10:09 pm - Name the bands

Here is a version of the game that does not cut off the left side, and there's a magnifying glass available:
http://www.heavy.com/index.php?channel=virginGame

There are 74 bands (some say 75) represented in this picture. Can you name them?


After a while, I'll point to some sites where the bands are listed.

There are a few other individuals: Prince, Seal, and Madonna. So I would say they mean band in a general sense.

Nifty!

Smashing Pumpkins, Guns and Roses, The Gorrilaz, and Crowded House all jump out at me. Oh, and White Zombie! And Led Zeppelin!

And Men at Work!

And The Eels, if that's what's behind the robbery.

Oh, and the Rolling Stones. Too obvious, and I failed to see it.

Stopping now.

And Whitesnake is climbing the traffic light (can we also claim Traffic?), and those are definitely Talking Heads on those tvs.

And Blur was right next to Alice in Chains, and below the Eagles.

And there's a painting of the Madonna, and the robber is Queen.

And August 21 looks to be a Green Day.

Must. Stop. Now. Otherwise, I'll be staring at this all night.

The Queen is holding The Sex Pistols and the person she's holding up is Prince. I think the brightly colored rectangles in the back are Doors. Also: Garbage, Radiohead, Black Flag, Blind Melon, and flying right through the middle, The Eagles.

The two b&w photographs on the wall? They're hard to see, but I vote they're Dead Kennedys.

Yes, they are. It's easier to see in the link with the magnifying glass.

But note that one person in that group isn't a cowboy. It's a different band.
