Album Covers

OK, music-heads. Help out (and help yourself out).

Thanks to cyanidesgirl, I'm hooked into this damn contest now. XFM (an online radio based in the UK) is doing their "Xmas Cover Quiz", which is basically identifying a shitload of album covers by a little cropped piece of it. With the help of a her and another, I'm up to 47 out of 72...and now I'm stuck. I got all the ones I knew and scoured my own CD collection...alas, so many of them are new "alternative" (man, I hate that term) bands that I don't know. however, I hit up Amazon.com and just dug through the sections for those bands and followed the "people who bought this also bought..." links (amazing how many I found that way). Between that and the help of others...now I'm asking you. Step up to the mic!

You can find the quiz here. Here's the ones I have so far:

1. Bruce Springsteen - Born in the USA
2. Madonna - Like a Prayer
3. Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
4. The Ramones - Rocket to Russia
5. The White Stripes - White Blood Cells
6. snow patrol - final straw

20. jet - get born
21. The Beatles - Revolver

23. PJ Harvey - Rid of Me
24. The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

28. prodigy - always outnumbered never outgunned
29. the vines - winning days

32. modest mouse - good news for people who love bad news
