Ready for Quiz #33?

It’s time!

.

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 – I love the Iha sung song on their double album.

    • Oh, and Muzzle is one of my favourites too. Although I don’t really believe him when he thinks he’s ordinary and just like everyone – he seems a little oddball….

      • I hadn’t thought about that – you’re absolutely right, I don’t remember him being accused of being overly modest in interviews!

    500. I used to have Siamese Dream on CD back in the day. Not a bad album as I recall.

  3. 500 each for Mika and me.

  4. 300 because, well there is no reason.

  5. 400, I grew up hearing my dad’s copy of that album!

  6. Funny how you can know members of a band, but not really know their music.
    500 points of Funny please Geoff.

    • I added the name part of the clue at the last minute – I’m pleased that helped you earn the 500 Bruce!

  7. 500 for me but it could have easily been Zero

  8. 400 for me which is good cause I never got into this band.

  9. 500 Halloween Treats please!

  10. 300. I find the lead guy’s interviews more interesting than his music.

  11. Zack permalink

    500. They were one of my favorite bands growing up.

  12. 400 points is the best I could do

  13. 500 for me too.

  14. 500 for me Today!
