Ready for Quiz #16?

Away we go!


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!

Here’s to prolific artists like these lads, who are capable of releasing so much quality in so little time!

  1. I know Stu as this Bass player as when the Current River Band was learning tunes we had to fill our sets out as we ran short.
    This bands tunes were easy to learn so STU was my go to as me and Tbone would joke about it…

  2. 400 this week amazingly but I missed last week how did that happen?

  3. 400 for me.

  4. 500. They’re massive in Sweden. Seriously – Beatles and Stones popular.

  5. 500 and very happy to be so fortunate.

  6. Haven’t listened to their albums, I do know the name of the singer. So 300 points

    • And based on that 300 clue, the singer didn’t leave many jobs for the others to do – nice work Chris!

  7. My 500 streak continues!

  8. “I know who the bass player’s name” is probably a good measure of how well you know/like a band.

  9. Zack permalink

    400. I almost had 500, but couldn’t place Stu Cook.

    • NIce work Zack – and for me, the bassist names are usually the hardest to remember!

      • Zack permalink

        It was somewhat familiar. Don’t ask me about the drummer though.

  10. 400 again. Too many weeks since a 500.

  11. 400 for me!

  12. Back to back 500s!

  13. 500. Cuurently my daughter’s favourite band!

  14. 400 today.

  15. jprobichaud permalink

    I actually scored a 500 this week!

  16. 500! Love this band

  17. 400, I still haven’t found more than 3 tracks of theirs I really, really like. (ducks behind wall for safety)

    • This is a safe place to not adore the group – I only really started to warm up to them once I realized how well the songs work as acoustic sing-a-longs!

  18. 400 each for Mika and me.
