Punk rock has been an incredibly popular genre and movement that was incredibly popular from the 1980s and quickly died out. It was such a popular movement amongst the youth of those days and was one of the best ways for them to voice their opinions loudly. It conveyed how they rebelled against options that were ‘forced’ onto them and punk rock music was a way of telling the ‘man’ to screw themselves. This incredible, grunge-y playlist features music by bands like The Stooges, Dead Boys while also featuring incredibly famous and genre defining songs like ‘Anarchy in the UK,’ Rebel Girl, Los Angeles and more. So get your grunge ready as this is punk rock music bingo!
Let’s work our way up top. First, we need the usual thing required for any party - decorations. Punk rock is so diverse yet they all follow a very similar theme that would be easy to master and makes perfect sense as well. For starters, you can line the walls with posters of punk idols like Blondie, The Ramones and many other punk rock bands and musicians. It also helps if you follow a very dark-ish color theme as well. You can throw up incredible decorations from the 90s as that’s when it peaked. Think of gold and black sequins, gold utensils as well as it does help with the overall vibe of the party. You can complete the decorations by throwing in smaller things like a metal chain or spikes, though make sure the spikes aren’t far too pointy that it might hurt others.
Next up is the dress code. Of course, every party does need a dress code, especially if it follows a very particular and specific theme. Of course, punk rock is a very, very diverse theme and each subset of punk follows very different styles of fashion. For example, horror punk and deathrock fashion are incredibly similar to something like goth fashion. Dresses like fishnet stockings, corsets and fairly elaborate make-up for both men and women are common. For pop punk, it features dresses like band hoodies, dress shirts with thin ties or scarves, blazers and more. Obviously, one key aspect of punk rock was crazy and something that was fairly hardcore hairstyle. They often used to dye their hair in different colors like a bright pink or dark green or colors along those lines. Alternatively, people did have incredibly spiky hair as well.
Next up is food. You don’t actually need to go over the top with this one since most common food can be presented nice enough and matches with the theme. For example, you can simply bake small cupcakes and decorate it with frosting that looks very spiky. Or if you want to bake some cookies, you can bake them in a CD like shape and serve it with white frosting and perhaps, if you wanted to, you can pipe the name of the band or artist on it as well, adding somewhat of a personal touch. You can serve sandwiches shaped like a star or instead of sandwiches, you can always serve some meat or some cheese in a star shape or if you’re very experienced, try adding spikes or something similar on it. Another idea is simply serving ice cream in some sugar cones and topping them off with chocolate shavings or sprinkles if you can do that. If you have plans of installing a bar, you can name it the ‘Rebels’ or ‘Misfits’ selection and have drinks that truly embodies the punk spirit!
Finally, let’s gloss over some very simple and trivial things that do play an important role in the party. The music bingo can be played by a band if possible, who dresses up like a punk rock band itself. Alternatively, you can also play the band over the speakers as usual and don’t forget to encourage the guests to sing along if they know the lyrics. One fun bit to add here is a mosh pit, where your guests can dance to the punk rock hits! Let’s also not forget about the invitations. You want your guests to feel like they’re actually in a punk rock concert. There are two ways to go about this - either print out invitations that look like a ticket to a concert or you can give them a CD that has the names of some of the bands or artists of the song on the playlist.
These are some ideas that your guests would certainly enjoy for the Punk Rock Themed Music Bingo and if you have better ideas, feel free to let us know! Again, you can find the playlist to match the game on every major music streaming platform like Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Happy music bingo!

It's time to have so much fun with this playlist that provides so much entertainment and confusion!

Beware of what you see, because not everything is what they appear to be. Or in this case, sound! This is a very different and a fun take on different songs over so many eras. It’s the April Fool’s Theme Pack and this time, it features songs that sound so similar to each other but at the same time, it also may or may not sound the same. Songs like Got To Give It Up By Marvin Gaye and Blurred lines by Robin Thicke may sound extremely similar to each other but at the same time, songs like I'm Coming Out by Diana Ross and Mo Money, Mo Problems by Notorious B.I.G may have some samples that sound very close but aren’t the same song at all. It’s a very fun edition and one can learn about new songs and it could be their new groove. So buckle up! Looks (or in this case, the sounds!) may seem incredibly deceiving so don’t let yourself be tricked or fooled now!
As with every party, first you need to decorate the room. There aren’t a lot of themed decorations for this one. However, like we mentioned earlier, looks may be deceiving. You can choose to use a balloon arch if you want and maybe put up some frames of clowns and jokers around. One funny thing could be that you could probably add in a clown behind a fake frame, if that’s possible. You can also do simple things like add in a whoopee cushion or a fake pinata, something that drops random objects when broken or almost never breaks despite so many futile attempts. You can greet your guests with a fake hand if that makes things a lot more interesting. Other decorations also include a pinata in the shape of the number one and again, fill it with the most random things you could find.
