I never would have gotten the two I missed, but I spent at least 40 seconds just trying to spell Sinead O’Connor.

I can’t blame Ali for this. Only my years of exposure to classic rock and metal.

I found my spelling of Sinead O'Connor very easy but how the fuck is a Limey supposed to know who Live are?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Not sure how you pronounce Live's name, is it "Live" or "Live?"

:lol:

They were the band that literally every girl I hooked up with between 1994-1996 loved. 90s girls in America loved themselves some Live, which is pronounced like “Live At Leeds.”

They are, in a word, terrible.

30/30. I still use a handful of those so regularly I don’t think of them as slang.
