Awesome puzzle...

So far, I've gotten 33 of them, and know I'm missing way too many. But Thats nearly half so I'm happy.

Definitely KISS, Jewel (good one, I couldn't figure that one out), Blur, and the Beach Boys. Personally, I thought White Stripes and KISS were the trickiest ones in there (at least out of the 50 I could spot).

Are the two guys with the guitar cases supposed to be Blues Traveler? To the right of them is Hole (the hole in the ground); just behind the hole are The Gogo's. Behind them (and the lamp post) is Bush.

No, not Blues Traveler:


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
I believe they are The Killers. At first I thought they were supposed to be the Blues Brothers, but that doesn't fit in with the theme of the rest of the picture (i.e., plays on words and puns).

This thing is kicking my ass. Wild guesses...


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
- Soaring airplanes... The most obvious would be Jefferson Airplane?
- Queen with pink gun... Velvet Revolver?
- The building with the purple wall deep in the picture... Deep Purple?

Not quite.

The guns look like they have vibrators to me, so I say Sex Pistols.

My total count is at 61 for now. The bigger version is really helpful.

Here's a really far-fetched guess: the blurry guy with the pink shirt on the right...since he's a blur, he's really fast...REM maybe? (rapid eye movement)

EDIT: Never mind. The answer would be:

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Blur. I feel stupid now.


I'm really having trouble with:
- The two contortionnists
- The girl on the balcony blowing a bubble
- The yellow bastard lookalike
- The pink sky (Pink Floyd? just Pink?)
- The group in white with their arms up

Could the people in white be The Cult?
I think the blonde blowing bubbles is Blondie. I didn't notice her the first time, damnit. Err, I mean THANKS!

(I don't do spoiler tags... sorry.)

What's getting me is what the hell is in the dorway behind the guys with the surf boards? It's kinda creepy.

EDIT: Are there some sort of rules for this thing? Can something have a double meaning? Like with the Gorillaz and The Monkees?

EDIT (Again): SHIT! The apartment to the right with all the people... Crowded House!

I feel like until the originator of the picture (whoever the hell THAT is) publishes his list of the alleged 75 bands, there HAS to be double meanings allowed. Then again, while two people may come up with two different bands for the same thing in the picture, one of those bands is usually a better fit than the other.

I just discovered that the picture posted above is actually a cut version intended to be used as desktop wallpaper.

http://www.heavy.com/heavy.php?channel=virginGame shows the whole thing in a flash version with a magnifying glass you can zoom around with. This adds about 5 that were not visible in the other version, and verifies that the correct number is 74.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
