I even remember the video that went with Waterfalls. It was playing a lot. Also I liked it. One of the handful of songs from the 90s that I actually remember.

When that song came out I was in Navy boot camp and we had to march everywhere we went. And when we marched we always had someone calling out cadence. There were quite a few divisions (us included) that were using the "Waterfalls" tune for cadence.

WHAT. "Waterfalls" is the lowest answer here? Explain yourself, Internet. How are there so many people who are aware of Tupac, but not TLC?

Tupac is by many accounts the greatest rapper of all-time, and the clue gives away his last name. TLC was...a girl group. A very good girl group, but they are nowhere near as significant as Tupac was. Plus the Tupac/Biggie feud really elevated his stature in the general public consciousness. A biopic of his life was released last year...but yeah, also TLC. Sure.

what does their sex have to do with it? It was not girly group like spice girls.

And I think you are overestimating the fame of tupac, people will know the name yes. But he is not as omnipresent as you seem to think.

I agree his name is bigger yes (because it gets repeated, for instance on quizzes like this so the name is kept alive, while tlc is hardly ever mentioned) but your last words/tone is unnecessary.. people that were around in the nineties will have heard of them. (though yes, it is not prompted, your memory is trggered better when half of the answer s allready there, your mind then just autocompletes)

No idea who Toto is but I know that Weird Al Yankovic and Weezer did a cover of that song.

Toto is a rock band originally popular back in the late 70s to early 80s. I like their musicianship. There are many popular bands that are made up of amateur musicians who can only play basic cords and rhythms, but Toto is in a different class. Their original members were all studio musicians who made a living playing for other artists on their recordings. They then got together to form their own group. Their music is a little dated in style, but it's is still worth a listen.

Did really good until the bands and song lyrics popped up. Have no clue what any of those are.

I would say the question about clefs is a little misleading. A 'G' clef is simply one of several clefs which denote where on the stave the note G is to be placed. Typically, this is the G above middle C, though there are exceptions to this (i.e. octave-displaced clefs). The treble clef is indeed a G clef, however not all G clefs are treble clefs. A G clef is only the treble clef when placed on the second line of the stave. The same as not all F clefs are the bass clef, and not all C clefs are the alto clef (or solely used by violists!). However, no other G clefs are used in music today (apart from some violin music randomly being written in the old French violin clef), so the treble clef is the only G clef which is in practical use today. Ridiculously (and probably unnecessarily) pedantic? Almost certainly! But I thought somebody may find this interesting nevertheless...
