The Allman Brothers song is indeed based on Hank Williams, though it's not exactly a cover. House of the Rising Sun isn't an original either (it's an old folk song), although the Animals did make it famous in popular culture.

A thread comment within a quiz with an Alanis Morissette clue correcting a misdiagnosed irony as merely coincidence on a subject unrelated to the Alanis clue...irony, coincidence, or something else?

Dagnabbit. I thought "Duane Allman", then thought no, it has to be the first name that starts with "a".

What is the correct flag for America? I'd put The Union Jack out instead of the stars and stripes. Though American citizens (they were sons of American servicemen station in UK) they met and formed in London and recorded their first album there.

As usual, I know the older acts, but not the newer ones. :) Still pleasantly surprised at how well I did.
