Ready for Quiz #5?

Super!

.

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!

    500 please, from a nice guess, although seeing Topher Grace was a good confirmation

  2. 500 and so many memories, welcome to hell was banned in my friend Johns house, oh how he loved that band.

  3. 200. Black Metal and superhero movies look like my Achilles heels.

    • Not to worry, Graham – I don’t anticipate any more black metal or superhero clues in the near future!

  4. 500 please. Remember when it came out and everyone was talking about it. Golden days \m/

  5. Cheers to you too! My power amps are set to 500 points today…

    • As they should be!
      And I’m relieved – if you hadn’t got 500, something would have gone wrong with the clues!

    500. Still on a roll!

  7. 400 for me. Don’t know anything by them, but knew the Topher Grace role

  8. 500 Metal Points as these guys were always on the Pepsi Power Hour Thursdays at 4 on MM when the Power Hour ran for the well full hour.
    Plus in the opening credits of the PPH. You can see Crono stalking the stage..

  9. here’s the clip haha at the 5-second mark…

    • I’ve never seen someone head-butt their bass guitar!
      And who knew JD Roberts would go from the Power Hour to Fox News?

      • Cool to watch those clips even some old school commercials are in there. JD was a good interviewer on MM. He was smart enough to know that gig was not going to last forever.

  10. 500, a very nice selection indeed and I loved the clues.

    5 weeks already! Man I better warm up the BBQ because spring is coming.

    • Much appreciated, Mike – and some springtime BBQ sounds deelish!

      • You’re invited!

        Seriously if you’re ever passing through the Kincardine area in the summer, you must stop by for some BBQ.

        I’m trying to find a source for Wagyu beef but I think no matter what I have to go to Toronto to get it. Still searching!

      • I’d be happy to come for the good company, stay for the BBQ beef!

    400. Don’t really know a lot of metal, except for all the big boys of course. Luckily, I do watch superhero movies sometimes.

  12. 300 please!

  13. 400. With great comic book knowledge comes great responisbility.

  14. 300 each for me and Mika.

  15. 500 for me please Geoff. I gave my vinyls from this lot to HMO.

  16. It’s 400 for me this week.

    • Nice work, J! I put the spreadsheet together already – but I solemnly swear to add the points next week

      • I was a bit late to the party… I’ll try to attend early this weekend!

      • I believe it was Keith Richards that said, the later the greater!

  17. 400. I don’t think I’ve ever been this late in answering!
