Lazy Day Silliness

I've been so busy the last couple of days that I haven't had time to sit down and write anything. So instead of posting nothing, I thought I'd put this up here.

I got it in email a couple of days ago. It's been around for some months, but this is the first I've seen of it.

Click on it to enlarge.

It's an ad from Virgin Digital--The 72-Band Campaign. There are supposed to be 72 (some say 74) bands in this picture. So far, all I've been able to figure out are:

Alice In Chains
Guns N Roses
Smashing Pumpkins
Matchbox 20
Rolling Stones
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Eagles

Anybody else? What the heck are those Gorillas? And what in the world is the Queen holding in her hands?

Never mind. I just figured it out. The Sex Pistols. Yikes.

Man, you guys are good. What are the fairies?

Blondie's up on a balcony.

I don't know about Green Day.

So that's who's pictured above JFK! I thought it was Reagan which didn't make any sense.

Green Day is on the calendar next to the fruit stand.

Mia said...

See now when I saw the gorillas I thought of The Monkeys! lol

I'm about to blow your minds:

Pile of smiling lemons
Rambo's torso
Giant quarter
Fuzzy man in pink shirt
The Pixies

All indie-rock bands, ofcourse.

Attila The Mom said...

You're making that up, aren't you? LOL

shirley said...

My last comment was a joke. Except The Pixies - that's what the fairies are.

I thought it was an obvious joke, but my boyfriend was astonished that he hadn't "heard of so many new bands - wow!" So I thought I'd fess up about being a wiseass. Time to go make fun of him!

shirley said...

Attila - you caught me! ;)

Liz said...

Pile of smiling lemons is The Lemonheads
Giant quarter is Fifty Cent
Fuzzy man in pink shirt is Blur

There are also the Blondie, White Zombie, The Doors, Spoon, Black Flag, Crowded House, The Eels, Dead Kennedys, and Cake.

Liz said...

Oh and The Gorillaz - or The Monkees depending on your preference.
