Finish the Band Names


Alex, I think this one's for you.

It's Thursday afternoon. This is way late for me to be writing my Friday blog post, but I've been having computer issues, and I was unable to find a good quiz for today. Until this one popped up on my Facebook feed.

Finish These Band Names


I had not heard of six of them. Googling helped. (Not that I'm advocating cheating... ;) ) 

A couple things to keep in mind. First, you can type the names in any order. It'll match the name to the band, so you can skip around without "previous" or "forward" buttons. Second, you do have to spell it correctly. One letter off, and it won't take it. Third, you don't need to hit "enter" or anything. As soon as you finish typing the word it takes it (you don't even need to hit the space bar). 

How many of these bands have you not heard of? Or are you a music expert and you are familiar with all of them?

  1. Perfect score! I was impressed with some of their choices. Killswitch Engage? One of my favorite bands.

    1. Yeah, many of those I'd never heard of before.

  3. I didn't know The Mars Volta, though it sounds vaguely familiar. And I couldn't think of Dream Theater, but I knew the rest. Finally, a quiz I couldn't resist. ~grin~ I may have to try the song titles now, though I should probably get back to writing. Happy Blogging!

    2. Thanks! And just so you know, I was awful at the song title quiz. ~snicker~ Those were all over the place in era and genre. I like my doo wop, for example, but don't know song titles. As for most current pop, forget it. I'm hopeless.

    3. It's too bad that song titles weren't as easy. I guess you just have to listen to more music ;)

  4. Oo 23. I didn't know some. But not bad for a non music person, I'd guess :D

  5. I only got 23 because I hadn't heard of some of them either. And you're right, this is totally an Alex thing :)

    1. Not bad. Some of those bands are not all that well known.

  9. I got 23/30. The ones I didn't get I totally never heard of so I'm alright with that score I guess.
    That was a fun quiz! I love the site: a lot of cool quizzes there. Thanks Liz!

    Have a good weekend,

  10. Hi Liz - I found I could do one ' Roses' .... and then definitely wouldn't get any more ... so wisely gave up ... cheers Hilary

  11. I got 28 out of 30 although, for two of them, I had to Google spellings (spellings are not my strength). The two I missed I had absolutely no clue about. My son, by the way, saw Killswitch Engage in a small venue concert here years ago, before they became famous. And without him telling me about one other band he liked (Dream Theatre), I only would have scored 26. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I had not heard of those two before. And yeah, a couple of those spellings were tricky. (I much prefer autocorrect in those instances ;) )

  12. Four band names escaped me. I had heard of Lamb of God once I saw the correct answer.
    I know the dated stuff (60s/70s-90s) pretty well. And, from my bartending days got a few of the more contemporary band names. We had a pretty righteous juke box at one of the bars I worked in. :)

    1. Nice! Personally I'm terrible at contemporary band names.

  13. I got 15/30 Mostly the older bands. Some of these I have never heard of. I got really slowed down trying to spell a couple of them: Skynyrd and Zeppelin! Fun

    1. Yup, those are the ones I struggled to spell correctly, too. And I think we've probably both never heard of some of the same bands.

      Delete
  14. I got 28/30! Quite a lot of old-school bands. A few I had just heard the name but I didn't know any music by them. I think I should get extra credit too, because weren't nearly all American? :)

  15. 24/30 Not bad. No surprise Alex got them all, lol

  16. Score 30/30 Timer 00:58
    You got 100% correct


    Whoohoo! Did better than I expected. :3

    1. Congrats. You must listen to more music than me. (Although, that's really not saying much. Just about everyone listens to more music than me.)

  17. I didn't know 5 of the bands. And I couldn't spell Motley Crue correctly. And I gave up with 3 minutes left on the clock. Ain't nobody got time for this. ;) Your tips did help, though. :)

    1. Crue? Really? I had more trouble with Skynyrd (and I don't even know if that's correct). We all have our stumbling blocks ;)
