I'm going out on a limb here, but I don't think 'bouncepasture' is a real world! Figured it out, though...

I thought it was some French word I'd never heard of. Only after I saw the answers did the lightbulb go off.

only reason I guessed it was bison - could only think of one band that fit

Yeah, the only other one I can think of is Buffalo Tom, and bouncepasture doesn't quite work there.

I'd probably be more excited for their music if their name really was Bison Bouncepasture. That's just an awesome name.

This is AWESOME!! Although just to nitpick, "Nine" in Nine Inch Nails is always spelled out. I don't know if you'd want to change the clue to spell out "23", but I personally don't think it's necessary.

I made this clue, too. On my quiz I spelled out the band name. I guess QM wanted the clue and name to appear more symmetrical.

Thanks for introducing me to the music of Trent Reznor. I'd never heard of him before your recommendation on another quiz.

Good quiz. I find with these I either get them straight off or I'm very unlikely to get them. As you guys are a knowledgeable bunch, save me a trip to Google, who are the fourth answer?

The led in Led Zeppelin is referring to lead, as in the metal, so the synonyms off. But whatever.

I made that clue. I know that they didn't mean led as in directed, but they misspelled "lead"... "led" is the past participle of the verb "to lead"..

'flesh marionettes' is possibly the most disturbing band name I've ever heard...and 'meat puppets' really isn't much better.

Just a thought, Panic! at the Disco fans typically refer to the group as "Panic." If "Rage" is a write-in for Rage Against the Machine, then I expect that "Panic" should be enough as well. After all, if you get that far, you probably already know the full name.

Agree. I thought it was odd I only had to type the word Rage.

This has been fixed. On this quiz, the full band names will be required for both bands. On other quizzes, we'll accept just "Rage" or "Panic".

They're all pretty old. I think only one of these bands started more recently than 2000.

I must be the perfect age for this quiz. This was a very fast five points, and it reminded me of a lot of great music from my younger days. Fantastic quiz! I really enjoyed it.

"Fury Against the Apparatus" and "Destroying Gourds" are hilarious, and actually better than their real counterparts. Fact.
