Ready for Quiz #47?



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 #47
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..American band, formed in Boston, featuring a pair of guitarists, one named Brad Whitford…






400 points………………..and another named Joe Perry, who, following their performance of Dude (Looks Like a Lady) in Wayne’s World 2, nailed the delivery of his line, “Hey thanks a lot, we’ll see you inside”






300 points……………….They have a trio of Amazing albums on the 1001 list: Toys in the Attic, Rocks, and Pump 






200 points………………One word, two-part band name: The first part is a prefix for flight (also a peanut-free chocolate bar), the second part is a common English surname (also the suffix for an specialized occupation, such as a person that fixes locks).

Or, if you remove the plural, it is also the solution to this photo puzzle:







100 points………………..The artist is A_______________






Answer: إيروسميث
