Ready for Quiz #22?

Ready to Start!

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!

  1. 500. First decade of 21st century was good for Canadian music.

    • Absolutely – Canadian music’s been selling really well over the last 10 years too, I’m just more interested in the actual music from that first decade!

  2. Harrison permalink

    200 please

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Some excellent Can Con here. I saw them open for U2 in 2005.

  4. Oh dear 100 points, I needed the 200 question for it all to make sense prior to that it was Man Flame, god help us all from my brain tonight

  5. 300. More like Can’tCon. I know nothing about this band. Which is fine by me!

  6. 500! I LOVE this band, and they were one of the first “new” bands that I got into as a young music fan! For many years, I used to listen to ‘The Suburbs’ in the car with my mum… (And, of course, David adored them!)

  7. 200 for me as I had no idea. On the Wayne’s World clue, I got the Fire part but couldn’t remember the guys name, no other clue helped until Pac-Man. Tough one as I know nothing about this band…I mean nothing.

    • It’s funny, some Canadian acts (like Barenaked Ladies / Rush) are likely even bigger outside of Canada than they are at home. I thought these guys might be on that list too but perhaps not!

  8. Reeeeaally weird coincidence. Was just reading about this band on Thursday. 500 with luck and some good clues!

  9. My brother loves this band. By the way, you can reach me at 1-800-dEKE-500
    lol

    • If I can figure out how to send the points by phone, look for them there, Deke – excellent work!

  10. Zack permalink

    500. I haven’t watched Wayne’s World in years. I still remember quite a lot about it though.

    • I’m pleased the film knowledge (or I guess more importantly, knowledge retention from the film) paid off again today, Zack!

  11. Scored 500! But not because I know anything about the band. I’ve just seen Wayne’s World 500 times!

  12. I had a lucky guess on the CanCon. 500 today.

  13. Yikes. Thank goodness for the Pac-Man clue… 200 points please.

  14. Ah yes, one of my favourite bands, Pacman Emoji. 500 points each for me and Mika. Saw them in Calgary two years ago maybe?

    • Can’t believe I missed that show – a shame Pacman Emoji had to postpone this year’s tour too!

  15. I demand 300 points!
