Dammit, Otto! I've been blowing my work off all day!Iron Maiden
CakeAnd make that White Zombie.I'm out, but I want to know what's the purple building, and what's up with the two figures in the foregound?
That brings us to 28. And I'm with you, Furious, those two are driving me crazy.
29. Blind Melon30. Silverback31. Men Without Hats (?)
32. Hole33. Stray Cats
I've only got one:33. Beach Boys (two surfers in between the lampposts)Mr. Furious, I thought one of the foreground figures in the front a killer Queen, but I'm not sure.
Mr. Furious, I thought one of the foreground figures in the front a killer Queen, but I'm not sure.Actually, that's it. It's not one image, but several.35. Queen36. PrinceCan't figure out the guns. Velvet Revolver? Sex Pistols?
StyxMight my "Nickelback" actually be 50 Cent? I can't tell on this monitor.One of those cars is a Chevelle...am I reaching?I am the very definition of addiction. This time I really am going.
You're right about 50 Cent.And Styx makes it 37.
Had the count wrong -- we're at 38.Could the guns be "38 Special"?
39. Pink40. Postal ServiceI'm stepping away too. This is addictive.
You are all pawns to Virgin's Mobile music offer. Pawns I say!
God, I hate to post this, but the blurry guy is Erasure.
Actually, I think he's Blur.And now I also think you're gay.Not that there's anything wrong with that.But there is something wrong with Erasure.
RattTwisted Sister (?)
Good call, Studio41. Ratt Where's Twisted Sister? The girl by the subway is Alice in Chains.
Ah, I see. Well played.42. Twisted Sister
43. Lemonheads (fruit stand)44. Talking Heads (TV store window)
Are those 2 posters Dead Kennedys?
45. Korn (fruit stand)46. U2 (graffiti over TV shop)
Are those 2 posters Dead Kennedys?Yep. Nice catch.47. Dead Kennedys
48. Madonna (the oil painting in the window)49. Counting Crows (on the street sign)
Has no one said Blues Brothers?
Has no one said Blues Brothers?I thought they were Men without Hats. Blues Brothers seemed not literal enough. (They would've shown two boys who were actually blue.)
50. KISS (couple making out)What the hell is that calendar about?
It could be the Neil Diamond cover band "Hot August Knights"
Is the girl on the balcony "Blondie"?
What's with the bubble gum chewing dildo?
OOOH!!! I know this one!!The calendar is GREEN DAY!And the little flying fairies are the PIXIES! I am SO glad I didn't see this util the end of the day b/c I'd NEVEr have gotten my work done! Also, it's hard to see some of these things!Also, I thot the two guys in black were too obvious for the Blues Bros., but maybe they are.
The calendar is Green Day.I figured the crows for Black Crowes.Those shouldn't be the blues Brothers, not with guitar cases. It would be too obvious anyway.I already had Lemonheads, Don't count it twice.I like the Talking Heads, I was going to try and make a case for "Television"I'm crying foul on "Twisted Sister" If it were a nun, maybe.What is that thing on the fire escape?I wasn't able to stay away long.
What is that weird iron statue...WAIT! Iron Maiden! did we get that one already? I'm having toruble keeping track? can someone do a digest of bands found thus far?also, I'm coming up blank on the purple wall...and what about the hill behind that one gorilla with the trees on it? and the girl on the balcony with bubble gum?
ORF, the digest is already here. Anything with a number in front of it is on the official tally.Thanks, Furious. So we already had Green Day and Lemonheads, and I think you're right that the crows are black, and not counting. So that brings us to 48.Come on, folks, we're nearly 2/3 there. Who's got 49?
Does the plant in the foreground count as "Bush"?And what's with the mountain in the background? Is that 70s rock group Mountain, or something a little wittier?
49. Radiohead36. Prince Bah, that pansy is a knave at best...
Nice catch on Radiohead. I thought those speakers were headlights on the cars behind him.Any thoughts on the bubblegum blonde in the balcony?
Outstanding, Studio!50. Cypress Hill
And what's going on in the windows over the TV shop? Crowded House? House Party?
The queen has 2 "Sex Pistols"
Yeah, that's what I thought. It is a British company, too, so we'll put that down.51. Sex Pistols
And the crosswalk represents52. White Stripes
Bee Gee's next to the U2
Nice work. I couldn't make those out, but you've got tremendous eyesight. (And to think, they said you'd be blind by the end of high school because of your, uh, hobbies.)53. Bee Gees
ok, what's the little pile of silver sticks in the foreground? and also, there's a necklace in a black box just under the fruit stand. what is that? and also that group of people dressed in white in the back? and the three women dressed like punky brewster holding hands running from one of the stones?Also, i think the poster behind the white zombie has a Seal on it. So, that's what, number 52? Seal?
53. Skinny Puppy (on the sidewalk)5:00! I'm punching out. I think I actually earned about one hour's worth of my salary today...Thanks, blogosphere!
