This Frank Ocean 'Jeopardy!' Question Stumped Every Contestant

Frank Ocean has been a Jeopardy! clue at least twice before, and his name came up on the show again Monday night.

This time, the prompt required a depth of knowledge about Ocean’s catalog that’s probably beyond that of a casual music fan: “On this song from Channel Orange, Frank Ocean sings to a cab driver of his unrequited love for a man.” The song is critically acclaimed and socially important, but it’s not exactly a hit. So it’s not that surprising that none of the contestants were able to correctly respond, “What is ‘Bad Religion’?” Still a little disappointing, though.
