75 Bands – The Answers!

I’m convinced after a couple of weeks of this dominating mails sent to me and comments on the board that you can see pretty much any bands you want to in this but how and ever…

As a final comment and to draw a veil over this once and for all, here are the ones you guys saw…

For all those that said Rob Zombie, you’re wrong! It’s the old much better band Rob used to be in known as White Zombie. Look it up download it and hear some good music.

Monday’s newspaper published this picture and the answers.They said that there was only 70 bands in it(although if they have pink there why don’t they have the Darkness?).Also the pictures do not relate to characteristics of the bands so the 2 girls kissing is not tattoo etc,… and they have to represent the band name exactly so the rat is not the boomtown rats as where does the boomtown fit in?Anyway heres what they gave:>Smashing Pumkins>Scissor Sisters>Nine Inch Nails>Alice in Chains>White Zombie>WhiteSnake>Radiohead>Green Day>Cranberries>Madonna>Guns N Roses>Sex Pistols>Prince>Rolling Stones>Gorillazs>Manic Street Preachers>Seal>The Pixies>Men at Work>Crowded House>U2>Bee Gees>Eminem>Twisted Sister>The Killers>Hole>The Police>Iron Maiden>The White Stripes>Blur>Kiss>The Doors>Led Zepplin>The B52’s >Black Flag>The Cars>The Beach Boys>The Egagles>Cyprus Hill>Blondie>The Lemonheads>Ratt >50 Cent>Dead Kennedys>New York Dolls >Bush>Dinorsour Junior>The Vines>The Eels>Matchbox 20>Phish>Garbage>Deep Purple>Spoon>Red Hot Chilli Peppers>Blind Melon>The Postal Workers >Yellowman>Pink>Pavement>The Streets>Trio >Subway>Jewell>Cornershop>Black Crows>Korn>Queen>Cowboy Junkies>Great White
