Rolling Stone Almost-Impossible Rock & Roll Quiz

Here is the link

Link


I got 38 correct. Some I had mixed up, some are impossible, some I should have known and a couple I got lucky. I actually thought I did worse but still not too bad.

You may know the original title of Metallica's Kill 'Em All, but are you sure you can name the final retail cost of Tom Petty's 1981 album Hard Promises? Challenge yourself to four decades of the trickiest, weirdest and most off-the-wall trivia questions ever in our fifty-eight question quiz, and tabulate your own rock & roll IQ.

33. Not bad considering music trivia isn't nearly as strong of a point for me as movie trivia.
