Published March 8, 2016

Jeopardy has seen itself involve music questions more and more recently. Everything from Fetty Wap to Dr. Dre have been answers to questions on the long-running trivia game show.

On a recent episode, contestants were served what many would believe to be a belt-high, underhand lob pitch question that not one of the three contestants could answer.

“In 1989 a station was fined $2,000 for playing ‘Erotic City’ by this funky musician,” the question read.

Answer? Uh... Who is Prince?... Duh?

A Twitter user posted a screengrab of the answer the contestants were supposed to come up with the question to with the caption, “None of yesterday's Jeopardy contestants knew this answer. OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS FAILING OUR YOUTH!”
