Ready for Quiz #46?

Keep on Truckin’!


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!

Always nice to be able to include Peter Gallagher in a visual clue!

  1. Yes 500 at last again…

  2. 500. I have never seen a CD copy of American Beauty.

  3. 400, due to Freaks And Geeks

  4. 500 this week (though I especially appreciate the ice-cream-themed 300 clue)!

  5. Yuk! 400 again please.

    I love the artwork but they disappoint me so much! They should sound immense and cosmic, not like a C+W bar band!

  6. 500 for me as I actually knew one of the drummers names.

  7. Fellow blogging pal Jeff Japp from Cali loves these guys. He has seen them so many times I guess he’s a Deadhead! lol So because of Mr Japps blog “I will get by with 500 points and I will survive!”

  8. 300 today. I knew the drummer’s name but couldn’t remember which band.

  9. Zack permalink

    500, but I wish it was less. I really don’t like these guys.

    • Those are good weeks though, Zack – when you get a perfect score despite spending as little time as possible actually listening to the group!

    • Hear, hear! I’m with you Zack.

  10. I’m gratefully well versed in this band’s history so I’m good for 500!

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    500. But it was your bonus hint at the beginning that tipped me off.

    • I”m pleased it helped, JP!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        It did for sure. I think a friend of mine put that one track on a mixed tape for me once. Probably why it stuck out,

  12. Not familiar with The Rhythm Devils unfortunately so 400 will have to suffice.

  13. Back in the 500 column!

  14. 500 please!

  15. 500 like a Doo Dah Man

  16. 400 for Mika, 300 for me.

  17. Yikes. As a drummer I hang my head in shame. 300 points – thanks goodness for ice cream 🙂

  18. Harrison permalink

    300 please

  19. 400 this time.
