Ready for Quiz #44?

If you thought last week’s quiz was challenging, this week’s might be Twice As Hard!


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!

Verbalize the Positive

This group continues the tradition of bands with good albums on the 1001 list with intentional animal misspellings (Beatles, Byrds, Monkees, this band…)!

  1. 500. I barely know any of their songs though.

  2. 500 each for me and Mika. We did not find this quiz hard to handle.

    • and with both earning perfect scores, no need to be Jealous Again of either earning a higher score!

  3. Could I ever have been so blind? Nope 500 points please for the downtown Money wasters who have spent 30 years by my side

  4. 500 for me…you had me at Georgia and Brothers. They went to a rival high school where I lived so it would’ve been embarrassing to miss this one.

  5. 300 for me today.

  6. Harrison permalink

    500 please, thanks to a recent reissue

  7. Shake That Moneymaker for 500 smackers while I Stare It Cold!

  8. Zack permalink

    Luckily for me, the only album I know by this band was featured in the first clue. 500 for me.

  10. Yay, got it on the debut title. 500 dark corvi for me 🙂

  11. 500 and I have only heard the hits

  12. 200 points please! “Hard to Handle” was performed on ‘American Idol’ lol!

  13. 500 please Geoff. It’s not a popular view but I think they peaked first time out of the gate.

  14. Paul permalink

    Got it on the 500 one but loved the murderly 400 clue a d the 300 picture clue 😀

  15. An easy 500 for a change!
