The ABC Artist Challenge [A Guest Post by Ryan]

Each of the letters is the first letter of a band’s name (ignoring articles). Each of the letters comes from the album art. There was one exception, where the band does not have its name on its EP. In that case, it is taken from a promotional picture. Can you guess the bands?

Thanks Ryan!

          1. I know what music you like, having gotten a few CDs from you, and that’s why I’m not even attempting to guess these. šŸ™‚ I like the music you send, but I don’t know half the groups, so I know I wouldn’t know any of these. šŸ™‚

            HUGS….

            1. Plus I don’t have many albums now, what with iTunes, and even when I DID have CDs cassettes whatever, I never paid much attention to the cover.

              HUGS….

    1. Ivoryline, Paramore, Taking Back Sunday, The Used – Correct!!

      I’m glad to see they aren’t all impossible.

  1. NOOO! I knew Paramore and Taking Back Sunday and FDot stole them!! The V looks like the plain “Vampire Weekend” font but doesn’t look like the album cover from the two albums I know. If you want me to cheat, I can probz get more.

    1. Paramore, Taking Back Sunday, and The Used appear to be the most popular. There are some left that are 1/2 to 1/10 as popular as those three.

  2. Relient K, Green Day, Switchfoot, Hard-Fi, The Downtown Fiction, Adele, McFly, Sparts The Rescue, Mayday Parade, The Maine, Every Avenue, Punk Goes, Boys Like Girls, Jay Brannan, Justin Nozuka, Kalin and Travis Laurent Acoustic, 3 Doors Down, Oktober Guard, The Johnson Twins, Fall Out Boy
