    I reckon the necklace in the box is either Goldie Looking Chain or Jewel. As for the girl with the bubblegum all I can think of is Blondie. The Manic Street Preachers might actually be the Cult.

Can you use the cars which are chevelles(late 60s american muscle car) as the band Chevelle instead of the Cars? Are the blow up dolls a real band? What about the pineapples? And the three girls running, i think depeche mode is really good thought but much to difficult. What are the acrobats, first thought twisted sister but they both dont look like girls even with repeated glances looking for some kind of female characteristics.

    saw the star's 70 solutions as well. they left out Blur...as in the blurred dude on the right. Though they have the plant beside the cart as Bush...i wouldnt call it a bush Whoever said Presidents of USA is actually Dead Kennedys...mixed it up myself! They have the skipping girls as Trio..?? Acrobats - Twisted Sister ye,Blondie for the blondie blowing gum Killers for the 'blues brothers'..they do have blood on their whites! Crowded House, surely could be Bloc Party too though? Yeap, cranberries and jewel by the fruit stall M & Ms on the ground New York Dolls in shop window i think pretty much everything has been mentioned here.

    Don't think so, don't block parties tend to be held outdoors on the street?

    I know i'm like a month too late, but i'm from norway and i've just seen the picture. been looking all over the internet for the actual 70 bands, but can't find it. It's possible i've been looking too much at the picture, but i'm pretty sure i can see three men in each vase where guns'n roses are...is it just me? and i can also see a face in the black flag... i'm loosing my mind here!!
