Ready for Quiz #41?

Hey you, what do you see?!


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 #41
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points…………………American artist, born in Ohio in 1969, birth name Brian Warner. His / his band’s 1996 album, featuring the singles The Beautiful People & Tourniquet, is on the 1001 list…






400 points…………………and the album is named Antichrist Superstar.

Although he is known for his shock-rock / controversial performances, he is inevitably quite articulate in interviews, such as the Bowling for Columbine scene pictured below:

    300 please

  2. 300, well because thats what I got.

  3. 500, my kinda band/artist

  4. 500, don’t think I know any of his songs though.

    • I can’t say I’ve heard many (if any) in the last 20 years, but he’s got some strong mid/late 90s tracks!

  5. Don’t know how I missed two weeks of these. But at least I’m back on the map with 500 today.

  6. Wowzers! Back to some respectability with 500!

    • Perhaps with the birthday, Deke, you’re another year older & wiser – well played!

      • BAHAHAHA….Older for sure, wiser still questionable!!
        Cheers Geoff

  7. 500 for me! I like some of his stuff when I’m in the mood to blast it.

  8. This Is The New Score. 500 please.

  9. I am not quite sure how I know this, but 500! (Though, I love your 300 clue most of all!)

    500. I grew up on Antichrist Superstar.

  11. 500! That Bowling for Columbine clip really gained my respect in him.

  12. 500! I have Sarah’s copy of Big Shiney Tunes #2 to thank!

  13. jprobichaud permalink

    500 for me. He was pretty ubiquitous back when I was in university.

  14. 500. Fun fact. We used to file this artist under the FIRST name rather than last, because it was originally a band name, while he went by the name Mr.

  15. I’ll take a 300 this week.

  16. 500 please. On a decent max run at the moment 🙂

  17. 500 each for Mika and me.

  18. 500 please. I’ve seen his penis.

  19. 50 because a guy I knew in college was very into this guy and I heard about it all the time

  20. Sorry, 500, not 50.
