The name of #3 should have the word "to", not "from". An interesting quiz though.

I don't understand the 'flying computers' one...
Aug 19th, 2011 at 13:43 GMT
Thanks AuroraIllumina, I changed it.
Aug 19th, 2011 at 15:02 GMT
@Squinta: More specifically, what are those computers? And what are they made of?
Aug 19th, 2011 at 15:03 GMT
the running eye for REM was a interesting one. missed it the first time through but as soon as i saw REM i remembered rapid eye movement. nice quiz.

Those are scissors?
Aug 19th, 2011 at 16:13 GMT
Great stuff. Could go viral.
Aug 19th, 2011 at 16:43 GMT
@hibernia: they looked more like crossbows to me, and the freaky makeup threw me off too.
Aug 19th, 2011 at 20:24 GMT
@hibernia: Those are Edward Scissorhands scissors.

Green Day is two words.

Great quiz. #12 is especially sick.

i quit playing when nickleback appeared.....no excuses
Aug 20th, 2011 at 03:11 GMT
I'm an idiot. I didn't look at the grid as I was playing and thus thought that the "Play" thing at the start wasn't a question. Derp.
Aug 20th, 2011 at 16:01 GMT
Great quiz! Some were very difficult, yet some were guessable. It was the perfect level of difficulty.
Aug 20th, 2011 at 19:07 GMT
I was going to say "ruh-roh, cue the infantile anti-Nickelback comments in 3...2...1...", but I see I was too late. Anyway, great quiz. #7 is particularly inspired. Couldn't #14 be the Pointer Sisters and #19 be Cat Power, though?
Aug 20th, 2011 at 22:25 GMT
The Bee Gees, Dusty Springfield and Thin Lizzy were real groaners. Linkin Park was just bad. Like Squinta, I dont get the Fleetwood Mac one. Supertramp was cute.
Aug 20th, 2011 at 22:31 GMT
REM has consistently denied that the band name stands for Rapid Eye Movement, for what it's worth.
Aug 20th, 2011 at 22:50 GMT
Ok. Now that I've thought about Morningbell's comment and looked at the picture again, we can transfer Fleetwood Mac into the category of groaner. :/
Aug 20th, 2011 at 23:12 GMT
Haha 17 and 20 were my favourites. Definitely agree with the 'groaner' bit though :)
Aug 21st, 2011 at 01:32 GMT
I totally thought the one with the nuns was Bad Religion.
Aug 21st, 2011 at 15:34 GMT
arctic monkeys lol
Aug 21st, 2011 at 23:29 GMT
Perhaps for #13 the nickel should be Canadian? Just a thought. Fun quiz though.
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 13:00 GMT
Someone tell me I'm not the only one who guessed "The Dillinger Escape Plan" for #17!
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 19:36 GMT
I'm almost ashamed to say I got Atomic Kitten lol
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 19:38 GMT
Green Day was too freaking easy that I got it wrong. lol I kept thinking things like Jefferson Airplane, Cowsills, etc. I thought Dusty Springfield was pure genius.
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 20:39 GMT
How about Twisted Sister for the nuns? Although I guess that would be Twisted Sisters... Anyway, they are giving me Catholic school flashbacks, and I'm not happy about it!
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 21:40 GMT
I was going for Dismemberment Plan...
Aug 23rd, 2011 at 08:03 GMT
I also tried Dillinger Escape Plan :) Had never heard of Atomic Kitten, must be a British thing. Love the idea for the quiz, but like others have said, some were very groan-worthy and others barely made sense. Still quite fun overall.
Aug 23rd, 2011 at 16:46 GMT
There was confusion for number 17, as Dillinger was a bank robber, but I managed to get Simple Plan anyway :) I'm usually pretty slow on quizzes, but I can't be the only one who needed more time.
Aug 25th, 2011 at 01:33 GMT
It took me forever to get #20. Until I finally realized it was a fleet of wooden macs...
Aug 25th, 2011 at 15:48 GMT
Aug 25th, 2011 at 20:33 GMT
Simple Plan made me laugh. I tried "Radioactive Kitten." So close! I also tried Supertramp and was surprised that it actually worked.
Aug 27th, 2011 at 03:39 GMT
Okay, Supertramp was great, but there wasn't NEARLY enough time in my opinion. Linkin Park...no. Way too out there.
Aug 30th, 2011 at 14:03 GMT
The Audioslave one was really creative!
