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.

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.

Had no idea what this was. I might have got it had it said something like fountpasture, which is a synonym better fitting where the word comes from.

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"..

If people alter words it does not mean they misspelled it. HIghly unlikely it was a misspelling. Pretty sure it was on purpose, there are tons of bands out there with a slight variation on words. (Even if you don't count the ones that put "z" at the end of words instead of "s") it is almost sort of the thing to do when you make a band. Do something fancy with the words

Maybe you are unfamiliar with homonyms and English spelling. Or you're part of an insane buffoon mob.

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

Never heard of it, so my only guess was “skin dolls”; still pretty scary stuff.

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".

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