Ready for Quiz #19?

This is a Call!

.

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!

    300 please

  2. 500. The bonus clue put me on the right track.

  3. 500 for me thank you. This band I liked, his most famous band, I did not.

  4. Zack permalink

    500! I love those early albums.

  5. 300 today.

  6. 500 as I will stick round. I had bought the debut to see just what the hell the drummer was doing singing and playing guitar which was impressive as well as having about 4 singles come off this release.

    • I think he might have played all the parts except for one rhythm guitar track – I admire that Do-It-Yourself approach!
      And speaking of admirable, I’m a fan of perfect scores too, Deke!

  7. This is a call for my 500 Points please.

    • Excellent bounce back week, Steve – you’ll learn to fly back to the top of the leaderboard with weeks like this!

    500. I wouldn’t call myself a fan but I also don’t hate this band. I actually saw them live many moons ago on one of their first few swings through Toronto and I remember it being one of the first shows where I saw ear plugs being sold at the door.

  9. 400 points for me please.

  10. 400 well that’s what I deserve

  11. 400 please.

  12. 500 each – the best the best the best – for Mika and me.

  13. 500! People played their debut and Jagged Little Pill non-stop during my first year of college!

  14. 500 points this week, please. I’m not much of a fan of the band, but those first two albums were big favourites.

  15. I’ll stick around for a 500!

  16. I’ll take an easy peasy 500, thank you kindly!

  17. 400 points for me please! I respect Dave Grohl as a musician and he’s a nice guy, but I don’t get this band at all! They never vibed with me. I only have a soft spot for the drummer because he was featured in the Queen + Adam Lambert documentary.

  18. Paul permalink

    400 please

  19. Holen permalink

    500. That album is on the 1001?
