Ready for Quiz #32?

Great Scott!

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!

Thanks for playing!

Verbalize the Positive

I enjoy that in order for google translate to work, I had to type an ‘ed’ (thus making it the Canadian pronunciation) after each of the first 2 letters!

  1. 200. I love these funny and accurate descriptions! They also save me from scoring zero!

  2. 500. Haven’t seen the movie for years but figured the beards would work out.

  4. 300, I’ve always loved that fact!

  5. 400, not seen the film or heard that song.

  6. 400. that first clue did my head in!

    • There was a bit of time travel in that first clue – 2018 quiz referencing a 1990 song/movie made to sound like 1885!

  7. 500 for me!! I love the those movies and the band.

  8. 400. Although I almost wished I’d got it on the next clue, such is my fondness for that awesome piece of trivia.

  16. 500! Got it with the first 6 words! Love the band and the BTTF movies!
