BLASTERMIND RockNRoll Quiz* NOW WITH ANSWERS

* Well, mostly rock and roll. Your challenge this week is to identify 14 sci-fi bands and singers

Below are 14 images of fictional bands or band members from sci-fi and fantasy films and TV shows. What we want to know is, what movies or TV series are they from and what are the names or the fictional combos or (when there’s only one of ’em) performers?

Because of the genre we’re in, there’s at least one case where that isn’t quite such a clear cut question, so we’ll accept the easier answer as well as the trickier one.

And in another case, we’re doing a Moffat – we’re fibbing! Yep, in one of the images the band or performer is not fictional or performing under a fictional name. But we still need a name – and a bonus points if you correctly identify the case in point.

Usual request: Please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
