In true JetPunk style I would like this opportunity to nitpick XD "In what language was the "Numa Numa" song sung in?" seems redundant. Too many in's I think.

Yep. The second "in" is unnecessary with the first. :D

The 'Numa Numa' song is actually called Dragostea Din Tei - just as an aside. I realise it's more famous as a viral video than as the original song!

My first solo trip overseas was the summer of 2004. I went to Europe and spent most of my time in Poland and Romania. Dragostea din Tea will always remind me of that trip. It was inescapable that year. I didn't think it would catch on in the US. A few months later I started hearing it in Virginia, too.

My most memorable European trip weird earworm tune was "The Rigga-Digga-Ding-Dong Song", which inexplicably got nearly as much air play as Cher's "Believe" in the summer 1999 in southern Croatia. The video is equally peculiar, if you want to amuse/torture yourself.

I had no idea what they meant by "Numa Numa" song. Now it makes sense. Of course I know Dragostea Din Tei...

For one who was a teenager in the 60s, 15/20 ain't bad.

Dubstep isn't a Jamaican music genre--it originates in the UK, but evolved from dub and reggae (which is a Jamaican music genre)...

Yeah I tried that too. To be fair though he didn't really have any commercial success in the 2000s, so wasn't surprised he wasn't accepted.

Oh man, Dragostea Din Tei (aka "Numa Numa"). That really takes me back.

Haha, for the Osbournes question I could only think of Gene Simmon's Family Jewels, but I don't know if he was drug addled or not.

Gene Simmons is famously not drug-addled, in fact he claims to have never indulged in drugs or even cigarettes, and claims never even to have been drunk.

Apparently, Adele doesn't have two l's, and Adelle is not an acceptable answer. I learned something new today.

Any reason some of these questions are worded in the past tragic tense? It makes it sound like the Jonas brothers and Lady Gaga are all deceased, that Coldplay broke up, and that Shakira's hips suddenly started lying at some point. (Kudos on the wording of the Justin Nieber question though! Too bad you couldn't have situated HIM squarely in the past tense.)

I'm here only trying to prove my intellectual superiority by announcing that I have never heard of any of these so called "bands" or "artists".
