Ahhhh ok that's right. Thanks

here's a neat analysis if you can get past the fact that the author clearly doesn't have a high opinion of bad: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...career-242777/

Weird because I didn’t know one or two of the cobble questions but I thought that everyone knew the live aid one.

I don't have the exact wordings, I can't remember, so I'm sure you're right about the Pop one. Either way, the answer was lemon. And WOWY was their first release on CD, yes.

Would be interested to know from people here if they a) knew all the answers b) reckon they'd have been able to nail them on a TV quiz show?

4. The song that saved the band, One, begins with what lyric?
5. Apple promoted one of their iPods with what song in 2004?

Questions 1 and 2 appear to be written in Australian English. Can’t tell if #1 is Larry or drums, but I’ll go with the latter. #2 I could have guessed, but would’ve struggled with it if you just asked me what U2’s first release on CD was. #3 I’m saving popmart for when they retire, I don’t know what they got stuck in. Perhaps they got stuck in a moment. #4, does the whole sentence suffice, or is “is” the answer? #5... ok, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

#1 dunno, #2 it wasn’t early morning was it? Maybe in Ireland it was reeeeally early... #3 changing the song title to “My Brain is Hanging Upside Down” because Bono Ramone didn’t want to upset the republicans (hows that for some trivia?!?)

but could you answer them on a TV set with a studio audience and lights on you up against a sharp-witted comedian host and three other contestants who can answer before you?

yep. that's the idea of the show, what makes it so watchable. I applied, was successful, went to rehearsals, was successful.

I’m confused, they found other U2 obsessives to compete against you? Or you each get to pick a topic but can answer other contestant’s questions?

And I know this stuff backwards and forwards so I’d like to think I’d be fine.

Bono jumped into the crowd during Bad at Live Aid, waded away into the masses and has never been seen since. U2 had a good run there from 1980 to 1985, and their fans still discuss them to this day on many message boards.

Also in the Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur. Some controversy there as to whether he grew two, or if one was a fake.

The Prize for winning this week's episode of Hard Quiz is a "43" hat.

Or if the mullet splits time between the two, and has it's own plane seat when it flies from Dubai to Kuala Lumpur
