Music meme

Gakked from green_queen. Did this one once before, but it's fun. Guess the artist/bands! Comments are screened. (And no, I had no idea what some of these people looked like either. Good luck!)

ETA: All guessed (except for the mystery band, which was Lo-Fidelity Allstars, not exactly a household name, yes?) The winner is: philomel, with 14 correct; and a very close second is themoononastick with 13 correct! They both nailed some very obscure artists, so hat's off! And hey, dawnybee, you and I need to talk music more often! :)

Thanks to everyone for playing! I added links to video clips so you can see just who the hell some of the more obscure ones are! :)

SEMISONIC: "Closing Time" vid. Awww, I still love this song. *waxes nostalgic over the boy I had a crush on back then* (Every year needs a poppy, catchy sing-along-to-on-the-radio tune like this or "Shimmer" or "Hanging by a Moment," or "Meant to Live?" yes? :D)

(There are no images out there of this group. I had to cap this from one of their videos. GOOD LUCK. Hint, the song has appeared in many films and shows. Oh, and they sound a lot like Band #1 or, you know, vice versa.)
LO-FIDELITY ALLSTARS: "Battleflag" video (I'm sure you recognize this song! "Tell me is it time to get down/on your motherfucking knees..."
Guessed by no one. (Not that I expected anyone to guess them. Incorrect guesses: Muse, one of the Gallagher brothers (right era and nationality!) But don't they sound a lot like Kasabian, if you listen to them, back to back?

Is #18 the Cranberries? And 20 one of the Gallagher brothers? (No, I can't tell Noel from Liam.) 15 looks like Bob Marley; 14 might be Aerosmith, except the guy's mouth looks narrower than Steve Tyler's... 6 most definitely is not U2, although the Edge's "Joshua Tree"-era hat iz pastede on, yay! Nor is twelve U2, although Front Guy looks more than a bit like Larry Mullen (Jr.), albeit slightly stockier.

On an unrelated note (but something I thought I should bring up ASAP), I realized, as I was replying to comments on a Desmond/Sawyer fic, that this snippet:

“You’ve been in prison, brother?” he asks, mostly out of confusion at the silence.
Sawyer stops unbuttoning his shirt and gives Desmond a sharp look. “How’d you know?”
He realizes he can’t answer that. “Word gets around. Common recognition, maybe.”
Sawyer gives a disbelieving snort...


was redolent of something from your (absolutely brilliant) "Warm Beer":

“I spent some time in prison, you know?”
“Yeah, so did I.” Sawyer nearly groaned in frustration as Desmond held him by the wrist, refusing to touch him or let him touch himself. “What the fuck does that matter?”


The resemblance was unintentional on my part, and I've since inserted an author's note to the effect of all this at the beginning. Nonetheless, I should have caught it sooner and run the exchange by you first. Let me know if you want me to edit or remove the fic - that was very careless on my part, and I apologize for my lack of oversight.

Answers are up! You got Bob Marley right. :) And NO ONE got the mystery band, I certainly had no idea what they looked like and they're pretty obscure but I knew someone was going to guess Liam or Noel Gallagher! :) Same era and nationality!

And hon, don't worry about the fic. We all overlap unconsciously all the time, I'm sure! You're sweet to check in with me. *hugs*
