Added Adele and took out Akon.

I feel like Akon should be reinstated in place of maybe Arcade Fire. Dude's credentials were STACKED by the end of the 00s decade.

What? No Alvin and the Chipmunks?! They revolutionized the novelty/sped-up-tracks record industry.

The Allman Brothers song is indeed based on Hank Williams, though it's not exactly a cover. House of the Rising Sun isn't an original either (it's an old folk song), although the Animals did make it famous in popular culture.

A thread comment within a quiz with an Alanis Morissette clue correcting a misdiagnosed irony as merely coincidence on a subject unrelated to the Alanis clue...irony, coincidence, or something else?

Dagnabbit. I thought "Duane Allman", then thought no, it has to be the first name that starts with "a".

Seems odd to not accept just their first names if that's the part that starts with A.

That was the last one I got for that very reason! I just couldn't get past Wham! in my head.

Wham! did Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. Avicii's Wake Me Up is the one that goes 'So wake me up when it's all over. When I'm wiser and I'm older' or something

You have to give the whole name except for Aretha Franklin - maybe make all answers consistent?

Surname should be enough. Also everyone knows Aretha, not so sure of those others?

What is the correct flag for America? I'd put The Union Jack out instead of the stars and stripes. Though American citizens (they were sons of American servicemen station in UK) they met and formed in London and recorded their first album there.

I would argue they nailed their colours pretty firmly to the mast by calling themselves America!

ACDC are a funny one. Described as Australian although Malcolm and Angus Young were born in Scotland. Bon Scott (not a Scot) was Australian but his replacement as lead singer (and arguably the better known) is Brian Johnson, a Geordie (who used to sing for the band Geordie)
