Not sure if some of you have seen this before, but I've never got all of them and wanted to see if we could collectively. This image holds the names of 75 popular bands in picture form. Tell what the band name is that you find and where you see it.

are you talking about that yellow guy standing in front of the pet shop being the skinny puppy?

also, I was reaching for presidents of the US, it was worth a shot.

since these are virgin records' artists, I think we could narrow it down a bit as to what's missing (I dont know if they are included in this picture, I'm just listing some other famous virgin records artists):

the beatles

the stone roses

the clash

the cure

public enemy

neil young

CSN&Y

stevie wonder

metallica (maybe portrayed by all the metal in the picture?)

elton john

bjork

john coltrane

pearl jam

air (maybe the air in the picture that the people breathe?)

michael jackson

janet jackson

jimi hendrix

bob marley

simon & garfunkel

the who

alanis morissette

REM

pink floyd

the smiths

love

miles davis

the velvet underground

nirvana

oasis

bruce springsteen

david bowie

bob dylan

fleetwood mac

the band

marvin gaye

The puzzle was put out by Virgin, but many if not most of the bands were never signed by Virgin.

I am pretty sure there is an assumption that any given item in the picture stands for only one band. For example, I'd say that the little dog isn't rattdog, but skinny puppy. Anyone want to sort out the list for multiple bands for any one item?

well, then the B52s, jet, and wings would be the first ones to be looked at, as they have 3 bands in one pic.

of course, you could always make the case that "pink" isnt a band, but a person, so she wouldnt count. so is eminem, 50 cent, blondie, jewel, madonna, and seal. but then, why did they have those obvious signs in there for them? I mean, they are very obvious.

prince, of course, you could say it's prince and the revolution, I guess.

I think the single person artists are ok. 50 Cent, Prince, and Madonna are definitely there, so I would guess Pink is ok. I am guessing that the airplanes represent the B-52's rather than jet or wings. All 3 are good guesses, but the image is obviously trying to be a B-52 and with more than 1 of them - well ... I think jet would be a single jet.

yeah, phish.

and I do think that the planes could be more than one thing, I dont see why at least "wings" couldnt be included since there are more than just one wing.

Because the gist of the puzzle is one band for each image. It's a best fit kind of thing.

Yeah, look at the list that is there. Iron Maiden, Rolling Stones already there.

Yellowman - that is a great one. I've never been able to figure that guy out.

i know theres only one but could "snakes and ladders" be acceptible i looked it up and found them. there has to be something with the watermelon with sunglasses right? and wings could refer to the eagles wings too.

I really need to take the time to figure out how many we actually have here.

Watermellon with glasses is Blind Mellon

Snake is Whitesnake i'm pretty sure.

Eagles is definately what they are getting at with the eagles. Again we're assuming each image stands for only one band.

I don't know if this has been said, but the pink scissors are "scissor sisters" (they sing "I don't feel like dancing")
