      Virgin's Contest

      No, not that kind of virgin. Virgin Records was having a contest. There are supposedly 75 bands in this picture. Can you name them all? I've managed to find about 40 or so, with my brother's help.

      Also, it should be noted that there is a small part of the picture missing (I couldn't find a version of the complete one) so I'll give you guys a head start. To the left of the *ahem* white zombie should be a small chihuahua (Skinny Puppy), some boys standing near the window of a pet shop (Pet Shop Boys), and a cake (Cake). If you don't believe me, or you just want to see for yourself, you can see the flash version (complete with annoying ads) [url=http://www.heavy.com/heavy.php?channel=virginGame]here.

      -------




      I'll put up my list after I've gotten a few replies. I won't cheat, though. I promise.

      This is pretty cool. Here's what I got.

      Guns N' Roses, Matchbox 20, Prince, Queen, Scissor Sisters, Blues Brothers, Sex Pistols, 50 Cent, Black Crowes, White Snake, Nine Inch Nails, Cypress Hill, Gorillaz, Eagles, B-52s, The Eels, U2, The Postal Service, Eminem, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cranberries, White Zombie, Dead Kennedys, Seal, Roots (or Vines?), Dinosaur Jr, Phish, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blind Melon, Lemonheads, Cowboy Junkies, Blur, Alice In Chains, Radiohead, Garbage, Hole, Iron Maiden, Rolling Stones, Manic Street Preachers, The Doors, Black Flag, Men at Work (or the Carpenters?), Deep Purple, Spoon, Led Zeppelin, The Pixies, Cars, Beach Boys, Twisted Sister, The Police, Jewel, Korn...

      Hmmm....KISS.....Pavement....Yellowman...Bush...Br oken Social Scene...Pink

      That's 59....

      Plus Cake, Skinny Puppy and Pet Shop Boys

      So 62....

      I'm not sure about:
      - The girl in the bikini in the shop window...she looks blue in the face so it could be Bikini Kill.
      - The three girls holding hands in costume
      - The house full of people
      - The TV sets in the window
      - The girl blowing bubblegum...could be Britney Spears?
      - The orange and yellow bag of something in the bottom right.
      - The rat...is there a band called Rat?
      - The shark looking thing behing Yellowman
      - The picture of what looks like Mary and Jesus on the shop window...
      - The plant below the guns and roses

      No, its in my list.

      That plant "below" the Guns N' Roses is what I'm unsure of.

      Wait...it was in my list. I think I deleted it by accident.

      EDIT: yeah I accidentally deleted a line of text, its fixed now.

      Crap. I actually have things to do and I'm staring at this picture.
      How about :
      Beach Boys, dudes with surfboards
      Talking Heads, TV sets in window
      Sex Pistols, self explainatory
      And what's up with the calender marked 08/21/06 on the fruit stand?

      I gotta get moving or my whole day will be shot in the ass.

      *. The spoon (I think there is a band called The Spoons but I haven’t found proof yet)

      That would be like me missing Nine Inch Nails (which I almost did, until I realized that those sticks were actually nails).

      The people kissing on the street corner are, I believe, KISS.

      The roots behind the queen really threw me. All I could think of was Twisted Roots, but it occurred to me that they never got big beyond New England. I got stumped from there.

      Cowboy Junkies. That crossed my mind, too. That and Jane's Addiction, which I doubted.

      Black Flag. Wow, that was obvious. I feel dumb now. :sweat2:

      Dinosaur Jr... damn. I'm really feeling dumb now.

      ... and The Postal Service. Like I thought, the answer was an obvious one.

      Looks like I'll be checking out a few bands. I’m glad I put this here in the Lounge. I love stuff like this.

      Nope. Those are nails. Nine Inch Nails to be precise. ^_^
