[GAME] The Six Degrees of Skrillex

[ Edited ]

Hey all!

 

We were thinking that this board could do with some good clean fun. So to get things kicking off, here's a game we've been playing in the office lately.

 

The aim is to get from any artist in Spotify to Skrillex using only the Related Artists in the fewest number of steps.

For instance, here's Coldplay (just right-click and select 'copy HTTP link' to get the link):

 

1. Coldplay > The Killers

2. The Killers > MGMT

3. MGMT > La Roux

4. La Roux > Calvin Harris

5. Calvin Harris > Deadmau5

6. Deadmau5 > Skrillex

 

Credit to Sam for figuring that one out.

 

Think you've got a quicker route? Give it a go.

 

Get it in 6 or less and feel free to suggest a new starting band.

 

Good luck..

Simple.  

 

1. Madness > Blur

2. Blur > Gorillaz

3. Gorillaz > Daft Punk

4. Daft punk > Deadmau5

5. Deadmau5 > Skrillex

 

The tip seems to be get to a dance-act ASAP.  How quickly can someone get from Dio to Skrilex?

 

(and it can be done...)
