There are 75 74 bands represented in this illustration. Let’s see if we can list them all.

An even BIGGER version may be found here.
Let’s say up to five bands per person per turn, ok? When a few people have responded after you feel free to take another turn. I’m sure some of you are fully capable of naming all 74 but I’m going for group participation. 🙂

  24. leevin says:

    Could the spoon represent the band “Spoon?” I think they have a website: http://spoontheband.com.

    58. Spoon
    59. Jewel (next to the fruit stand)
    60. Blues Brothers (the two dudes in black)
    And yesterday, I swore I saw a Cake somewhere, but it’s not in the image I’m pulling up now.

  25. Josie says:

    SPOON! Like how obvious what that one?
    You’re right about
    61. Cake
