Well, I just came up with an idea to see how many people know about music and bands and stuff. It's pretty simple, someone says clues and stuff, and people ask yes or no questions to find out the answer. Please only one at a time so as to avoid confusion, whover gets the last one right may have the next turn. I'll start off, obviously.

I have 3 words in my name, the first 2 are the exact same. I am from Buffalo, New York.
My biggest hit had 4 letters in the song name and it starts with the lette 'I'.
Which band am I?

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

Next: We're named after a creature, and we have several songs with weather phenomena in their title. We're also fairly fond of wienerschnitzel.

^ The Scorpions?

Next: I am one of the "big four" thrash metal bands, along with Megadeth and Anthrax, and come from Los Angeles, Cal. I have four members, a bassist, lead singer/rhythm guitarist, Lead guitarist, and drummer. Who am I?

Next: Which hard rock/ grunge band changed their name from Stereo Temple Pirates right before the release of their first album?

04-11-2008, 04:01 AM
Stone Temple Pilots!

Next: We're a Finnish Heavy Metal/Symphonic Metal band with a catch - we don't use electric instruments. We are four members and three of us play cellos.

^ Apocalyptica! win.

Next: We're one of the most infamous black metal bands from Norway. We have stirred much controversy because of our live shows, murders and suicides within our band.

Nope, Metallica.

EDIT: Mayhem FTW! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayhem_%28band%29

Haha, that one was pretty easy. :D

New One: We're an Irish alternative rock band and we are featured on the soundtrack of a Star Wars game that involves a lot of shooting!

^Ash! Took me an hour to find that one! And I am a big fan of RC too!

I am a band that did a song called "Guitar Hero" which in fact ended up on Guitar Hero, which was amde by a company that included several members of that band. We are also named after a martial arts move that rips a dudes balls off.:ball: Who the hell am I?

Seeing as this has been up for 4 days and no one has gotten it, I'll just say it. Its "Monkey Steals The Peach." :xp:

Next: We formed this band after our guitarist was rejected by Metallica. We are also one of the "Big Four" Thrash metal bands, and feature a similar lineup to Metallica. Some our most famous songs are "Hangar 18" and "Symphony Of Destruction"

Sorry for the double post, too. :xp:

^ Megadeth :)

This band had it roots in LA's paisely underground scene from the throughout the 80s. Founded in 1990 with a new singer named Hope, this 60 beats-per-minute band calmly blew our minds and blurred our vision with a dark-edged psychedelia, a la the Doors and Velvet Underground. Their only commercial hit came in 1993 with "Fade Into You".

^Mazzy Star FTW.

I am a guitar virtuoso and one of the best guitar players alive (In my opinion). I am famous by my fascination with chickens and nunchuks, and never showing my face in public. I play a variety of instrumetns, ranging from the ukelele to bass and electric guitar, to the organ and banjo. I was one of the key members in the "Deli Creeps" and have played with many famous musicians, from Serj Tankian to Travis Dickerson, to Saul Williams and Gigi.

Who am I?

Formed in 1958 under a different name, they were popular in the 60s and still record today. Career was given a boost by Tarentino's Pulp Fiction. Who are they?

^ The Impressions?

I can't think of a good one, so go nuts.

04-15-2008, 05:38 AM
Wrong group.

04-15-2008, 10:06 AM
^Well then I have no idea, b/c there were 17 groups on th "bands formed in 1958" page on wikipedia, and thats the only one still around. Can we get a hint?

Is it the Centurions? (and plz give more of a hint than that in the future)

04-15-2008, 12:34 PM
Extra hints: Very popular in Japan, where they've outsold the Beatles 2:1. The best selling instrumental band of all time (110 million copies of 38 albums sold). Book 'em, Dan O.

^ The Ventures?
