Ready for Quiz #13?

It won’t be wrong!


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 #13
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points…………………American band, formed in 1964. Though several musicians that played in the group went on to successful solo careers, the Rickenbacker-playing Roger McGuinn was this band’s only constant member.






400 points……………….They have a quintet of albums on the 1001 list: Mr. Tambourine Man (1965), Fifth Dimension (1966), Younger Than Yesterday (1967), The Notorious ______ Brothers (1968), and Sweetheart of the Rodeo (1968)






300 points……………………Former members include David Crosby, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons. And given it was the 1960s, their avian band name naturally featured an intentional spelling error






200 points………………..According to Peter Griffin, this is the word

Untitled presentation (13)






100 points………………..The artist is The B______s





Answer: بيردس

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!

  1. 500 soaring points.

  2. 500, been writing about Emmylou Harris this week, who was discovered by one former member and collaborated with another.

    500. You had me at Rickenbacker…

  4. Harrison permalink

    100 please, never even heard of them

  5. 400. I remember them being the most mentioned band in the 1001.

  6. Zack permalink


  7. 500 chyrps. The guitarist was also namechecked in the autobiographical lyrics of Creeque Alley by The Mamas & the Papas.
    Love the Peter Griffin clue 🙂

  8. 500 points for Mr Tambourine Man!

  9. 400 points. The Bob Dylan reference was the key to unlocking the answer for me because I’ve never listened to the band’s albums.

  10. Hey Mr 500 Points! I’m having a jingle jangle morning.

  11. 300 for me. Not that familiar with them.

  12. 500 today. I had it at the Rickenbacker.

  13. Flying high at 500

  14. 400 for Mika, 300 for me, copious swearing from both of us

    • I’m pleased, despite the profanity, points were still earned & the word ‘copious’ made a cameo!

  15. It’s my turn, turn, turn for 500!

    • Excellent work, Kevin – and a silver lining of no new baseball? I’ve been enjoying the vintage Jays games, they’re now in the 1992 world series.
      They’ve run into a good pitcher in Tom Glavine but I have a feeling they’ll have a strong game 2!

  16. 400 please!

  17. 500 points please.

    • Excellent work, Adela!
      I made the spreadsheet the other day – but I promise the points will be added next week!
