X is an album by the American comedian Y.
The phrase X , as used by Y, refers to a catastrophe of Epic proportions.
The once-upon-a-time logo of a well-known prog-rock band Z is shown in the image. [ it has been cropped a bit for obvious reasons ]
The members of Z used to be good friends with Y. The title song from one of their best-selling albums, features the same theme X.
The artwork for the album also showed the after-effects of the catastrophe.
X, Y , Z ?
Cracked by all and sundry, some even messing up the variable names in excitement.
@Hasan – thanks.
Identify this comedy-folk band. [ and the members as well ]
Also id the instrument, that the mousey looking female is holding.
1. Better clue
2. Hopeless clue. The title of the post.
Anirudh and Hasan cracked the instrument. 🙂
Goutham and Aditya got the band right.
Note: I’ll not be moderating questions for a few days. A few questions have been automatically scheduled. Have a crack at them. Accolades will be doled out in generous proportions, when I’m back.
Id the gentleman, and spin a general philosophy connect.

Kartik id’d the artist.
Two famous experiments. Two super-famous scientists.
A did the experiment similar to shown in image A.
B described the experiment shown in image B.
Give me A,B, and the names of the respective experiments.
[ If you also give me the colloquial, raunchy name for experiment B, I’ll give you bonus imaginary points ]
Cracked in bits and pieces by Anirudh Patil, and Vivek Nigam.
Consolation points to Avishek Dey for getting 1/4th of the answer right.
Most likely an Old chestnut.
If you’ve posted this question before on your blog, assume I’ve flicked it from you. thanks.
Collaboration by whom, and on which work, is being depicted in this image?
Authors, and the book – please.

Sitter Sunday. Two questions.
These books are marketed under a common brandname. What it is?
On a similar note :), What is this method ( a means of productivity ) called?
1. Cracked by panda, Kitta, and Hasan.
2. Cracked by Kitta, although Hasan got the general funda right 🙂
Shown is the bust of an extremely popular whiz of the 19th century who became a semi-crackpot in later years.
One of his contributions to philosophy ( to the origin of species to be precise), was a statistical concept, fondly called X.
X , was the subject of this dilbert piece.
Cracked by Hasan, and Chandrakant.
The rest were misled by the beard.

This creepy looking musician, formed a core band, which led to about a dozen variants with almost similar names.
One of these sub-bands, released this album in 2006.
The title is a tribute to albums by two bands, one is shown here.
And the album cover is a tribute to , well, that should be obvious.
Id the musician, album, and the band shown.
Cracked by Debasish completely.
Gudur and Gautam got the album right.
@gudur, @all – We’ll try to keep the questions workoutable, and make feeble attempts to beat tineye.
So, figure out the basics, and google for the details ( if necessary).

@srikanth – Cool,quizzer’s serendipity.
And the final question from the theme week. A sitter, I think. [ late night question, excuse the grammar]
Composer A made a very popular tune B to remember the fact that his nation’s troops defended against the warring forces.

Band, C , released a monstrous song D, which is a tribute of sorts to B, because of its name, and a section of the guitaring being similar to B.
Oh, I’ve started, so I’ll finish.
There is the audio as well. Help yourselves. [reduce the volume a few notches]

And, the 4th question in the Paschimi Shastreeya Sangeet theme week
A, is the first opera by B.
A is loosely based on the various facets of life of an über-famous 19th-20th century icon – X.
a popular ‘cola-wars’ ad, shows X in a dilemma over which beverage is to be chosen, as one of the tracks from A is playing in the background.
B is a very prominent 20th century composer, still very much alive, known for a style of composing, which involves repeating a small amount of music over and over and over and, well you get the point.
Give me B, and A.

The 3rd question in the Weshtran Claashical Muzik and Operaa Theme week
A is/was a famous classical music composer at some really famous Philharmonics.
[ photo credits: Jack. If you see this, Thanks for an awesome pic and Sorry for lifting it off your site]
B is a much older creature. The maker of many a musical dramas, he’s particularly known for a certain ring, and a particularly ominous/climactic ride.
C is a famous jewish character from one of B’s librettos ( The title of the play features a town, rather infamous in the Natzi scheme of affairs ).
The ideal personification of a pedantic critic, is C.
So, if you mix A and C in equal proportions, you’d end up with the fictional character D, who apparently didn’t die of an current shock once, because he was such a poor conductor 🙂
If you give me A, B, C and D , I’ll assume that you know the libretto’s name.
Fair deal, eh?
Cracked by panda, and Chandrakant. Nice work fellas…
Shown is an album released sometime in the last century.
The band is said to have influenced many from the Thrash Metal, and black metal genres.
So, why in the name of Satan, is this posing as a western classical music question?
In short, name the album.
