Actually, they were called the Jacksons after they left Motown and went to Epic. Motown owner Berry Gordy wouldn't allow them to keep the name "Jackson Five" because it was trademarked. So, they just dropped the "Five" and renamed themselves the Jacksons.

John Lennon didn't make any solo records after the Quarrymen. He joined the Beatles, then went solo. Dumb statement.

It wasn't a dumb statement; the instructions state to name the groups they sang with before going solo, but not immidiately before going solo. In other words, the Quarrymen is technically a correct answer.

Beyoncé is one of today's idols (people call her Queen Bey, the Queen, etc.) and Destiny's Child had some pretty popular music before she left (Survivor, Single Ladies, etc.). Fergie was a part of the Black Eyed Peas (I Gotta Feeling, Boom Boom Pow, My Humps, etc.) which was in practically every pre-party playlist and dance mix for the past 6 years. Her biggest solo song is Fergalicious, which is pretty popular as well. Justin Timberlake is way more popular than Fergie. He rose to fame with N' Sync (their most popular song was Bye Bye Bye) and since then has released numerous hits and at least one album. Hope this helped! :)

Yes, they made a quiz and some people who went solo are not on it. It's not the end of the world. No Debbie Harry?! No Pete Townshend?! No Rod Stewart?! No Brandon Flowers?! No Lionel Ritchie?! No Natalie Merchant?! It would go on forever. It's not the quizmaker's job to cater to your particular tastes. There are lots of people who could be on here. This is who you get. If you don't like it, make your own quiz.
