • I’m not sure what the etymology of the name is (nor the reason why weezer uses ‘goat punishment’ as theirs!) – I’m curious as well.
      Nice work on the 400!

  6. Give 400 high 5’s to this old Punk Rocker!
    HAHAHA….

    • I’ll send both the points and high 5’s up the Trans Canada Highway Deke!

      • By the way great first clue…u cannot make it that easy right? Plus I learned something today at RockSchool taught by a Mr Stephen!

      • Haha – I think if all the bloggers were to teach courses in their various music genres, we could put together a stellar RockSchool curriculum!

    400

  8. Yet another 400. Great first clue, though. One to week out the REAL fans!

    • Nicely done – and My thanks Bruce!
      I was worried the first clue might be a bit arcane (thanks for that word) but fortunately, at least one participant has earned the 500 so far!

  9. 400 this week, bud. A *real* toughy of a first clue — nice one!
    Milo.

  10. 200 today. Mais seulement à cause du français.

  11. 400 this time!

  12. A respectable 400 this week. I’m a fan but not an expert.

  13. I’m with the crowd, 400 for me! Happy Spring, Geoff!

    And yes, I do have the time to listen to you whine, if you need me to!

    • A fine crowd to be a part of – and much appreciate d Mike, though I imagine there’s very little whining at the Ladano’s house this morning after (yet another) Leafs win!

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Loved that hidden track on Dookie. Très cool, absolument.

    • “and did I mention….” that’s a stellar score JP, only the second 500 of the day thus far!

  15. 400. I think I could easily cut and paste everyone else comments on this /them.

  16. 400 each for me and Mika.

  17. It’s 400 for me!

  18. Another 400 please Geoff.

  19. 500! Again, bloody hell am I on a roll now? I guess, I’ll stuff it all up next week!

  20. 400 this week

  21. Haha 500. EASY.

    Somehow I missed this one, so thanks to Sarca for reminding me!
