• A: 2 Live Crew
• B: Public Enemy
• C: Run D.M.C.

Ian thinks he knows it, but has to use his 50:50. B & D are eliminated, and while he thinks it's 2 Live Crew, he wants to be more certain before guessing.
He vaguely recalls that a member of 2 Live Crew had a name that sounded like "Luke" and spends what seems like an eternity agonizing over trying to figure out what his actual name was exactly. After almost ten minutes, he finally figures it out (Luther Campbell), and he pulls the trigger on A, and wins $250,000
