Ready for Quiz #35?

I want to be the (one) with the most cake!


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 #35
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..American band with a pair of albums on the 1001 list: Live Through This (1994) and Celebrity Skin (1998)






400 points……………….The latter featured Canadian (CanCon!) bassist Melissa Auf der Maur, who also provided stellar backup vocals on tracks like Malibu, Awful, and the title track.

And incidentally, Celebrity Skin‘s “Oh make me over” opening lyric is surely one of the strongest track/album opening lines of the 90s!






300 points……………………The group’s lead singer, Courtney Love, also appeared in multiple films in the late 90s, including an Andy Kaufman biopic, Man on The Moon (1999), as well as winning several awards for her performance in The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996)






200 points………………..One-word, monosyllabic band name:






100 points………………..The artist is H_____




Answer:  فرقة كورتني لوف

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!


Verbalize the Positive

I always enjoy when songs I like play key roles in films.

In this group’s case, I enjoyed how the song Doll Parts was featured prominently in Juno & Celebrity Skin was the closing credits tune in Captain Marvel!