Purple Wall=Deep Purple!!!
Sorry, I'll let you number 'em, OM.Good Luck, I'll check back in later. Somebody needs to find a higher resolution version of this thing...
Necklace in a box=Jewel. I'm sorry to keep posting like this, y'all...they just keep coming to me. I think I need to walk away....
I thought that was a seal as well, but it could be a rooster...[tearing...self...away...]
Skinny Puppy is right, but only replaces Stray Cats which I'd suggested earlier.54. Seal55. Deep PurpleNice work, people.
56. JewelWell done. See you in five minutes, Furious.
I forgot we were dealing with the English:57. CornershopI'm outta here.
58. Nine Inch NailsNow I'm gone. For real.
are those Cranberries on the road?
Nice!59. CranberriesFor a better zoomable image, check out: http://www.rockontop.com/It's let Malibu Stacy and I discover these: 60. The Police (back by the cars)61. Crowded House (over the TV shop)62. Dinosaur Jr. (to the left of the queen)63. Great White (shark image on the bus stop)
64. The Alarm (above the zombie)The Cranberries are actually in the boxes by the fruit stand. The stuff by the nails looks like M&Ms.
The RootsThe Streets?What the hell is that golden man? And the group of white-clad people? And the acrobats? And the dudes on the roof? And the dudes in sunglasses? And the spilt candy?And where are The Beatles?
The televisions with the people in them under the crowded house is the Talking Heads! I thought of that one on the subway. And good call on the BEatles...where ARE they?I think the Roots are the things growing out of the sewer grate. Either that or the Vines. Is there a band called the Vines?
The stuff by the nails looks like M&Ms.Eminem?And, yes there is a band called The Vines.I was just checking out the bigger version (after rying to avoid reading any answers...) and we have to take Styx off the list. Both things I thought were sticks (the vines/roots and the nails are NOT sticks.Not sure if you counted this, OM, but those cars aren't Chevelles either. they might be Mustangs.
65. The Roots66. The StreetsNice call, Steusch. ORF, we've already nailed down the Talking Heads, but no word on the Beatles yet. They've got to be somewhere....Is the yellow man on the street corner simply Yellow Man? Could the white-clad people be the Manic Street Preachers?I'm backing away from the acrobats being Twisted Sister. It's got to be something else.
Eminem! Nice work.And yes, we have a double dose of Styx/Roots there, but I think it's the Roots coming out of the sewer grate. The silver sticks are Nine Inch Nails.So add, Eminem in the place of Styx, and we're still at 66.
Could the guys on the roof be Men at Work? It looks like they're constructing something and the guy on the right looks like he's hammering.
Not sure if you counted this, OM, but those cars aren't Chevelles either. they might be Mustangs.We just counted them as The Cars.
I just realized "Silverback" isn't a band name -- I conflated "Silverchair" and "Nickleback." We're down to 65.
66. The Go Gos (three girls holding hands by the rolling stones)Alright, time to go.
Alright, I'm through messing around. Bringing this bad boy into Photoshop.I'm willing to go with Manic Street Preachers.Right behind them are some colored panels. they look like doors...The Doors. The guys in the suits are covered in blood. That and the fact that they are packing machine guns in those guitar cases makes them...The Killers. Does the pink sky mean anything to anyone?That's clearly a platinum blonde girl blowing a bubble on the fire escape. What that means I don't know.Looks like a blow-up doll in the window of the corner store...
There are at least two things stumping me: a) the bag of onions in the right forefront...?b) has anyone noticed that the queen's crown is an out-of-place color (purple) and it looks broken?also, the sky is pink. hmmm...Yellowman seems sort of obscure to be the answer.
oh, somebody already said Pink. my bad, dog.
The Doors is right, and we had Men without Hets (yeah, I'm sorry) in for the Killers. I already have Pink in for the sky.67. The Doors68. The Killers
The bag of onions is driving me crazy. The queen's crown is interesting. And what about the plant in front of the flower cart? "Bush"?And I'll call it:69. Manic Street Preachers
Traffic is interesting. We already have the Cars -- can we double down?
No, the people in white are the Grateful Dead. There's a priest in the middle of them and they look like angels. It hit me on the way home.How many times did I say M&Ms in my head and NOT get Eminem?!?1 I'm a retard!What is the guy w/ the boombox crossing the street?And good call on the Killers! I KNEW there was a reason they had blood on them.I think the girl w/ the bubble gum is Blondie.And I'm still stumped by the yellow guy and the blow up doll in the window. Also, is that a rat behind the nails and M&Ms? Is there a band called Rat?
What??? How old are you? (see #41)Could it be said that the guy smashing pumpkins is using a Tool? and/or has a Band-Aid on his arm?
Easy, easy, Mrs. T!! I was pretty pleased with myself for getting Deep Purple, so back off ;)Also, i just figured out boombox guy, but we've already got Radiohead.
