Ready for Quiz #47?

Nobody’s gonna slow me you down!


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!

Got to see these dudez with my friend Andy a few years ago in Montreal – what a show!

  1. That first clue is a corker! Pop the cork for me to the tune of an electric 500 please!

  2. jprobichaud permalink

    You had me at Australian. 500.

  3. A motorway to the underworld! 500

  4. 500. I recon the first 2-3 words are enough for most folk to get this one.

  5. Aussie – rock band – 1970s – 500 points please!
    Hells bells… love the rest of the clues. Excellent quizmastering as always 😎

  6. Harrison permalink

    500 please

  7. Zack permalink

    500. Great clues!

  8. 500 for me!! If it was any less, I should never play these games!!

  9. 500 for me today.

  10. Paul permalink

    500 ! – funny how when you know the band all the clues are pretty easy! 🙂

  11. 500 please. I hear they’re quite good.

    • I gather some people tend to enjoy their music from time to time, Joe!

      • Never been that fussed on the whole ‘music’ thing Geoff, its just not my bag.

  12. Hopefully someday you and the family will be on the Highway to Thunder Bay! 500 smackers Sir!

  13. 500 but that first clue made me think Maybe it’s because the coffee had not kicked in yet

  14. Hey Stephen! Paid my dues! Playin’ in a guessing game! 500 points please

  15. 500 each for me and Mika.

  16. If I didn’t get 500 on this one, I’d have to turn in about 8 different music fan cards. Let’s goooo!

  17. 500 points please! This was a no brainer for me. An Australian band formed in 1973? Too easy. This band became my saving grace for 2020, so I did a lot of research on them during the early stages of the pandemic.

  18. I’d be in all sorts of trouble if I didn’t earn a 500!

    • Your ‘nothing for me this week’ comment on the week of John’s ‘Power Up’ new releases post remains one of my favourites!
