It was all in good fun kicking around the name Al Capone Banjo for our little Wiki Stump until we actually Googled it, and lo: it turns out Scarface really owned and operated his very own banjo while rotting in Alcatraz, a banjo that haunts Alcatraz to this very day (they don’t tell you this story on the audio tour):
Strangely, although the ghost of Al Capone has never been rumored to haunt, a ghost researcher who was gathering evidence about the haunting of Alcatraz, spoke to a National Park Ranger (the prison is now a National Park site) about something strange that happened in one of the cells. The ranger had no idea who had once been housed there, but he was sure that he had heard spectral banjo music coming from inside of the chamber…..
The cell had once belonged to Al Capone.
So, if you want to know why a plurality of you voted incorrectly for the game’s name, you have only a park ranger gone mad with loneliness to blame. Here are the clues for the last one, as won by “kevin”:
- Beavis and Butt-head
- Bo Diddley
- Colorado Springs, Colorado
- David Fincher
- Disc jockey
- Kurt Cobain
(Kevin, how’d you solve this? “umm i remembered that beavis and butthead with the guys, and with the cello it made me think of the song from armageddon, i thought i had it, so i looked,” he said, in the comments.)
So for round three we present a double-ACB, as part of our relentless struggle to have one of these unsolved long enough to eat a smallish bag of chips. Also, we’re shortening it to 6, to see if that makes it any harder. (Game play explained here in case you still have no idea what the fuck we’re talking about.) To win this round, you have to guess both bands…
- Hip hop culture
- List of percussionists
- Athens, Ohio
- Faith No More
- Erykah Badu
- Hardcore punk
- Alternative rock
- List of Steve Albini’s recording projects
- Mike Patton
- Talk:Experimental music
- Noise rock
Faith No More and Mike Patton are just about the only things these two have to do with each other. Got it? Run a link to the answer through SnipURL and post it in the comments. Eventually we will start giving out prizes (or lolcats) to the winners.
