Ready for Quiz #39?

You’re gonna go far!

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!

If you saw the name ‘Noodles’ in the first clue & thought of the cameraman from UHF – we’ll be friends forever!

    200 please

  2. 500, but not really a fan.

  3. 0 and yes that’s the truth…

    • Good news Neil – your Wayne’s World 1 & 2 viewings will start paying off sooner rather than later!

  4. 200. Guitarists with humorous nicknames? I knew it was going to be a tough week.

    • Not to worry Kid Slender – I anticipate next week will be less tough & I don’t believe the guitar player will have a humourous stage name!

  5. 400… is this band seriously in the list?

  6. Zack permalink

    500. I just saw these guys live a few months ago.

  7. Eek. Was bouncing in the wrong direction. 200 points finally.

  8. jprobichaud permalink

    500. I actually saw this band live for the first time this year and though I had my misgivings, really enjoyed their set.

  9. 200 for me.

  10. 400, pretty fly for a Welsh guy.

  11. Send me 500 Noodle bowls Geoff!

  12. 500! Wore their shirt almost everyday in high school. And, yes I did think of Noodles from UHF too!

  13. 500 each for me and Mika.
