Music Favorites: Track 3

Thursday, December 12, 2013

It's the grand finale of Ask Me Another's favorite musical games. Fugazi's Ian MacKaye teams up with NPR's Stephen Thompson to identify acoustic renditions of punk songs performed in decidedly un-punk style by house musician Jonathan Coulton ("Un-Punk'd"). And puzzle guru Art Chung leads a gripping final round on phrases and proper nouns that contain the name of a musical instrument ("Our Magnum Opus").
