John Lydon should be accepted for Johnny Rotten.

Totally agree.

Feb 21, 2018
I disagree. This quiz is about the name of the singer as known in popular culture, i.e. their stage name. If Lydon is accepted for Rotten then Paul Hewson should also be accepted for Bono and William Bailey for Axl Rose.

Feb 23, 2018
Sorry, but that's not correct. Johnny Rotten has been known/credited for several years as Lydon, even if it was more PiL than Pistols (and if I'm not mistaken, due to a legal dispute with M McLaren over who owned the name Rotten). Bono is probably only known as Paul to his mum

No. No love for Cherone. That was the worst Van Halen album out of them all!

Sid was the basist... and not the original one. He replace Glen Matlock in '77. He was the most historically infamous (thanks to NANCY!), but not the front man.

He did sing on a couple of tracks, granted, but the question asks for the most famous lead singer. He may be famous, or infamous, but not as the lead singer.

I'm surprised Yorke is so low. Radiohead is one of the most popular bands in the world. But I suppose they don't create much media buzz outside of their music; no scandals, crazy relationships, things like that to make people recognize the name.

Radiohead is one of the most popular bands in the world? Really? Maybe at one time they were decent at best. You are right though, they certainly aren't in the news for being whackjobs.
+1
level 71
Apr 30, 2015
I'm not surprised at all. He was one of five I missed. Couldn't come up with Garbage or 2nd Van Halen, both of which I knew but could not get my brain to work at the time. The Clash rings a bell but never would have gotten it. Radiohead? Coldplay? These fall into the category of 'British bands I have heard of but I could not name a song or band member'.

Yorke is the only one I didn't know.

level 59
Feb 20, 2018
Radiohead is worshiped among big-time audiophiles, but they do not have the mass appeal of most of the bands on this list (I think probably only Garbage and Hole are less famous). Their commercial peak was 20 years ago, and as you rightly point out, Thom Yorke has avoided the spotlight.

How come townshend is not an acceptable answer for the lead singer of the who?

Shouldn't Hewson be acceptable for Bono? I think I recall it being accepted in another quiz.

Why not accept Townshend for The Who?

Because he is not their singer. Roger Daltrey is the singer. Pete Townshend is the guitar player.

May 10, 2015
Haha. They are by far the least-known band on this quiz. They were moderately successful in the 90s, but Courtney Love is probably more famous for her ridiculous behavior, her marriage to Kurt Cobain, and even her acting by this point. She is much more famous than the band is.

It's so annoying you accept 'York' for his surname, as I'm typing the next name without realising the 'e' is still on the screen. People should be able to correctly spell the names or get the question wrong IMO.

Mick Jones shared lead vocal duties with Joe Strummer for the Clash. They only released one album without him. He should be accepted, as well.
