72 Hidden Bands

Image where 72 bands are hidden
This seem to be all over the place now, but as far as I can see, the image linked to is very often the wallpaper at Virgin Digital – and this lacks some vital hints at the left, where the image is cut off. So, I cloned it back in.

Have a look at the high resloution picture, and see if you can find all 72 bands. (Hey, maybe it’s possible to find some that the artist(s) didn’t think of, too? ;))

  11. although it is not noted on the answer sheet at http://www.tigercrossing.com/virgin-74a.jpg noted above I would say “Mountain” it there ( even though it is shown as Cypress hill ) as well as the “White Witch ” reflected in the Guns and Roses vase. Also, they are noted as “Cars” al la Rik Ocasek, but do I not see a Javelin ( ” Javelyn”) and a Chevelle .
    We also have white roses behind the red ones aka: The “White Rose Movement” And is the cowboy’s gun not a “Revolver”this could represent “Revolver” out of Canada or possibly Slash’s “Velvet Revolver”

    Of course I would be inclined to believe that the intent would be to feature names that had at least at some point in time had recorded with Virgin Records……

    anyway……just a few thoughts

  12. the artist probably intended the 74 bands that are pointed out, but evidently ppl found much more, that occured accidentally. They also probably weren’t virgin records bands…but they made their way in there anway. hehe
    Cool stuff…
