    4. Frank Zappa - Valley Girl? 12. Regina Spektor - Summer In The City Is #15 TISM? #25... I'm hoping you did not just post a Pokemon theme song. 35. Slipknot = People = Shit? I don't listen to early Slipknot, so I'm just guessing. 37. Devin Townsend - Omnidimentional Creator 38. Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings

    AH! #15 is The Post-Modern Song, but I have absolutely no idea who released it. All I remember is that it repeated the line I'm so post-modern... blah blah blah. I'm so post-modern I wrote a letter to council... I think it was 'M'.

    I'm so post-modern... I'll pay that. You should all know number 33, or at least the song it's from.

    The Bedroom Philosopher... never would have got that. And please, do not credit the Pokemon one to me. :P

    24 Sep 2007, 3:39
  • Richaod

    Don't worry, it's less embarrassing than me actually putting it on there. Or listening to the song from the first movie soundtrack, which I own. :P It was a present!

    2. Parklife - Blur 3. Crucify - Tori Amos 10. Mama - Kate Miller-Heidke 11. Gloria - Patti Smith 17. Straight Lines - Silverchair 18. Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House 39. White & Nerdy - Weird Al Yankovic That's all I can come up with...

    24 Sep 2007, 9:12
  • Richaod

    Nice, all of those are right. And it's currently a tie!

    24 Sep 2007, 12:18
  • plattopus

    Argh fuck I should have got the Crowded House. I'm completely done with the rest... although is the Tipper Gore one a Twisted Sister song?

    24 Sep 2007, 16:58
  • TheSecondComing

    1. Wilcannia Mob... I'm not sure if this line is from the samples on M.I.A.'s Mango Pickle or their original song a couple of years back. Suuuuurely you have to give this one to me though! 6. PJ Harvey - Big Exit 16. Public Enemy - Fight the Power 32. Nine Inch Nails - Capital G ;)

    Good stuff Matt, the Wilcannia Mob one is on both. The Tipper Gore one isn't Twisted Sister - they were involved in the whole PMRC debate at the White House, but they didn't spark it, no.

    7. Thou Shalt Always Kill I don't know the band, but someone posted the video on a forum earlier today and I recognised the lyrics from this post.

    25 Sep 2007, 13:55
  • Richaod

    I had to look up the artist for it too. Pretty interesting stuff.

    8. Kate Miller-Heidke- Bored With me 9. Kate Miller-Heidke- Australian Idol 21. Tori Amos- Big Wheel 23. Björk- Oceania

    Okay, here are some clues... One of the singers in 14 went to my school. 20 is clearly about World of Warcraft. 22 is from an Arnie movie. 24 is yet another female singer-songwriter. 26 - classic prog rock 27 contains Bach's Bouree in E minor. 28's vocalist was on Mythbusters and has a six-octave vocal range. Dunno if that helps. :P 29 and 33 are from very familiar songs...

  • JamesJupiter

    I just realised! 24. Kate Bush- Pi :)

    3 Oct 2007, 21:55
  • Richaod

    I was surprised you didn't get that one straight away. :P

    14. The Cat Empire - ahhh SHIT! Friggin... Days Like These, god I can't believe I almost couldn't remember that. 30 - Little Birdy - C'mon C'mon... or is it Come On Come On? I know there's a few songs out there called C'mon C'mon and Come On Come On, I just never remember which applies to which band. I'm making this more complicated than it needs to be aren't I? 31. Meatloaf - Paradise By the Dashboard Light. (Thank you to my uncle that seems to have that CD going EVERY time I go to his house.) PS: Sorry to be anal, but that line in Lost to Apathy, I'm quite sure anyway, is Empty, fragile, weak, not Empty, brittle, weak. Same thing I know, but as a used-to-be huge DT fan I had to step in there :) PPS: I KNOW 40! I do! But it's just... not there!

    Empty, fragile, weak? Maybe he changes it around or something. Good effort.
