A friend asked me to put together a quiz aimed at a more youthful audience, covering roughly hits from the past five years. I may as well share it here: if the regular visitors don't their MTV from their VH-1, perhaps their kids might like to have a crack at an intros quiz. Family friendly, I am. (The illustration on the right? A Rolling Stone cover from July 2005, more or less the midpoint of the time period covered by this quiz. That Ms Alba... she isn't very ugly at all.)

Intros Quiz 2003-08
Oh, and while I'm here, the recent flurry of post deletions on this blog still puzzle me, but I've noticed that three of the deleted posts included links to songs by Prince (two of them on perpetually screwed ZShare). The artist formerly known as pretty damn good has stated that he objects to his music being featured on blogs. It's a shame that Prince's people acted without asking me to remove the offending links. Way to piss off a fan, Prince. Our little hero has not created one decent CD in the past 15 years, so my consumer boycott of Prince albums will have no effect. But even if he makes another great album, I'll be damned if I buy it. Consider me an ex-fan of Prince. Another act that has asked their blogging fans (!) not to review their album is – here's a surprise – Metallica. Happily, that outfit of wankbuckets are unlikely to ever feature on this blog. I'm delighted to declare that I own nothing by them, and I wouldn't give those overblown pricks more time of the day than I already have wasted writing half of this paragraph.
