    you type in the name of the band you want to be tested on, then when the song loads click on the right track.
    well, i found it really fun.
    it knows some pretty obscure bands as well :hyper:

    (yes i know this will be followed by all you pretentious gits saying "yeah, uh, well, like, it doesn't know monkeycheeseheadrapbonanza therefore both it and you suck")

    the last one i played was ladytron and i got 10/10 with an average score of 4.6 seconds.
    post your scores!
     
  2. I know it must be me, but I can find nowhere to type in a band name nor any games which seem to relate to music. :confused:

    when i click on that link, i get a game. and a space to type in a band name. the game is called "what's that song".
    it has a yellow banner below the logo.
    on the right of the banner you can type in a band name.
     
  4. Interesting - tried the same link again and it worked perfectly!!

    9/10 on Steely Dan in 11.2 secs (average 4.5secs).

    I got 10/10 for Paul Simon and I only had to think about one song ("Have a Good Time"). Maybe later I'll try something challenging when I have time.

    8/10 for Sleepytime Gorilla Musuem and Clutch. I need to do something about that.

    Got all the Horse the Band clips right, it also included clips from A Band Called Horse and I got most of those wrong.

    9/10 for Rasputina

    10/10 for Primus, Led Zep, and The Police

    I just clicked and it loaded up this random artist, Ken Boothe, I got 7/10 for him. I would have gotten more, but some of the tracks didn't load because of licensing problems...so I had to guess.

    Less Than Jake: 9/10

    The Clash: 9/10

    I dig them alot. I was contemplating buying "How I Quit The Forest" for 50 bucks, but I saw on their site that it would be reissued sometime this year so I think I will wait and pay a normal price.

    yes! the reissue will be fantastic!!

    have you bought "a radical recital" yet? it was released two days ago.
    it's a recording of a gig they did on halloween, and contains unreleased tracks, like barracuda!
    i bought it the morning it was released :hyper:

    Not yet but I'll check it out sometime. I found a live video on the net of them playing Barracuda though, it was pretty cool.
     
  19. Well, I'm at green day's 8th, havn't missed any so far, but now it's refusing to play the song. :/.
