Trivia contest update!
We’ve had 3 posted questions since the last update, and they are:
Question #3: U2 had its first US top 40 hit with a powerful tribute to the late Martin Luther King. What was the name of the song, and what was the name and year of the first U2 album on which it appeared?
Answer: Pride (In the Name of Love), from the album Unforgettable Fire in 1984.
Question #4: The members of Blink 182 went on “indefinite hiatus” in 2005, but thrilled fans by announcing a new album and tour in 2009. Now for the multi-part question: What was the February 2009 event where that return was announced, and who was the Angels & Airwaves member who accidentally leaked early news of the new album days before that event?
Answer: The event was the 51st Grammy Awards, and the Angels & Airwaves member who leaked it was David Kennedy. In an online chat a few days before the Grammy Awards, he was answering questions about a new Angels & Airwaves recording session, and let it slip that Blink 182 would be recording a new album as well, which sent the fansites into a tizzy until the official announcement was made a few days later on the award program.
Question #5: Where was Bono when he came up with these lyrics from U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name”? ‘I want to run, I want to hide, I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside.’
