You caught me. Unfortunately, it's really hard to find good pictures with a free license. And the cost to license professional images is astronomical. Like $175 for a single image. JetPunk barely makes any money so I guess you'll have to deal with the Katy Perry photo!

2020 update. Last year I went through and updated about 1000 quizzes that had the most egregiously over-used thumbnails. The number of free images available continues to grow but is still very small.

To answer the question about making money on JetPunk. The answer is volume. My favorite SNL ad parody ever. https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/first-citiwide-bank-change-ii/n9703 . I knew I was a nerd after bursting out laughing as a 12 year old and my friend I was watching with was lost.

QM - Okay, dumb question for the day....Does our simply clicking on adverts on the quiz pages generate $$$ for JetPunk, or does more need to happen for it to result in revenue for JP?

I love Kansas and was pleasantly surprised to see them on this quiz. I only know them from Supernatural because of Carry On (My) Wayward Son becoming the anthem for the whole fandom.

These quizzes are mostly teaching me that I've got a 1960-2010 window for knowledge. Before that (apart from classical) and after that, I do rather poorly.

Seems like there ought to be somebody in that gap from 1987 to 2003 - but I'll admit I couldn't find much. Maybe Kris Kross, or Karyn White??

Kenny's passing was definitely noted in my area. After appearing at a local rodeo in the 1970s and learning about a project to help children, he was instrumental in the building and continued expansions of the Kenny Rogers Cerebral Palsy Center in southeast MO which later became the Kenny Rogers Children's Center and helped children with all sorts of special needs. He continued to do benefit concerts to support the center which provides needed services in the middle of nowhere to about 350 children annually. RIP, Kenny. You did good.

I thought sure that Nat King Cole would've been on here. Then I realized "King" wasn't actually part of his real name. Then again, it IS part of the moniker he's known by.

What about Kula Shaker, a 90s Britpop psychedelic band who would almost certainly be accused of cultural appropriation if they were still famous.
