Challenge Revisited


I am trying this again...there was trouble in bloggerland yesterday. Things just didn't seem to be working.

This is a picture with 75 bands symbolically shown. It is pretty interesting. I found 35 bands on my own. Use the link to view the photo in a larger format and you can get a better look. If you find a band, leave a comment and share it. But don't be too greedy and list a ton, just a few.

I'll start...Radiohead.

my boyfriend (who also seems to know every band that ever existed) did this together last night. I'll leave a few of the harder ones. (also, we found more than 75, so interpretation is key i guess)


Crowded House
BeeGees
Cranberries

10gazillion points to whoever can figure out what that yellow dude leaning against the wall on the left is supposed to be.

That's Yellowman. He'a reggae artist from Jamaica.

I'll add Lemonheads, Cornershop, Eels and the White Stripes.

Sara, I found about the same amount as you.
Postal Service
Roots
Garbage
Dead Presidents

I found all of them last week, plus, I guess, a couple that I made up but would still be applicable.

I think my favorite is THE SEX PISTOLS being held by QUEEN shooting at PRINCE.

Unfortunately, your version of the picture cuts off several of the bands, including THE SCORPIONS, SKINNY PUPPY, CAKE and THE PET SHOP BOYS which would both be located off the left edge of the picture.

Oh and Reddog, the one that I think you labeled DEAD PRESIDENTS is actually DEAD KENNEDYS...on the wall on the left, back between SEAL and MADONNA and next to WHITE ZOMBIE and behind THE POSTAL SERVICE, that's John F. and Bobby Kennedy.

I don't have time to list anymore right now, but I found them....I'm such a damn nerd.

Leif, I thought that was a picture of Jesus and Mary Chain.

Also, there is a band named Kennedys, but there is a band named Dead Kennedys...so it could be both.

So, we've found 24. I will add a few more...

The two girls are KISSing and I see PIXIES flying above near the BLONDIE on the fire escape.

Now, that is 27.

I would say there is a better case for it being the DEAD KENNEDYS. If it were just the KENNEDYS, they probably would have used a picture of of Teddy instead of Bobby. Just a thought.

I'm sorry...you're right. That was totally uncalled for and selfish of me.

For the life of me, I can't remember what the other 5 are.
