I was forwarded this link by my cousin a few days ago. I scored 101 1/2, but I'm probably in the target age group.

I'd just like to add that there IS a link. It's in the middle of his post. It just took a long time (at least for me) to load a lovely red X for me to see.

But I was sooooo ready to call you on not providing a link

I did this one yesterday. I only scored a 51. I started out strong, but was lost on most of them. I was also in a library where I couldn't really start humming or really speak the words. More than a few of the answers I would have gotten if I spent more time.

I really need a 90's version of this game. I would SO rock that one.

81. The thing I'm proud of is that I only missed a couple I shouldda known.

If you happen to see this, there now is one there. Link at the top of the page.

I got a 91.45, and that's with a 30% "generational penalty" or something. Yeah, I know too much about music.

64.5. See?

Linky here.

I just couldn't hum some of the songs, even though I knew them... I don't remember much of the 80's. And not even in the Corey Feldman way. o.o

So I guess it's safe to say, I don't love the 80's.

Straight up 35. I missed the Hotel California one. I think I'll go slam my head in the door now.

Got a 57 myself - it's times like these I wish I had started watching MTV before 1987. Of course, I was seven when I started watching it, so take that for what it's worth.

And where were the token 80's teen pop songs? No Debbie Gibson or Tiffany? BAH.

Jesus, only a 46. Reading the answer sheet afterwards was arguably the most humiliating experience of my life....I missed at least thirty songs I knew.

101. I was too stupid to type wienerboard.com into the "Where did you find us?" box, so no bonus points for me.

The whole experience makes me wish I had some eighties music at work today though... One line each from 100 different songs can cause some serious nostalgia.

Yeah, I got 104.5, but I didn't fill in the referral bonus box. I got 10 points just for Hotel California. Plus an extra 4 for knowing the Mad Max song.

24.25%

I got a bonus 10% for being too young to remember any of this.

I'm kicking myself at a couple for missing.

Bring on the 90's quiz, and we'll see if I can't clean up there.

Score = 92...but shame on that dude for not putting a disclaimer (or smart ass comment) on Walk This Way...that's no 80's song...but then again many of these songs were "covers", so I guess it all evens out..."Eyem yer Venus, Eyem yer fiyahh that's yer desiahh"...ah shit. That's always a tough one to get out of my head...

83. Warm smell of colitas Rising up through the air
Ok either 1)You've read The Straight Dope or 2)You are a god. Either way 10 points.


Redemption! ha ha ha ha...I've never understood why that one was such a mystery. Not like the words to Twilight Zone or nothing...

I got 100.5, with the referral bonus and a little help from Mrs. JJD. (especially on the chick songs). Should've gotten the 10 points for Hotel California but for misspelling.

I got 110.5. There were a few that I missed because of slight misspelling (I pluralized 'mag'). There were also several where I had to kick myself afterward for missing.

75 here. I really didn't pay attention to the "popular" music then. If it had more synth pop and industrial, I'd be up in the 100s.
