Now that's what I call an off-the-wall news item from the BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/articles...n_contentcard2

Godspeed You Black Emperor have changed the position of the exclamation mark in their name over the years; it was at the end up until their fourth album when it moved to the middle. Just thought I'd point out that bit of trivia.

I managed 3, but then again I only knew who 2 of the bands are. Just a sucker for multiple choice quizzes. I really should get a life

The only ones I got wrong were the Russian one and Menswear. My memory seems to be a lot better than I think it is.

Chuffed to say I don't know any of the groups, let alone how they spell their names.

10 blind guesses, and 6 right. Hope my lottery ticket comes out tonight.

Well I know about Guns N Roses and REM, but I got them wrong, the 3 I got right were blind stabs.

I got 8 which I was well pleased with. I never remember that right order of lower and highest case for tUnEyArDs (or whatever!). My favourite punctuation band is Therapy? anyway.
