Had no ideas for this, double checked a fav song I listened to earlier today, oh 5 members on that track? Sorted

Feel it legit could be a top 3 pick

Bonus points for tracks where they announce the band members names and what instruments they’re playing

Disappointed to discover that despite the name, and the lyric “Jurassic, five MC’s, and we got the cure for this rap disease”…that they’re actually a six piece.

Back to the drawing board then.

Finding I’m having to do a lot of cross referencing of wikipedia for this one… not having much luck so far

Acceptable?
  • A group of less than 5 with guests that brings the total musicians to 5
  • A 5-piece with guests that puts them over 5 musicians on the track
  • A track attributed to a single person but has 5 musicians on it
  • None of these

The level of pedantry for this round will be

Yeah, I’m finding it particularly tricky when it comes to older groups with a lot of line up changes. It’s tough to know how many were in them at a given point.

Found a song I wanted to play by a band known as a five piece, but looks like they only expanded to five later. The search continues…

A track featuring an unspecified number of members of 5ive

Hey, this was one of my rounds. I was thinking of the band being a core of 5 people at the time the chosen track was released. Hope that makes sense, so if Husker Du did a track with 2 guests (let’s say a harp person and a banjo-ist) that wouldn’t count. But I guess Super Furry Animals might be OK… Radiohead would be OK, but I wouldn’t vote for them. Pigsx7 would be OK, but a single pig doing a track of snorting/snuffling would not. (obviously in reality do whatever ya want, the voters will decide what’s acceptable!)

I agree, but for me the Husker Du situation you described would be fine.

Mate the level of pedantry and sheer outrage in the mosh thread in a round that is TOTALLY subjective is off the chains. But then again we aren’t at the mercy of hardcore fans so maybe it’ll be less

They were/are 5 aren’t they? I think the crowd would allow them, but they’ve appeared quite a lot. So I fear for that choice. Rain or Shine by Five Star would 100% be allowed.

For season 5 I’d love @Brainfreeze to introduce a rule that states an artist/band can only be played once per season to try and freshen things up and stop the same artists/acts appearing over & over.

I appreciate I may be in the minority with this viewpoint.

Oh yeah i could totally submit modest mouse from one of their eras

Really struggling to find anything for this, something I’ve found through music league is that most of the music I like is made by solo artists (this round will be the first time I’ve submitted a band in this league). Keep finding songs I like but can’t really figure out how many people were in the band when it was recorded.
