Ready for Quiz #9?

That’s the Way!


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 #9
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..English band, formed in London in 1968, critically acclaimed, though apparently not for all tastes…







400 points………………..5 of their first 6 studio albums are on the 1001 albums list (curiously, their 1973 effort, Houses of the Holy, did not make the cut)






300 points……………….On most ‘Best Guitarist Ever’ lists, chances are, Jimi Hendrix and this band’s Jimmy will be battling it out near/at the top






200 points………………..Their frequently-school-dance-ending, 8-minute epic was also referenced in the 1992 film pictured above , “No Stairway, denied!”






100 points………………..The artist is L____ Z____________

Thanks for playing!


Verbalize the Positive

One of those artists where my favourite album of theirs can change by the day, a nice problem to have!


From → Uncategorized

  1. 500, I think I quoted that line recently. Houses of the Holy is my favourite. They weren’t actually particularly acclaimed when they first appeared, but they sure are in retrospect (and deservedly so).

    • I remember quite enjoying seeing that quote appear in your post! I still haven’t fully warmed up to ‘the crunge’ but apart from that, it is terrific

      • ‘The Crunge’ is like a James Brown homage – Jones and Bonham were big fans. It’s funny when Plant starts talking about The Bridge.

      • that confounded bridge!

  2. Harrison permalink

    400 please.

    You sneaky, that little “That’s the Way!” above the rules had me thinking of the band, but I haven’t seen that movie. I think I’ll pay more attention to those lines for the other quizzes to come

    • Haha, you found my bonus clue! That line is often just an adjective/”let’s go!” type of expression but from time to time there will be a helpful hint too

  3. A movie quote I knew…. Hurrah!
    500 please Mr Music.

  4. This is going to go down like a heavy balloon 500 please. Loved seeing a Wayne’s World quote with my morning coffee. Does anyone remember laughter?

    • When I think of this artist, Wayne’s observation is what always comes to mind for me – my thanks Steve, well played!

  5. 400. Which is odd. As I love Wayne’s World.

  6. 400 this week, Geoff.

  7. Zack permalink

    400. It’s been a while since I saw Wayne’s World.

    • A rewatch is never a bad move!

      • Zack permalink

        My boss mentioned the line about Frampton Comes Alive being issued to everyone in the suburbs yesterday. It’s been blasting from the past.

  8. 500 for me. Party time, excellent!

  9. Paul permalink

    400 for me. Have missed some weeks recently but still fun

  10. 500. One of my more inspired guesses.

  11. wdeod permalink

    400. I would have 500 but then I thought there was a food related clue in question 1 so changed my mind to another band. Then kicked myself when I read q2.

    • I suppose they advise students to go with their initial instinct on multiple choice – perhaps that’s good advice for these quizzes too!

  12. My 500 streak continues! A favourite line from a favourite film.

  13. from zero to hero..
    500 smackers fella!
    I’m not getting Trampled Underfoot like what happened last week when I only scored 100!

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    I scored top marks again this week. But to be honest, it was a guess because it’s been ages since I saw Wayne’s World. 500, it is.

  15. 300. I haven’t seen Wayne’s World for many years.

  16. Yes! A 500 holds onto the lead over Sarca!

  17. 400 for me, 300 for Mika

  18. 500 this week — that Wayne’s World clue saved me!

  19. Without Mike Meyers that first clue is the vaguest of clues, in order to do better at this quiz I have begun to watch Waynes World weekly. 500 points please.

    • Haha, such weekly viewings are bound to pay off as the year goes on!
      Well done with the score – and nice restraint on record buying during the month of February!

  20. I squeezed my lemon till the 500 points ran down my leg.

  21. 400. Oh the shame of it!!!

  22. Just got to this one, at 400. No idea if the points still count!
