This Is Indie Rock Jeopardy!


Our friends at The L Magazine were watching the college tournament on Jeopardy! last week, and were shocked when indie rock appeared as a category in the Double Jeopardy round. How would you have fared?

$400: Ben Gibbard is the lead singer of this band that sounds like a ride a hottie should turn down. $800: Kingsizemaybe’s song “Dallas” recalls the day of this man’s assassination. $1200: L.A.’s Silversun Pickups got their name from a store at the corner of Silver Lake Boulevard and this one with a famous “strip.” $1600: As a child, Jenny Lewis appeared on “Baywatch”; now she fronts this “Portions for Foxes” band. $2000: Think twice before kissing these “hot” Oklahoma indie stars who sang “Do You Realize?”

If you’re debating whether questions two and three really count, in this same round a question about Harry Potter surfaced in Comparative Lit category. Click over to the L’s site to find out if you did better than the college kids.
