good point, but the 50cent piece is clearly visible. only other band with american currency i can think of is Nickelback.

Jesus christ, I thought i knew something about music, but you guys are some smartass cookies. Huge props to whoever came up with
1. Cypurs Hill
2. Dead Kennedys: took me like 5 minutes to spot that
3. Cowboy Junkies: I kept looking at the guy on the right and thinking Dexy's Midnight Runners
4. the Polyphonic Spree: is that the people crossing the street, or was that a mistake?
5. Twisted Sister
6. Great White
7. Deep Purple
8. Traffic

Are the weeds on the drain Rusted Root? or maybe Taproot?
And I dont think someone has mentioned it, but is the plant behind the Queen Bush?

The things I havent seen explained and might have some significance are
-The yellow dude by cornershop
-The blow up doll in the window
-the sack of onions at the bottom corner
-the presence of pineapples
-the streetsign
-the three chicks frollicking along the road.....one more wouldve made it 4 non blondes :(
-the tvs in the front window

Edit: just saw the larger version. What is the blurry thing next to cake and scorpions?

Balla, can you enlighten me as to where Cake and Scorpion are? I can't find them anywhere. :(


look at the poster on the Virgin site ... not the higher quality wallpaper images. The idiots cropped it to fit wallpaper dimensions.

there you'll see a cake on the sidewalk (left bottom..) same goes for Pet shop boys.

Ah, I thought I was going nuts. I knew I'd seen Pet Shop Boys on there somewhere, but couldn't find them anywhere in the pic in the first post.

and by the way, i got like 80 bands :p there is so much stuff u can put in... like, The Shadows... i mean, there are shadows, right? hehe

btw, a lot of people say the bubble gum chick is Blondie, which i think is wrong

I go for From Bubblegum To Sky, makes perfect sense considering that she's "close" to the sky, and the sky is the same color as the gum

And Yah, that cropped one looked really professional, but it cut off like 2-3 clues. Decieving. Anyway, even if the competition is over, I cant let these things go until ive got the full score of them. I think a good signpost is that a band like black flag or the cowboy junkies are about as obscure as it gets

What were the guys with the guitar cases again? Are those the blues brothers? And that damn yellow guy on the corner is still bugging me.

Is that quarter supposed to represent 50 Cent?

I caught Matchbox 20.

This is gay. Mainly because I listen to The Game and Ja Rule all day.
Somewhere, hiding from assult charges or trying to find his credibility, P. Diddy just shed a tear (H)
