10/12; I did well despite having to guess on most. I grew up in the 70's but did not know a lot of these songs but recognized the band names.

I'm the other way around. I knew MOST of the songs but back then I rarely paid attention to the band's name.

8/12 - disappointed with that result. Saw Alive N Kickin perfom a number of times in New York in the 1970's and 1980's

I wish they had mentioned Precious and few by Climax as well as Traces by Dennis Yost and the Classics 4 also they forgot what a year for Karen And Richard Carpenter
Koreth Randall 7 months ago
There was so much good rock and roll music back then, I doubt they could have included them all or this would have been a very long quiz! Crosby Stills & Nash, Jackson 5, Eric Burdon, R Dean Taylor and so many more.

Wasn't Precious and Few by Climax a bit later? 72 or 73?
MarkSpeck Koreth 18 days ago
Precious and Few was indeed 1972.

12/12 I remembered some because they are on my "songs I absolutely hate and I hope I NEVER hear them again" list. I'll never ever forget "Ma Belle Amie'....no matter how hard I try.......and this quiz sure didn't help.

Who cares about this quiz! Nobody knows these groups and if somebody is perfect on this quiz they are lying!

Take it easy. This is the music some of us grew up with.
Koreth Geronimo 7 months ago
Several of us got 12/12 as did I. I grew up with this era of music and bought all these songs in record form (45RPM). I even remember the price was 79 cents each + 3 cents tax for a total of 82 cents. Still have them in a box in the garage!

Badfinger, great band, Beatles groomed them.
MarkSpeck max 18 days ago
Some people actually thought Badfinger was the Beatles under another name, since the sound was so similar.

7/12 know the songs, went blank on band names.
