Just to clarify, for #1, is a band with "The" followed by three words an acceptable response, or would a leading "The" completely disqualify the band from consideration?

Basically, if it existed, would "The Sheeps and Drops" be correct?

Had I known that, I could have doubled the list of bands I could have used I left in the comments.

It didn’t occur to me when I wrote the question that some people would read “excluding the as the first word” in this way. So I would have to accept The Blank Blank Blank, especially since the penalty for a wrong answer is elimination! Sloppy writing on my part

Since there’s no entrant list, I can’t verify ... did I ever enter this one?

I see that was a no :-(

Oh well, I thought I clicked submit right after I asked the clarification question, but apparently I hadn't. And now the form is closed. Whoops.

Not that it mattered, but I crossed hairs going for the country of Peru as opposed to the capital city of Peru on Q2. Womp womp.

Why does "*" say "3 responses" but has only two names under it?

Turns out, my random number generator (i.e. the first number I thought of) wasn't very good for this one.

Fwiw, for the IPA question, I said November, which is a correct answer, and it looks like you scored it that way. You posted "December," which would've been a miss. :)
