    Nothing but one song differentiated this band from the people serving drinks to the customers.

    Nothing but musak emanated from this band - with the exception of one song.

    Nothing but screaming teenagers were paying attention in the audience, until they played "Freebird" and all the parents stood up.

    I'm not sure what the problem is here. You set a task, and got three perfectly good answers. Please explain what 'tell the exatcly' means; we're all trying to help.

    Is this what you mean?

    What we like about the band is nothing but their song.

    Yes, I thought that might be the sort of thing. But it doesn't fit the specification: 'start with Nothing but'. Using your words, but fitting the spec, gives the incorrect Nothing but their song is what we like about the band

    Re: Nothing but

    Nothing but the song is good about this band.

    Mind you, and maybe I'm showing my age, shouldn't they have more than one song?

    Is this the same as "splitting hairs" ?
