Only got 5/10.. but, I was only 4 in 1974, so my world was more Captain Kangaroo and Bugs Bunny.

9/10 I missed the "Loudest concert" one. The rest I knew cold. Not bad, considering I was only 10 in 1974.

8/10. Got #1 & #6 wrong. The Ramones were more of an underground FM group as compared to mainstream Top-40 rock. 1974. What a year. I wish I could go back.
