"Cryptic Band/Artist Names"

We had this category last night at live trivia. It was the first time (and the last time) that they'll ever do it. Somewhat frustrating but certainly challenging. We were told that some of the bands/artists were international so we were clueless on a number of them. Here are the first few, with an example to begin with:

SPRING SUMMER AUTUMN WINTER (Answer - The Four Seasons)

ENTICEMENTS

SWAY NOT IN NUN

USED TO BE NO MORE

PRETTY NAUGHTY NUMBER

SUN CASTS THEM

UNCIVILIZED EDEN

THEY PUBLICALLY ANNOUNCE

PRIMITIVE SHRIEK

AMERICAN EMERGENCY NUMBER

DULL CINZANO

MURDERING GAG

SWAYING SAD LEVIS

TAIL OF THE ALPHABET TWICE ON HAT

3 FOOT FEATHERED FRIENDS

Killing Joke


The Yard Birds

Correct again. I had never heard of Killing Joke & Swinging Blue Jeans.

We only had about 10-12 minutes to answer 35 of these. There were about a dozen teams playing, and the best score was 18 out of 35.

Killing Joke was a punk band and are pretty decent.
