I once heard that the B-52's got their name from the 1952 beehive hairdo, but could the planes in the picture be B-52 bombers, and represent the B-52's?

You guys are right on with the B-52's.

I was able to find a lot of what everyone listed last night after posting.

My additions:



Yellowman (reggae singer)
The Postal Service (80's)
Skinny Puppy
Cake
The Pet Shop Boys
Thompson Twins
Phish
Talking Heads


And probably, by far, the most ambiguous one of the bunch:

Creedence Clearwater Revival (the religious looking group in the back).

I want to say that the blonde is perhaps Blondie too.

Trying to win that Alienware PC, eh? I'm on to you.

I actually came up with The Black Crowes for that one. (Seeing as there are only 2 and don't appear to be counting or have been counted - and of course the emphasis on them being black :p).

Madonna, I can agree with. Where's the "President" one? :confused:

Well I'm not absolutely sure, but the men on the posters to the left of "Madonna" are two presidents, are they not?:confused:

Well I'm not absolutely sure, but the men on the posters to the left of "Madonna" are two presidents, are they not? The pictures of the guys next to the Madonna would be John F. Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. They represent 'The Dead Kennedys' in this picture. An old punk band from the 80's. And a rather good one I might add. Btw, not trying to be a smart alec here, but Bobby Kennedy was never president. He ran for president, but was shot to death while campaigning in Los Angeles, Ca. :( I forget what year though. But the picture of the Madonna definitely represents 'Madonna' the singer. ;) It can't possibly represent anyone else. That's one more added to the list. How many have been found now?

:thumbsup: Oh, okay, thanks. :D
I never liked history and in the 80's I wasn't really occupied with memorizing band names. :o

That's cool. The only reason I know anything about history is because I like watching the History Channel. It's more entertaining to me than history class ever was. But we need someone to go through the somewhat arduous and tedious task of counting and posting (by number) how many bands have been found so far.
