What band am I thinking of? (#4)
Strawman kicked some ass on that last one, so I'm going to have to make this one tougher. Go ahead, ask away. I'm ready. :)

Previous answers (I will not repeat):

Guns n Roses
The Police
The Temptations

5. And I wouldn't necessarily classify them as having "hits" either.
But you've definitely heard of this band.

17. They formed in the early 90's, but I would say they had the bulk
of their success in the later 90's.

46. DING DING DING DING DING!!!
Very, very good!! I thought this one would take much longer. How did you figure it out, if you don't mind me asking? Or was it a guess?

Anyway, here's the requisite stupid picture of me:



Now, NO MORE! Y'all have to wait until Tuesday! Patience is a virtue. :D

I'm actually a big fan of theirs, plus you mentioned they recently reunited, so that's how I figured it out.

And I love my prize! :loveya:

50. Good one. Excellent band
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 10:47 AM by Strawman
Saw them in the early nineties touring for Gentlemen. That was the last of their stuff I really know. Think I'm gonna download "Don't Forget the Alcohol" off of Itunes. That's a great song.

on Edit: The song I'm thinking of is Rebirth of the Cool. Looks like all they have on Itunes is some remix. Damn.

52. You must get 1965.
That album is simply SEX. Sex in a CD case. Yum. I haven't had the pleasure of seeing them live, but I would really like to.

Greg Dulli's side project -- I heard "Powder Burns" was very good.

56. Oh, that sucks.
Everyone's been complaining about how lame itunes' selection is. I am still uploading my damned collection, so I haven't had to deal with it yet. Not to mention the ex has 126 gigs on his external server that he is going to copy for me. Hopefully I'll never have to buy anything from itunes. :D

EDIT: Besides, didn't they have a female lead singer?

33. They broke up for a while and reunited recently.
And they have all done solo projects, not particularly successfully.

36. That is a tough question. I really don't know how to answer that.
They are definitely a rock band. Does that help? I'm not trying to be obtuse, I'm just stuck.
