🤪 Stir Crazy Antidote #13 - it's a music quiz pop-pickers

Music Quiz - Sort of

This should give you 10 mins of ‘fun’.

Below you have 30 pop groups encoded using emojis. Name them.

Do Not…

Do not post individual answers as it will just ruin the thread for the millions of other Sotonians that login daily to ignore these threads I create.

Do not hover over the emojis or look at the post text as it will give you the name of the emoji. Use your eyes and intellect only.

Only Post…

Only post your answers once you have got at least 15 guesses and I will let you know what is right and what is wrong.

Fair Warning

  1. The Bletch’s decision is final
  2. Some of these are dodgy
  3. I’m told the colour is wrong on 13 as a result I will accept two answers for that
  4. 18 is tougher than the rest and if you ultimately don’t like the answer, blame my boss
  5. The Bletch’s decision is final
