    Like today's JUMBLE in the paper, unscramble the letters to figure out what the real name of the band or solo artist is.

    (NOTE: The spaces between words and their sensitive upper/lower cases have been altered as well, for more difficulty. There is also some unnecessary punctuation. Muhahahahahahahahaha!!!)

    1. Revenu, Carryo Owl?
    2. Nan dreirt head wif
    3. Eel, grey hey care!
    4. "Boot nud"
    5. Yav real wind I ock
    6. Sir, on a nrov m?
    7. Wet, peer rah thor.
    8. "Lill pig shasp"
    9. Stew The Van Bamdad
    10. Sit on the meat P.T.
    11. Vive yarn, guats. Ahe?
    12. "Ew, tire on sved!"

    First one to get 'em all wins a prize.

    Good luck.
     
  2. How common are these band names/ solo artists?
    I love anagrams, so I'll probably spend the rest of the night trying to figure these out.






    Mr Mojo Risin

    Try this one:
    Old West Action.
    Clue, some ones name.

    Well, most of them have had at least one hit single. There is one obscure reference in there. Most of the others are artists/band names known by most.
     
  4. 1. Revenu, Carryo Owl? = Royal Crown Revue (credit to One&Only)

    2. Nan dreirt head wif = Earth Wind and Fire

    3. Eel, grey hey care! = Eagle Eye Cherry

    4. "Boot nud" = No Doubt

    5. Yav real wind I ock = Wierd Al Yankovic (credit to One&Only)
    6. Sir, on a nrov m? = Van Morrison

    7. Wet, peer rah thor. = Weather Report

    8. "Lill pig shasp" = Phillip Glass

    9. Stew The Van Bamdad = Dave Matthews Band

    10. Sit on the meat P.T. = The Temptations

    11. Vive yarn, guats. Ahe? = Stevie Ray Vaughn

    12. "Ew, tire on sved!" = Stevie Wonder (credit to One&Only)



    I'm getting tired, and not thinking as sharp.
     
  5. I think I'll make "Stew the van, Bamdad" my new signature.
     
  6. Anyboy have an idea for number 10?
     
  7. Well, I got 8 of 12 so far, anyone else gonna give me a hand, I'll share the prize! :D

















    unless its something really neat, then :p
     
  8. 1. Royal Crown Revue
    2. Earth, Wind and Fire
    3. Eagle Eye Cherry
    4. No Doubt
    5. Weird Al Yankovic
    6. Van Morrison
    7. Weather Report
    8. Phillip Glass
    9. Dave Matthews Band
    10. ?
    11. Stevie Ray Vaughn
    12. Stevie Wonder
     
  9. All right One&Only!

    Now if we can just figure out #10... "Sit on the meat P.T."

    I have no idea.
     
  10. Awww, man...I have NO idea! I turned this one inside and out, and I even fell asleep for a few minutes because of this one. I think my brain is done for the night...but I think we're close!!!!
    Oh, SOOOOO close, too!

    :confused:
     
  11. Jazzbo, we got it knocked out in 5 hours! :D Some of those were tough. I was stumped for awhile on a few of them.

    A year's supply of tap water. Feel free to go to the nearest kitchen sink to claim your prize.
     
  13. Man, THAT ain't a prize! That's just TORTURE! Have you TRIED the tap water lately? ;)

    MAN, I was laughing my arse off when ChaosGwar figured out your Number 10. I felt like such an idiot!!

    :)
