    There are 75 bands from the Virgin label represented in this picture. Two of my friends and I have only found 45 of them.

    Virgin Bands

    Example: Guns N' Roses on the left bottom represented by the guns and roses bouquets.

    Please name the band and how they are represented.

    One of my other boards is also doing this, and we've hit up to 74, I believe...

    We have most of Richard's same list, with a few differences:

    Instead of Mountain (our first thought), we now think Cypress Hill...

    We were undecided between Dead Kennedys and Presidents of the USA...some of us think the top pic looks more like Ronald Reagan...

    Instead of Twisted Sister, we also thought possibly the Contortionists...

    And, we have a few more that aren't listed here (some guesses, and some we're pretty sure about).

    The Proclaimers
    The Go-Gos
    The Cranberries (possibly...the crate in front of the veggie stand)

    ...and a few others...

    Fun, but a bit ambiguous, given some of the group names that are out there these days...

    A couple more that have been missed or perhaps need alternative explanations:

    Madonna (the picture of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus in the shop window) Alternatively, it might mean the Jesus and Mary Chain (an indie rock group from the 80s)

    Pink (the bubblegum being blown by the woman on the fire escape; and/or the colour of the sky) Or, the pink bubblegum might be referring to an obscure group called Bubblegum.

    Television (basically, the same section of the picture that also gives us Talking Heads)

    Pavement (Britspeak for sidewalk)

    The Go-Gos (the girls running in front of one of the giant boulders are wearing go-go boots)

    Phish might actually be Fish (ex-lead singer with Marillion, enjoyed a modest solo career in Europe if not in the USA)

    Nine Inch Nails may be Styx (they might not be nails but might be sticks such as drum sticks; 'sticks' = 'Styx'; yes, I know, an appalling pun)

    The Dolls/The New York Dolls (doll in shop window - probably not)

    The Vibrators ((he barrels of the sex pistols)

    Men at Work (there are quite a few male workers in the picture)

    Manic Street Preachers (the group in white - or at a pinch, it might be The Average White Band)

    Really off the wall:

    Is the girl next to the cowboy meant to be Sweethart of the Rodeo? Yes, I know it's the name of an album, but wasn't there a group called that as well?

    Is the subway sign meant to indicate Velvet Underground?

    Wasn't there a band called The Streets? In which case that could be another answer found.

    BTW, what's in the holster of the cowboy junkie? It doesn't look like a gun, but the resolution on my monitor isn't good enough to work it out.

    Also, don't all 75 acts have to be on the Virgin lable? In which case, a lot of the list is wrong, I'm afraid (including most of my suggestions [​IMG]).
