Pop Quiz, Hot Shot: How Much Do You Know About Rock Music?

Submitted by: 5cats 7 months ago in Quizzes

40 questions, only 3 were remotely difficult for me... put your music know-how to the test here.

Most questions are fairly easy for big music enthusiasts -- still, it's a walk back to better times in music, with about 35 really solid songs which are well worth remembering, with a bit of minor trivia for each.

If you really want to flex your music history muscle, try this timed quiz -- it's a lot more difficult -- it'll separate the casual listener from the hardcore fan.

95% The two I missed were disco related so I get a pass. Was a DJ at one of the first album rock stations in a southern state in high school. Back when you had to have an FCC 3rd class license to broadcast. Most folks know better than to play trivial pursuit with me about music.

with the photos 100% but if there were no photos to prompt then probably 50/50.

All I know about rock music is what I like and what I don't.

Ooo! Timed quiz wasn't from me, nice, will try and post my (hopefully) excellent score!

1169 / 2500

A lot were actually about movies... that's my defence! Or really trivial gossip about who married whom...

I don't think there has been an easier quiz.
Some even mention the title in the lyrics.
If you can't get it by the lyrics or the picture of the artist(s), you can also get the right answer by ruling out the wrong one.
Now I'll try the timed one.

Ouch

Got 100%, but this was pretty easy. The group or person pictured did the song - so that's a strong hint for those that may be dithering on the right answer, some of the lyrics themselves pointed to the answer, and on one song, the title was in the lyrics.
I much prefer the internet quizzes that tell me how psychopathic, sociopathic or narcissistic I am.

dromed It was super easy, lolz! And like others have mentioned, it has a picture of the band, and sometimes even the title in the lyrics provided. 
One or two were songs I knew but had no idea what the title actually was... 'September' for example. Still guessed it of course.

100%. But I was born in the 60s so I lived all of this music.  Admittedly, 2 of them were just accidents I guessed right.

40/40 on the first one -- too easy. 

2089/2500 on the second one -- I panicked on a few that killed my score.
