Great quiz. Could you consider accepting Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) for the rapper who starred in a movie? Glover played Aaron Davis in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which grossed well over $300 million. I'm familiar with the other valid answers, but he was the only one that came to mind while I was taking the quiz.

I was surprised that Britney Spears didn't count, but apparently the official name of the song is "(You Drive Me) Crazy".

Speaking of them, Apple Computer's name and logo were lifted from The Beatles' Apple Records. You'd think they wouldn't have the gall to have a division called Apple Music.

It's not a name in the title, at least. Penny Lane is a street, not a person.

Probably should add a caveat on the Best Metal Performance Grammy question that it only accepts answers since 1990 after the category was split in two (hard rock/heavy metal). Otherwise, Jethro Tull should be accepted for their infamous 1989 win over Metallica for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental. I actually think Jethro Tull should just be accepted, since 1989 was the first year for the category anyway...

I missed that question because i guessed Tull because i knew that was right, but didn't get it, and couldn't seem to land on one of the right answers. Personally i don't want a caveat...i want Jethro Tull to be accepted.

Jethro Tull was my first guess too. I can't ever forget how controversial that win was!

Robert Johnson is another famous musician who died at 27. Not as famous to the average person as the names listed, but he is a household name among guitar players and blues enthusiasts. He's always near the top of lists of great guitar players, and Clapton has been shamelessly ripping him off for his whole career. You should add his name.
+1
Level 65
Sep 22, 2020
Blues are definitely the progenitor of rock, but the question asks for rock or pop star, and I don't think Johnson quite qualifies under either of those two genres.

I think Ice Cube should be included in the rapper movie question. 22 Jump Street grossed $331M

A music quiz I got 100% on for a change. Though I admit I had to pause for a while and think about the rapper one. I was thinking "what was the name of that rapper in The Dark Knight?" and eventually realized that he's not a rapper.

Can you accept Jeff Buckley for question about death at 27? Or is he not famous enough?

I was surprised not to see LL Cool J and Eminem on this list (the movies I thought would've made $300M were well short of that). Ice Cube though was in at least two. 22 Jump Street grossed $331M, and XXX: Return of Xander Cage grossed $346M.

Méringue is also a type of music which originated in the Caribbean, but it isn't the same as merengue and I suspect that's the one QM was going for
