There is only one row that I could get all the way across... the one starting with the A-team. I like the way they depicted the Specials... too cute. :)

Oh yeah... I guess I got that one too... but then other rows, some I have nothing.

Edit: I got as far as 41 and then gave up... I think the fact that it's the UK makes a difference. Things like Adam and the Ants, the Specials, Madness, etc... and then there are the dozens I had no idea what they were.

Apparently, I am very culturally sad. But I must say, this is about the best use for MS Excel that I have ever seen!

Some of the answers you have to spell wrong to get correct. Like the nude Alanis. And don't put Fonzie. In needs to be "Fonz".

That thing is hard. I need to watch more MTV or read Rolling Stone apparently.

I got the first row, then I was lost. I think you can save where you get up to, then send it to others for help. I saw a similar one that worked like that.

I tried Fonzie... Henry Winkler... sheesh "Fonz", indeed.

Anyone else get the little black guy with the orange shirt three boxes below Batman?

46 out of 95 on the first round.
That was a lot harder than it looks. I suppose because it's so Britishcentric (new word!), which makes sense being a bbc website and all.

Did anyone else figure out "morecambe and wise"? I think that one would be really hard for non-british people under the age of say 40 to get... Wonder if the Two Ronnies are in there somewhere too?

So far I'm up to 25, but I really hate that some groups have "the" in them, while others don't (e.g. village people).

Thanks tranplanner now I'm at 27...
A few give aways:
shakira, right next to prince
friends (the show), on first cell on the row of backsreet boys.
jamiroquai, below the spice girls.

:)

Who's the one at the last cell in the first row?
