This is probably one of the most controversial quizzes I've seen on this site... the radio star getting "killed" in a PotUS song is as much a crime as someone stealing the spotlight!

OBJECTION!! It was The Buggles, and was the first video ever played on MTV. You know, back when they played music and not pregnant teenagers.

I'd forgotten that the Buggles performed the original version; the PotUSoA version is just more mainstream. My bad.

The Buggles version is still far more mainstream, in my opinion.

PotUSoA? Who are they? I know who The Buggles are and I didn't think anyone even covered the song.

I had no idea the Presidents covered this song. I'm gonna have to track that down and check it out. @NekroNeko and anyone else who's not familiar with the group, they had a few hits in the mid-90's such as "Peaches" and "Lump" (which Weird Al parodied as "Gump"), and they also did "Cleveland Rocks" which was used as the theme song to the Drew Carey show for awhile.

I think this all depends when you grew up. For people who came of age in the 90s, the Presidents' version is probably a lot more familiar. People from the generations both before and after more likely recognize the original. By the by, there is an absolutely stunning live performance of it by the Buggles online, from some award show in 2013 or something. They nailed every element of the song, and a lot of the original musicians played the live version. (The Buggles were not a real band. It was just two producers messing around, so all the musicians were hired guns.)

I was born in '93, and I've only ever heard of the Buggles. The question really made me smile - thanks.

Born in 1983, and know at least all of the PotUSA singles, but only have a vague recollection of them covering this song. Definitely a Buggles song, even for someone who came of age in the 90's.

Apollo should also be accepted for the killing of Achilles. Many myths say that he was killed by Apollo who disguised himself as Paris. Others say that Apollo guided the arrow that Paris shot to hit Achilles' weakness. Either way, Apollo was critical in the death of Achilles by most accounts.

ddddan has a point. They were fighting a war, and David took up the task of fighting the "giant". This was no different than killing a man in battle during a war.

I did try just Gretel after "Hansel and Gretel" didn't work, but I wonder if changing it so that any answer that contains "Gretel" would be a good idea.

"Wanted for Crimes Real and Fictional"... Yet the Hamilton question is the only real crime on here? I can envision a "Fictional Crimes" quiz that wouldn't take too long to make.

Mrs. O'Leary's cow did not cause the Chicago fire. The press made it up and destroyed this woman's life. it was an early example of fake news.

Mrs. O'Leary's cow committed the Jack the Ripper murders though so she did deserve some of her misery.

That depends on if you are Christian or not. Although there aren't too many religious quizzes on JetPunk that I've seen.

Being a Christian doesn't alter reality. They might believe it is real, but that doesn't make it so.

Some are obviously mythological that even most (I hope) Christians wouldn't argue they literally happened. Others have no evidence so nothing to suggest they are real.
