Very cool. I like the challenge!! Its Grateful Dead, by the way.

Is the picture supposed to be cut off on the side? For example, is there anything to the right of "20" in the bottom corner? It looks like there might be more image that's not onscreen...

nine inch nails not ninch inch nails

I thought this quiz was done before, if I'm not mistaken
Mar 4th, 2010 at 16:50 GMT
You are not mistaken- it's been done. Also, it's more an advertisement for Virgin than a quiz.
Mar 4th, 2010 at 17:01 GMT
ya part of this picture is missing
Mar 4th, 2010 at 17:18 GMT
Scroll your screen to the right to see the rest of the picture... I didn't want to shrink down the image as it would lose quality. Sorry if it's been done before... I haven't played all 60,000 games! Getting there, though! I searched and didn't see anything like this one though (there was one but no picture). Thanks for playing!

I liked this when I first saw it a few years ago, but I have to admit, I don't think it makes a good Sporcle quiz. I don't think Virgin has ever released an actual answer sheet and so many things here are open to interpretation.
Mar 5th, 2010 at 09:43 GMT
I already made this quiz dammit!
Mar 5th, 2010 at 13:36 GMT
I don't see a single Heart in the whole thing! And The Bee Gees? The Buggles? How are they represented? Also, I always thought the girls running in the back were The Go-Gos given their boots and outfits (is that what was marked as The Dixie Chicks?)
Mar 5th, 2010 at 13:55 GMT
@Oddish: The "heart" is a heart shaped pendant to the right of the goldfish. The Bee Gees is the "BGG" on the wall beside the girls ("B and two G's"). The girls... yes, the Dixie Chicks but I agree Go-Gos should also apply and I'll update that. The buggles... don't know. Maybe there are some bugs somewhere? I can't find that one either. Cheers!

It was a fun quiz. But there are several that you have listed that I don't see in the picture, and several that should be answers but are not. For example skinny puppy, the roots, yellowman, cornershop, etc. I know it is open to interpretation, but I'm sure all of those are in there and some of them don't really have an alternate explanation (skinny puppy). It was fun though, thanks for the quiz!

Why didnt you say the picture has to be scrolled. I got 25, but would have 50 if I knew dammit
Mar 8th, 2010 at 21:15 GMT
This is an excellent quiz. Aside from Skinny Puppy and Yellowman (mentioned already), I think you could accept Traffic as an alternate to The Cars.
Mar 9th, 2010 at 01:31 GMT
Thank you all for the suggestions, and thanks Dave for the kind comments! Not sure why this is getting such a bad rap (ha ha... get it? Rap? Sorry that was pretty bad...) Go Sporcle!
Mar 9th, 2010 at 18:14 GMT
Sorry, when have they ever been known as the Main Street Preachers?
Mar 10th, 2010 at 00:23 GMT
I dont get this quiz
Mar 10th, 2010 at 04:48 GMT
Great quiz! I wish I were more perceptive...

What about cornershop?
May 3rd, 2010 at 18:00 GMT
Yeah I don't see why Cornershop wasn't accepted. Also what about The Aeroplanes? or Men Without Hats?
Jul 6th, 2010 at 15:47 GMT
I love it! More quizzes like this, please!
Jul 7th, 2010 at 06:44 GMT
Awesome quiz! Here's my suggestions: The birds and bombers have Wings. Given the shape of the white snake, you could accept Helix. It also occurs to me that we have to Guess Who is represented in the picture (okay, that's tenuous). Finally, it's really too bad The Barenaked Ladies aren't represented somewhere! :D
Jul 8th, 2010 at 04:33 GMT
Don't forget Television
Sep 14th, 2010 at 02:57 GMT
That was good. Very good.
Sep 14th, 2010 at 22:29 GMT
Reel Big Fish for the fish in the bowl?
Oct 5th, 2010 at 05:02 GMT
May I suggest "The Cult" for the people in white. And I know it is obscure, but "Greenwheel" is a band. They had a song on the Spider-Man soundtrack. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenwheel
Feb 5th, 2011 at 01:54 GMT
Cool quiz. - The girl with the Cowboy Junkies is Jane, from Tarzan (Jane's Addiction). - I'm preety sure the shop in the corner is intended to be Cornershop, otherwise, why did they put that "shop" sign on the drawing?

Others who could count: Television (self explanitory) The Zombies (could be accepted in addition to White Zombie) Village People (people in the town I guess) The Presidents Of The United States Of America (JFK picture) White Stripes (on the street)
Jul 18th, 2011 at 18:32 GMT
If the White Stripes count for the crosswalk, then Pavement has to count simply for being everywhere in this photo. Television should count for the TVs that currently show Talking Heads. The subway may mean The Velvet Underground.
Mar 28th, 2012 at 10:20 GMT
Me quiz like good!
Aug 27th, 2012 at 20:14 GMT
Why is Phish accepted, but Fish isn't? Fish is the first singer of Marillion, he records under the name of Fish since he left the band. I think he's better known than Phish in Europe (may be the other side around in the USA). Also, I don't see Styx (Styx is a river, in the underworld). And what about Air? The Streets?
Aug 27th, 2012 at 20:22 GMT
Also, there is a band called Goldfish. Not that obscure, because they have been nominated a lot for the the South African Music Awards, and also one time for the MTV Africa Music Awards.
Dec 7th, 2012 at 16:10 GMT
There's shadows in the picture but no 'Shadows' who had several UK hits.