Next up is dressing sense. This might be fairly easy. Ask your guests to dress up in some of the goofiest dresses they could or they could pretend to be someone else or maybe even have a couple of tricks up their sleeves. They can even dress up like a clown if they wanted to. There are so many ways you can go with this. Some ideas are the classic long handkerchief gimmick or they could have a flower on their coat (if they are wearing one) that squirts water. Simple but fun additions to their regular dresses can also be encouraged! After all, it’s all about having fun!
Let’s take a look at food. There’s so much potential here! Especially since there exist so many recipes that look different but tastes completely opposite! For example, you can make a meatloaf cupcake with mashed potato frosting. It’s easy for almost anyone to be fooled by that, especially since it closely resembles a good old chocolate cupcake! Or you also have the option of preparing regular dishes like cream puffs but there’s a catch - one of the pastries might have something else other than a sweet filling! It’s a fun prank to play and basically, a Russian roulette version using cream puffs. You can also make jello in a glass with a straw, tricking your guests into thinking that it’s an actual drink but once they drink using the straw, they’ll be surprised!
Now for the showcase event, the bingo itself! You can ask someone talented to sing it with the karaoke in the background or if it makes things easier, you can always play it using our amazing playlist that’s available on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. While the songs are being played, you can always ask the guests to join in if they know the lyrics to the song or if you have a large enough space to host it, you can also ask them to dance to the song. Making a party lively is what makes it a party. And since it is April Fool’s themed, you can play some random tracks and ask them to identify it but there’s a catch - it isn’t part of the playlist! It just adds to the fun!
Finally, you need to leave your guests with a memorable gift. One interesting gift you can give them is a simple t-shirt that says ‘You can’t trick me’ if they have managed to bypass all the tricks laid out there. Or for the winner of the game, you can give them a bunch of Post-Its that already have ‘Kick Me’ written on it. Alternatively, you can give them a whoopee cushion if you can!
These are some ideas that your guests would certainly enjoy for the April Fool’s Themed Music Bingo and if you have better ideas, feel free to let us know! Again, you can find the playlist on every major music streaming platform like Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Happy music bingo!
All eras of music in one place. This is a must-have for your DJ company, Trivia, or Music Bingo events.
Despite the fact that we all were born in different eras, one thing we can all agree is that there are some songs from every era starting from the 60s all the way to the early 2000s that stay in our head for so long and just makes us want to play it all on repeat. We have so many incredible and talented music artists from those decades, featuring Maroon 5 from the early 2000s, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin from the 60s, Black Sabbath and Dolly Parton from the 70s, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen from the 80s, and bands like Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers from the 90s! So many amazing songs and artists! This game pack is definitely well worth the value, especially since you save up to 24% instead of buying these games separately.
Still thinking about the potential ideas with this mega game pack? Here are some amazing ideas for every era in this game pack!
The important thing to remember about these game packs is the fact that this is fun in a party or if you’re running a bar, you can certainly have so many music bingo nights with this. Now, if you’re going to be running any one of the eras in this pack, you’ll need matching decorations to go with each to set the mood and vibe in the room. Let’s start from the bottom up.
The 60s had a very diverse and bright set of decor to begin with. You can put up a ton of lava lamps across the room, tie-dyes and photos of posters of Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and other popular music bands and artists. Popular color schemes during the 60s were colors like coral, mustard, turquoise among many. Obviously, being able to add a peace sign or a massive light up peace sign. Alternatively, using neon signs would also be a good decorative piece. would be great!
Next, the 70s. You could reuse some decorative pieces from the 60s here and that’d definitely help with cost if you plan hosting another party after the 60s. You can have a massive disco ball hanging from the ceiling with strobe lights and smoke machines to complement it. Instead of hanging frames of music artists and bands, you can instead use disco vinyl records and some incredibly (but not obnoxiously) bright colored table cloths as well.
The 80s is a fairly easy era to work with in terms of decorations. During the 80s, neon colors were incredibly popular and using those colors would definitely go a long way in making an 80s based theme more authentic. Every invite, every club back in the day was filled with neon color decor. You certainly will be hitting the brief of an 80s themed party. Consider using black as well for contrast. Another cool thing that can be used as decor is essentially an arcade game or even a photo booth. That’ll be nailing the brief!
As for the 90s, well that again could be done easily! You can throw some confetti squares and triangles around. You can also hang some old 90s technology like floppy disks or CDs or maybe even VHS tapes! Even small things like Magic 8 Balls can be used as centerpieces on the table. If possible, you can rent a classic arcade game like Pac Man or Street Fighter and that provides both functionality and aesthetics to the party.
You can apply the same 90s decor for a 2000s themed party as well, though less confetti would be a nice touch. The early 2000s were a much simpler time than the one we live in right now. The internet was still growing and new consoles were out in the market. Instead of using arcades, you can pick up a PlayStation 1 or the original Xbox since that was around the time these new generations of consoles came out. You can also use some old CDs again or you can play the songs on a DVD player, if that’s possible!
Now that we are sorted on the decor part of the party, let’s move on to the dress code for each era.
For the 60s, loose and comfortable was something that was popular back then. Women can wear long skirts in earthy colors like brown or with patterns. Men can wear clothes like a vest, jeans in brown or darker tones. Obviously, both men and women can wear bell bottom jeans and if you want to, you can wear a poncho, especially if you will be having the party outside.
