I hated that too. Not that they're not one of my favorite bands, but I have a few songs of theirs on my iTunes, and it kills me to see misspelled names of some of these artists!

Okay, changed that one. But I'm not going to change "Fun" to "fun." As far as I'm concerned, stylizations are optional.

Yet another correction: "50 Cent" starts with a 5, not an F. Spelled out, it'd be an F, but his official title doesn't include a single F. I'm not saying he should be removed from the quiz, but another footnote should be added, at the very least.

I know it's the quizmaker's choice what to include and what to leave out, but maybe make a second quiz with a possibility of: The Fray, Fenech-Soler, The Feeling, Foster the People, and The Fratellis.

indie music is indie music because typically, people do not know about it. That entire quiz would have guesses hovering in the 10-30% range.

I think the Fratellis are very popular in Europe, but the others...yeah. The Fray was popular for like ten months in the mid-2000s. That's a reach. Foster the People is also too obscure, I think, but they're really good.

I gave up on music radio, and thus modern music, about 15 years ago, but I was still surprised not to see the Fratellis, Faith no more (not so modern, i know), and even the likes of Foreigner. That and my limited knowledge meant I stink at this quiz.

It's a stretch to say that Fatboy Slim began in 79. He took that nickname and began his solo career around 96, which would be much more relevant.

Flo Rida got his rap name from his home state of Florida. He just split it in half. He deserves recognition just for that.

I don't really know his music, but it's a sight more creative than "Lil' [whatever]," which is what seemingly half the artists in the rap game call themselves.

To my understanding, they're the only ones who have access to the photo library, but if you know some coding tricks, you can be able to pull it off. For example, here's the American flag:

What I did was I right-clicked on one of the flags in the hints, opened it in a new tab, copied the link, and then put wrote it like this: < img src="https://www.jetpunk.com/img/user-photo-library/89/892037c361-235.png" > (Remove the spaces, except for the space between img and src)
