But "Pavement" is not "British" for Sidewalk. Pavement is ANY hard man-made surface. The most common term used for the US Sidewalk is "Footpath", but there's no musical act known as that

As a British road engineer - Growing up and in general, to friends etc I'd just say "Pavement" for footpath and "Road" for road. In my job however its "Footway" and "Carriageway".

"Pink" should actually be "P!nk". The text doesn't need to be changed (although that'd be greatly preferred and appreciated), but at the very least, please accept "pnk" as an acceptable answer.

I guess I'll allow "pnk", but these stylizations are really annoying. I'm looking at you, Ke$ha.

The week for frat recruitment is called Rush week. I didn’t get it either, as I could only think of Greek week, which is wrong, but at least is also frat-related.

Many people seem to be thinking of a musical group and then looking for a clue to match them. I never heard of several of these bands, so I worked from the clues and got all but three of them - even though I didn't know the singer or band. Thanks for making a band quiz that gave me a chance.

I spent way too much time trying to figure out what female monarch was also a band name. "Elizabeth" no, "Victoria" no, "Beatrix", no "Anne" no, "Mary" no. I guess you can figure out where it's going. The greatest voice in rock in roll is mocking me from his grave.

Nope, there's not, but it's still an usher at the wedding, not a valet, bellhop, concierge, maid, maître d', Led Zeppelin, 2Pac, a Shondelle, Bette Midler nor Gil Scott Heron.
