There's twelve pieces of smashed pumpkins lying on the road - a dirty dozen if you wish.
The latter is commonly initialised as D12 - which is I understand a rap band.

D12 was Eminem's group, so makes sense that the smashed pumpkins are next to the spilled pack of M&Ms

Looks more like the front of Canard jet fighter than a shark but OK I give in

It is odd though that some of you see that, although seeing that kind of stuff is similar to Pareidolia, which is a phenomena whereby you see faces in everything, clouds in the sky, carpets curtains wallpaper etc, oddly enough and totally in context here, there is a group called Pareidolia, they have a youtube channel as well

There's a few different answer sets out there and none of them totally agree with each other. Can't believe Manic Street Preachers wasn't correct :p

I had a search and found this set of answers. There're a few which we considered and then discarded as not being correct. The Monkeys (sic), I'm looking at you!

I wasn't aware pixies could fly. The mythological creatures above the pet shop are fairies, and pink enough to earn their rightful name The Pink Fairies :p

I've yet to see my answers for 311 and D12 given on any forum with the quiz that I have found on searching. Usually it's "where are they?"

I reckon my The Roots is just as good, if not better, than The Vines.

And I still swear that's a poster of a Seal and not a Rooster!

Just before we leave this one, at least I agreed with them about it being a shark, the band being Great White!

Give me a few minutes to post up something.

There are some dodgy answers on that annotated pic. The yellow man / mannequin by the shop cant be Yelloman as well as Goldie, and similarly the iron statue cant be Queens Of The Stone Age & Iron Maiden as well. :D

I agree - and that's why I posted it. I think someone else had collected together a bunch of guesses and included possible second answers.
