  1. If you asked me, on the Tesla question…first album, Mechanical Resonance. “Lil’ Suzy”. In my opinion!

    As far as I know, W.A.S.P. stands for nothing but in the 80’s people used to assume it was “We Are Sexual Perverts”! Ahh, the 80’s…”Knights In Satan’s Service” was another popular assumption!

  2. Close but not the answer. The album was Psychotic Supper and Your WASP answer was correct. W.A.S.P. did stand for We Are Sexual Perverts. Nice Job…happy new year!

  3. Ok…so I did not receive as much feedback on this post as I would have liked…anyways I will give the answers to the first ten trivia questions now.

    1)Psychotic Supper was the name of the album that produced the hit single by Tesla.

    2)Wham was the first band to produce the 80’s hit Careless Whisper. George Michael left Wham soon after and went on to have a solo career.

    3)Weezer produced the hit single Island in the Sun.

    4)The 80’s Metal Band W.A.S.P. initials originally stood for We Are Sexual Perverts.

    5)Twisted Sister was the Heavy Metal band that produced the album A Very Twisted Christmas which covered many famous Christmas Carols.

    6)Tommy James and the Shondells was the original band to produce the Single Crimson and Clover.

    7)Head Over Heels was the most famous song that was written by Tears For Fears.

    8)Taylor Dayne was the female artist who produced a few hit singles including “Original Sin” which appeared on the soundtrack The Shadow.

    9) The Music All Stars covered the hit single “Since You’ve Been Gone” which was originally written by the band Rainbow.

    10)Slaughter was a metal band that produced the hits ” Days Gone By, Fly to the Angels, and Up all Night among others.

    • I have to disagree with a couple points. First of all, W.A.S.P. did not stand for that. That was an urban myth propagated by the PMRC. If anything, W.A.S.P. had something to do with “Winged Assassins” — as this can be found hidden on the first LP.

      Also, Tesla — that album was not nearly as big a hit as Five Man Acoustical Jam, which had their biggest hit “Signs” (a cover from Five Man Electical Band!). Psychotic Supper came out in ’91 when Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains had started to take over the charts.

      Other than that, I fully agree! Good quiz!

    You have a great site and althought we cheer for different nfl teams, I think our music is intertwined.

    My only suggestion would be to break up the long paragraphs. It is hard to read in the current form. Making a paragraph after finishing the thought or breaking the thoughts into several paragraphs helps the reader’s eyes.

    How about Holy Wars? Is that your Megadeth fav song? That is mine. Love that one.

    Put me down for New England 41-10
    Denver 17-3
    GB 31-21
    Atlanta 37-17
