    Buddy Holly formed in the 50's while the other 3 formed in the 60's. Even BOC, albiet Soft White Underbelly.

    Or, Deep Purple's first letter isn't B.

    The three bands listed all have colors in their names while Buddy Holly obviously does not, or three are bands and one is an individual.

    no and no.
    I probably made this a little too tough but I'll listen to a few more before telling you guys the answer.

    Blue Öyster Cult is the only one with 3 words in its name?

    The answer is:

    With the exception of Black Sabbath, all of these are the names of songs performed by bands and artists who don’t share the same name as the song.

    Buddy Holly – Weezer
    Blue Oyster Cult – Shonen Knife
    Deep Purple - Peter DeRose

    So... who goes next?
  • sonicnerd23sonicnerd23 Road Warrior

    I guess I will.

    AC/DC
    ZZ Top
    Huey Lewis and the News
    Sammy Hagar

    ZZ Top is the only band listed who has retained its original members since the band formed.

    Probably a stretch, since Sammy Hagar isn't a band, but has played in a bunch of them.

    Nope. Not those.

    Sammy Hagar is the only one with less than three capital letters in their name?
    just throwing that out there

    Nope. I'll give you a hint. It has something to do with movie soundtracks.

    Sammy was the only musician to appear on the Heavy Metal soundtrack. What a deliciously kitschy movie...

    I remember that movie! I saw it a few months ago on VH1 Classic. They parodied it in South Park as well. (the latest episode)

    Nope. Think sci-fi movies.

    Black Sabbath, the song, was covered. I think you need to say it's the only song whose original artist did not have the same name as the song.

    Really? VH1 Classic does show some pretty interesting films - "Woodstock", "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", "Gimme Shelter", etc. - but I didn't think VH1 was that cool. They must've had to censor a bit of Heavy Metal, though. ;) I liked that South Park episode, as well.

    Huey Lewis & The News did the soundtrack to Back to the Future!

    Warmer. Oh, so warmer. But still not it.

    You got that switched around. It's "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", haha. That was a great documentary, though. My brother has a copy of it that I watched one time.

    Hrm. Well, AC/DC's "Who Made Who" was the soundtrack to Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive (I guess it could be considered a sci-fi film?), Sammy did Heavy Metal, and Huey did Back to the Future, so that would leave ZZ Top as the odd group out?

    D'oh! I actually had a feeling I mixed it up. Probably should of checked Wikipedia first. Any way, for someone who is usually not into metal, I found the movie was pretty darn interesting. They interviewed a lot of great musicians.

    Yeah, I saw it when I was first getting into metal. Gave me a greater appreciation for the genre as well as a lot of knowledge about it.

    New Hint: It has something to do with Runesmith's previous guess.

    ZZ Top and Huey Lewis were both featured in Back to the Future movies

    Van Halen was played, which would feature Hagar

    leaves AC/DC out

    except without nudity which pretty much ruined the whole movie for me

    You're slightly right, so I'll give it to you.

    Huey Lewis - Back to the Future (Power of Love, Back In Time)
    Sammy Hagar - Back to the Future 2 (I Can't Drive 55)
    ZZ Top - Back to the Future 3 (Doubleback)

    And AC/DC did squat.

    Try this one, having to do with Rush album covers:

    A Farewell to Kings
    Permanent Waves
    Moving Pictures
    Power Windows
  • HungryfreakHungryfreak Headliner
    edited May 2008
    Power Windows was the only drawn cover?
  • MuffsterMuffster Opening Act
    edited May 2008
    True of these particular album covers, but not the answer.

    Hint: The factoid regarding the odd album cover out here is actually unique for all studio Rush album covers.

    A Farewell to Kings because it's the only one with the album title next to the band name, rather than below it?
