I think a better name for a jam band would be "Peach". Mmm.

Please add 'bop' for bebop. They're synonymous.

Ohhh yeah good point! Too bad 3 and 5 aren't synonymous. (One of these days I will start reading the titles to quizzes!)

Who are you calling "he"? The Bird?

bbopp probably, sounds closer.
Level 49

Actually, they are not. Bop is from a slightly later era than bebop. Art Blakey is from the late 50s, while Bird played with Dizzy much earlier in the 40s.

The band Chicago also has albums titled 19 and 21. And they were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame this year, so they are certainly well-known enough to be an obvious answer for old people to come up with.

I think Chicago has more than 5 letters, so that should clue you to go with Adele instead.

Plus, if the answer was Chicago, then La bohème would be an operc, and Misters Vedder's and Van Halen's first name would be "Oddie" (which, actually, I kinda like!).

Also, technically the Chcago albums are Chicago 19 and Chicago 21, while Adele's are simply 19 and 21, like in the question.

Since Wikipedia is always right, they have Britney Spear's "Toxic" as 2003.

Me with my thinking cap on: " I know Ben and Jerry's is a Vermont-based ice cream 'band'...could they have branched out?"

If Heart is on a quiz, it's a good quiz.
Level 75

No idea what the Britney Spears song was, but triad fit with the next one, and when that didn't work I couldn't think of anything else.

"The Heist" was not actually Macklemore's first album. It was the first Album of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Macklemore solo however released "The language of my world" as far back as 2005.

Level 52

Is Macklemore really that relevant in the music world to be on this quiz? Tons of rappers more deserving than that footnote

Beebop should be allowed.

don't take this as nitpicky, but a chord can be played with two notes, like a power chord

i suggest just saying a group of chords played together typically in the harmony
