Questions:

Mojo first gained musical fame partnered with what multi-instrumentalist master of the washboard and mandolin? They parted amicably after a show in Yellowknife, Canada.

Click to Reveal Answer
Skid Roper

Mojo's (and the answer to question 1's) big national exposure followed MTV putting the video for "Elvis is Everywhere" into heavy rotation. In that song, Mojo tells us almost every person has a little Elvis in him - everyone except for one person, the evil opposite of Elvis, the AntiElvis. According to the song, what actor "has no Elvis in him." NOTE: First name, middle initial, and last name REQUIRED; in order to distinguish him from a similarly named actor who had a recurring role as a coroner on the show named for the answer to Question 5 - SAG rules, you know.

Michael J. Fox

During that brief early period when MTV showed music videos, there was a briefer period when Mojo was a spokesman for the network. It was never mentioned on air that Mojo had earlier expressed in song a desire for sex with one of their employees. According to the title and lyrics of that song, Mojo wanted to be "stuffin'" what original MTV VJ's "muffin"? NOTE: First name REQUIRED, last name optional.

Click to Reveal Answer
Martha Quinn/"Stuffin' Martha's Muffin"

Mojo broke with MTV after the network refused to show a video whose title claimed that what then-popular singer was pregnant with his two-headed love child? In the lyrics, the singer ends up jello-wrestling her arch-rival Tiffany until they are both "stark raving naked in the forn-i-cation nation" - a far, far, better end then the ones the same singer and Tiffany suffered in the SyFy Channel movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.

Debbie Gibson

In a song off the album Otis, Mojo claims that he is what attorney "of love"? Della and Paul might agree, but Hamilton would likely object (and probably be overruled - ironically in the context of this question, as in real life the actor who played Hamilton was suspended from the show after being busted for smoking pot at an orgy).

Click to Reveal Answer
Perry Mason

When Joe Jack Talcum sang "If you don't know Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin'" in the immortal ballad "Punk Rock Girl," Mojo responded by inviting what Philly band to be one of many cameos in his video for "615-239-KING"? Mojo and this band then toured together (including a show at the 9:30 Club that the smith dearly wishes he remembered).

Click to Reveal Answer
The Dead Milkmen

According to the introduction to a song on the album Frenzy, a friend of his wrote "Mojo says hi" on, PRECISELY, what device? "Precisely" in this instance means that while the smith can think of several two-word responses that would be equivalently acceptable, no *unhyphenated* one-word responses precise enough to be correct occur to him.

Click to Reveal Answer
Nuclear Bomb/"Gonna Put My Face on a Nuclear Bomb"

"Are You Drinkin' With Me Jesus" and "Will the Fetus Be Aborted" are cuts off the album Prairie Home Invasion, a collaboration with WHAT FORMER LEAD SINGER of a band that urged us to "Kill the Poor" and take a "Holiday in Cambodia"?

Click to Reveal Answer
Jello Biafra

In one cut on the album Root Hog or Die, Mojo reveals that he can no longer have intimate relations with his wife. "She don't want me in it" he sings, because she has apparently become at least semi-habituated to a buzzworthy audio cue: "she says I don't make the right noise." The singer also reveals "She's got VD!" What TWO WORDS, according to the song, does "VD" stand for? Hint: the answer is NOT "venereal disease," though the "D" does stand for a medical and psychological term.

Vibrator Dependency/"She's Vibrator Dependent"

In what may be an answer song to Elton John's remake of "Candle in the Wind," the album The Real Sock Ray Blue, by Mojo Nixon and the Toadliquors, contains a tender tune subtitled "(The Ballad of Diana Spencer)." What is the three word title of the song? The first word refers to intoxication, the second word to her marital state at the time of her death, and the third word is defined by Google as "a girl or a woman who has a reputation for promiscuity."

Click to Reveal Answer
"Drunk Divorced Floozy"