No, the people in white are the Grateful Dead. There's a priest in the middle of them and they look like angels. It hit me on the way home.Great call. That's it.What is the guy w/ the boombox crossing the street?Radiohead.I think the girl w/ the bubble gum is Blondie.That's as good as I've been able to get, but I'm still not sure.
Behind the white snake, there is a black window while the others on that building look normal. could it be The Darkness? Also, would the subway posts be for Train?
Could the queen's rotted-out crown be topped with a big pearl?
Could the queen's rotted-out crown be topped with a big pearl?Is it Pearl Jam?
I consider orf lucky for never hearing of Ratt.I'm voting no for Traffic. There's only three cars and two of them are parked.I think some things are in there as mere scenery (the onions, boxes of clementines under the cranberries...). But the pineapples seem deliberate. I had friends with a campus band callled The Pineapples and they are responsible for my love o "Born on the Bayou", but somehow I don't think that's them...
maybe the bubble blower is an Air Supply? :)
way i see it, the group dressed in white could be any of the following:the cultgrateful deadmanic street preachersthe proclaimersmust sleep. thanks for the sweet link, and for the entertainment.
Could the bubble blower be Silverpop?
I keep coming back to Blondie for the bubble blower.Who is the golden/yellow man on the corner? The acrobats?
Since they're on the street, I vote for Manic Street Preachers.Is Pavement a stretch?
Alright, I'm calling it.69. BlondieThe Manic Street Preachers/Grateful Dead debate is one for the ages, but I think in a toss-up we have to go with the Dead for simply being the better-known band.I like the idea of Pavement and the Streets, but that might be too obscure for this contest.Six more, folks. Bring it on.
Did we figure out the queen with the guns yet? I was thinking about this -- if you remember your English history, there was a fight between the houses of York and Lancaster referred to as the War of the Roses. Any way this is Guns n' Roses?
Did we figure out the queen with the guns yet? I was thinking about this -- if you remember your English history, there was a fight between the houses of York and Lancaster referred to as the War of the Roses. Any way this is Guns n' Roses? Apparently, somebody's not reading the marathon comments.The queen with the guns is (1) Queen and (2) Sex Pistols. (A closer look makes it clear that the gun barrels are basically pink dildos.)Meanwhile, the flower cart has several bouquets of roses and shotguns, and that's Guns 'n' Roses.
I'm going with my gut here. The guys on the roof look like they're hammering together a wooden frame:70. Men at Work

This list still includes Twisted Sister (38), which Otto and I think is probably wrong. So we are really only at 68 unless i missed something...
Nice work, Furious. I would've done it, but I'm a lazy lazy man.
OK, I'm convinced that it's Yellowman, so put him in.And next to the cake -- Scorpions. Can't believe Thrillhous didn't hone in on that one right away.That puts us back at a legit 70.
Actually, Men at Work is wrong. I think it's the Carpenters up on the roof.But I found a new one. To the right of Cypress Hill, there's a building whose windows look like three sets of "11."71. 311
Found another site where people have been able to check guesses against the Virgin site. Two of our earlier guesses are correct:72. Pavement73. Twisted SisterAnd for the record, the group in white is officially The Cult.There's apparently something in the picture that represents D12, but I haven't got a clue. If we can find that one, there's just one more remaining.
See, you're not so lazy...
Just curious, is this a "Nachos" record for comments?
Yes, this is absolutely the record for most comments on this site. I think the previous best was a FRT that had about 35 comments.
I like the Dead better than Manic Street Preachers, but I agree that the Cult is best. Makes more sense since the people don't LOOK dead, just angelic.Also, a group/guy named Yellowman DOES exist, so I think that's it.The queen's crown has something weird on it, but my screen at home is so tiny and I cannot figure out how to enlarge the pic any more, so I can't make out what it is. Finally, we dind't have the Scorpions? I thot those were obvious!Well done on 3-11!
Oh and also, I think we can have BOTH The Streets and Pavement b/c there is that Main St. sign behind the subway entrance (The Streets) and there is well, Pavement, all over. So where does that put us?
We've already put down both Pavement and the Streets, so nothing to add there.Here's a question for someone with a zoomable image: Is the girl with the Cowboy Junkies dressed in a leopard print? Like Tarzan's Jane? Could that be Jane's Addiction?
"...someone with a zoomable image: Is the girl with the Cowboy Junkies dressed in a leopard print?"Inconclusive. I'd say it's a solid brown suede-ish top and something else for eh bottom, but I can't say it's leopard...Maybe we can send it to the "lab" on ANY tv cop show. You know, where they enlarge even the crappiest surveillance footage 3000% to a perfect image at hi-def resolution..."Yeah, can you zoom in on that guy in the background? Enhance that...yes...It's him!"
What did we decide on The Darkness (i.e. the black window behind the snake)?
I like the Darkness. They blacked out those windows for a reason.
