How good is your knowledge of band names?

Recommended Posts

I figured we needed something better to talk about than the other stuff going on in the world!  This has been around for several years, but it's probably old enough to almost be original again - lol.

There are 75 band names buried in the picture below.  I'll let it go for a while before I post one solution.

Enjoy!  🙂

Resolution is tough on my eyes too, but Queen shooting Prince with the S e x  Pistols is rather funny...

Other quickies... 50 Cent, Alice in Chains, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Iron Maiden.

Good job!  You even found some that weren't on my list!  (Pink Fairies, Mountain, the Shadows, Focus, Trapeze, the Blues Brothers and the Byrds.)  Pink, the Pixies, Cypress Hill, Blur, Twisted Sister, the Killers and the Eagles were on my list.  Heck, some of your choices are better!

All yep, plus two I don't have: Beach Boys and Television (both of which should be on my list - I can see 'em!).
