Ready for Quiz #12?

To borrow a Rob Schneider line, tu peux le faire!


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!

Verbalize the Positive

Any band who is cited as an influence by Radiohead is A-OK in my books!

  1. Not sure if I Can guess this one, but Halleluwah, 500 points.

  2. Harrison permalink

    200 s’il vous plaît monsieur.

    • bien fait Harrison!

      • Zack permalink

        400 points. Which is amazing considering I’ve never heard of this band.

      • I’d say that would qualify as amazing indeed, nice work!

      • Zack permalink

        400 points. Which is amazing considering I’ve never heard of this band.
        Not sure why this is posted as a reply. Whoops!

  3. 500 (apparently my obsessive love of David Bowie’s Berlin era comes in use for purposes other than my generally obsessive love of David Bowie)!

  4. 500. Much as I tried I never really “got” them.

  5. 300 this week. Not all that familiar with them, but I am aware of that album.

  6. Father Cannot Yell. But if he could, he’d bellow “Ein halbes Tausend, bitte!”

    Einfach heute.

  7. 400 for me. Thanks to watching Speed yesterday. It was on, I stopped and next thing I know, two hours passed.

  8. 100 points =Gah!
    I knew I was in trouble this week after scoring 500 last week!
    That ain’t no ol Cheap Trick

  9. Got it at 400. Speed’s my jam.

  10. 400! Oof a tricky one tho, I only got it because I have committed everything Keanu Reeves has ever said to memory

  11. 300. My citric first idea proved not go good by question 3

  12. jprobichaud permalink

    Cinq cent pour moi. (Oops, wrong lingo.)

  13. A lowly 200.

  14. 500 and those hours huddled over Copes Kraurock book have paid of, my Waynes World viewing however was useless this week.

    • I believe I did Kraftwerk last year – but I haven’t done Tangerine dream or Neu! yet (both have albums on the 1001) so that book may prove to be useful again!

  15. 400 for Mika. 200 for me because I didn’t read the 300-point question carefully.

  16. 200 today.

  17. 500 for me. I didn’t know the bassist’s name, but the year and the genre tipped me.

  18. Am I too late to claim a cool 500 here?
