Hi Ignatius, 

Just to add to Chris' answer. 

We do accept 'drôles de bruits' and take a look at my answer to another student  to see the explanation of this particular expression -

Hope this helps!

Drôle has a different connotation than rigolo. It's "funny" in the direction of "strange", whereas rigolo is just funny without that off-ish taste.
