Ready for Quiz #20?

Here I go, Playing the (quiz) again!!

.

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!

  1. 500 smackers Mr. Stephen!

  2. Not hugely popular Downunder, but managed to raise 400 points. Thanks Geoff.

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me this week. I don’t know me enough Kid Rock apparently.

  4. Zack permalink

    Only 400. I don’t listen to enough Kid Rock to be able to fill in the blanks.

  5. 500. Thanks to WWE

  6. It’s 300 for me this week.

  7. Sorry no clue! Man, there are a lot of artists I don’t know about it, lol! I had fun either way. Thanks for the quiz, Geoff!

  8. I will second kingcrimsonprog with 500 points thanks to the Undertaker. I suspect I’ll get 500 again if Limp Bizkit ever winds up here somehow. 400 for Mika.

    🎶workin’ on my night cheese🎶

  9. 400 I go blank at the mention of Kid Rock every time they are mentioned.

  10. 500. I knew he was born in Michigan.

  11. 400. No Kid Rock for this guy.

  12. 400 please Geoff.

  13. 400 for me. I have it between 2 Detroiters on the first clue, but couldn’t say for sure until the next clue.

  14. 400, please.

  15. Harrison permalink

    This one was a little late posting for me, and I subsequently forgot about it. But you can bet I got 400 points, belated as they are.