Next up, the 70s. The main emphasis here was bell-bottom pants, floral shirts and psychedelic and geometric prints. It isn’t massively different compared to the 60s so you could reuse some things. Some clothes like an army jacket, gaucho pants, tight corduroy are some ideas that you can look for. Afro and mullets were famous back then, if you want to change your hairstyle.
As for the 80s, you can ask your guests to wear leg warmers, animal prints clothes and a lot of neon colored clothes. You can also ask them to come as their favorite 80s musicians as well, making things interesting. Some ideas are lace blouses, ripped jeans and clothes along those lines.
The 90s is an interesting time. Mom jeans, cargo pants and bike shorts were incredibly famous back then. Crop tops and pleated skirts (similar to the one in the movie, Clueless?) were famous as well. Your guests can draw inspiration from the popular TV show, Friends as well.
The 2000s was where denim started to trend. You can expect your guests to wear bright colored and shiny outfits. They can also wear cardigans, a denim jacket along with a pair of denim jeans and also velour track sets. One thing for sure is that your guests can wear a lot of denim based products!
Those are some basic ideas you can use for your amazing themed music bingo party! Additionally, to make things more interesting, you can award your guests in some manner, either if they win or being the best dressed or simple things like that. For every era, you can give them small things like a disco ball keychain, an old console like the PS1, scrunchies, just small things that are actually reminiscent of the particular era.
These are some ideas that your guests would certainly enjoy for the Guitar Gods and if you have better ideas, feel free to let us know! You can find the playlist on every major music streaming platform like Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Happy music bingo!
It's that time of the year and thanks to the holiday period, you can save yourself a lot of money by downloading out awesome and fun party games!
Written by:- Farhan Subi
It’s Christmas time and I am sure you must’ve invited friends and family over to your place for some really good, soulful food and just spend some time with them. But what if there was a way to elevate that experience by a whole lot? Well, then you’ve come to the right place looking for that.
There are tons of holiday themed party ideas out there but sometimes, it might be very expensive or just not something that you might be looking for. It could vary in a plethora of price ranges and it might not be feasible for everyone to be able to afford it. That’s where downloading and hosting your own Christmas holiday party would be a much better idea than actively looking for something that might be super expensive.
For starters, if you’re on a tight budget, you could start off by not adding too much decorations around your home. You might have already decorated your home for the holiday period anyways and it doesn’t make sense to add too much decorations on top of it. Besides, simplicity is key to decorating your home. Add too much and your place could become like a flea market, and no one wants that, for sure.
You could also skimp on invitations though, that is really up to you. It doesn’t necessarily make sense to make invitations but it’s really up to the host. If you do plan on calling a lot of people, you could make an evite since for starters, it is easy on the environment and you don’t need to spend so much money printing it and things like that. Just a simple e-vite would definitely help, if needed.
Next up is food. Obviously, if you’re inviting them during the holiday period, chances are, you most definitely have food prepared though if you don’t, you could order some home-made food from restaurants or you and if your guests love cooking, you could whip out a dish that most people would definitely love and you could cook it with them! If you want to serve alcoholic beverages, limit the choices to wine and beer. This will help reduce your cost. For non-alcohol drinkers and designated drivers, you can always keep it simple and set up dispensers or pitchers filled with iced water with fruit slices and freshly brewed iced tea or serve hot cocoa with all the fixings such as marshmallows, candy canes, whipped cream, etc. And since it is the holiday period, eggnogs are popular as ever and can be used as well!
One interesting game you could pick up is Secret Santa. You and your guests can pick a draw with each other and that’s where the fun begins! You could set a spending limit as low as you like and let people get creative. That way, your guests will only have to buy one gift instead of a gift for each guest. Also, if your budget allows, you could send your guests home with gifts such as ornaments or special sweet treats like fresh baked cookies or homemade candies.
Another interesting party you could have is basically a wholesome Christmas movie! For instance, Home Alone has a reboot now. and it’s everyone’s favorite Christmas movie (well, almost.) There are plenty of movies that a family could watch together and it’s better if you have a subscription service to something like Netflix, Hulu or something along those lines, you’ll most likely have content curated for the holiday theme as well, so that’d be a great idea.
But another great idea is basically just chilling around and playing a ton of games that everyone can enjoy regardless. One of them is basically our own games, here on Fat City Entertainment. We have Trivia which is actually one of the most popular games we have in our store. There are various topics to choose from and the feedback we’ve received has been incredibly great! You can check them out here if you ever are interested in that. We also have a Christmas Special Game Pack, which includes a simple knowledge trivia with 5 Christmas themed categories. Plus, it also includes bonus rounds as well! Another game includes Music Trivia which includes final challenges and bonus rounds as well.
We also have a plethora of music trivia games and music bingo games as well! Music bingo is essentially a different take on bingo where instead of crossing out numbers, you cross out music based on what music the caller/DJ plays.
That’s some of the games and holiday party ideas we have. We’d love to know if you have any more ideas. Feel free to mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
Time to party!
