You got 10 out of 10
Nice work! You're pretty much the king of music nicknames. Or the queen! Or the boss! (You get it.)

Dylan may have been know as the king of Folk but that title should have belonged to Woody Guthrie.

#2 is not right...Elvis is The King Of Rock n Roll not Chuck Berry...Chuck Berry is the Father of Rock n Roll

You left out Paul Whiteman, the King of Jazz; and Benny Goodman, the King of Swing.

Also, you list the correct answer to Chuck Berry as "The King of Rock and Roll," even though that is Elvis Presley's title. Up until now, I have NEVER heard anyone refer to him as "The King of Rock."
