Hello,

This was a game I invented some years back on CP. It was popular for quite a while. Perhaps it will be here, too?

If I gave you these initials:

NP
GL
AL

and asked you to name the band, well... duh.

So here is a different one, just as easy. Answer it, or post your own. Winner is whoever gets the most correct first answers. Winner shall receive a Grand Prize, to be revealed at a later time.

RS
GH
PM
JL

Missing Persons fits the last two, (Wendy Williams, Terry Bozzio).  Other than that, I'm stumped for now.

It's a game, that's all. You don't have to participate.

Actually it is a rather daunting, challenging test at times - a trivia game where there is no recourse such as Googling the answer. Go ahead and try.
