Ready for Quiz #16?

I won’t show you twice!

.

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 #16
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..American band, formed in California. They released their debut album in 2002 (which has gone on to sell 10+ million copies since then).

Not meaning to sound “so condescending, unnecessarily critical” but considering their relative name recognition, The “Other Guys” in this group include Jesse Carmichael, James Valentine, Matt Flynn, PJ Morton, and Sam Farrar.

.

.

.

.

.

400 points……………….Some of their albums include It Won’t Be Soon Before Long (2007), Overexposed (2012), and Jordi (2021).

And at the risk of being the most obscure/niche clue to date, the first part of the band name is the same as the (appropriately-numbered) season one episode of Ren & Stimpy pictured below:

.

.

.

300 points……………………The aforementioned 2002 debut album, featuring the hits Harder to Breathe / This Love / She Will Be Loved, was named Songs About Jane

.

.

.

.

200 points………………..And the lead singer, Adam Levine, also claimed (through song) to have Moves Like the lead singer of the Rolling Stones

100 points………………..The artist is M_________ 5

      • I remember that was the greatest day of much music programming – a Ren & Stimpy-a-thon & Weird Al taking over much with ALTV, what an event!

  6. 300 due to some BNL knowledge. Completely stumped until then.
