Name says it all. You give a snippet of a rock song and people try and guess the song its from and the band/individual who sings it. If no one gets it in the first 2 posts you post a hint. If no one for 5 after that you give it up.
If you get it right you post the next song.

I'll go first-
"I Know it's most unusual to come before you so. I found an ancient miracle I thought that you should know"

Not that hard, right?

Can we say that the person who answers correctly also posts the next snippet, thus giving the game some momentum?

seeded... seedy... point of view really... it fits so well with the rest of the verses that its hard to tell the difference... you obviously know the song though KarlEd, I think we have similar tastes in music.

Right band. Wrong song. The song is Undone (The Sweater Song).

"Wild Night," first by Van Morrison and remade by John Mellencamp & Michelle N'dageocello (sp?!?!)

Mine:

"I went to see the doctor of philosophy
with a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
he never did marry or see a B-grade movie
he graded my performance, he said he could see through me
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
got my paper and I was free"

It's "Running Blind" by Godsmack.

Can you guess who and what this is?

"Mayday every day, in my heart.
Could've had a heart attack, in my heart.
We don't know anything, in my heart.
We all want something fair, in my heart."

By the way, I believe the actual lyric is "you can test it but it will not foam". 'taste it but it will not form' makes no sense.

Yeah, I'll give it to you SteveRogers, the song is actually called The Lightning Strike, but it's a 3-part song and those lines are from the third part, called Daybreak.
