12 out of 15. I had no idea what instrument was used in the Seinfeld theme, what group sang the Carmen San Diego song or how long Paula Cole's song was on the chart. The rest I got, no problem.

12/15 It's interesting that the Replacements were a choice on no. 7 (no I didn't pick them), while Big Star was the correct answer for 10. The Replacements once sang "I never travel too far, without a little Big Star." Someone needs to use a Mats song for a theme.

I'm pretty certain that, early on, That '70's Show featured the Big Star version in the opening credits.

9 out of 15. Still better than I expected to do, since I don't like many of the 90s shows. Please stick to the good, old, true classics! There are plenty of older shows which aren't on anywhere; it would be great if you could pick up some of them.

I had to give up. I didn't watch any of those shows. I was busy in the '90s.
