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.



Molly, Stacy and Daffney all in WWE? I suddenly lost all my will to complain about anything regarding the WWE. Hope I don't lose my street cred for this.

Final score of 65. Bleh.

It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner, who mocks him and laughs at him as he is repeatedly crushed and maimed. I hope you enjoy it!"

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.



Pepa: Hello. I'm the mother of the notorious Crossroads Killer. When my son comes home after one of his famous crimes, his clothes are just filthy.
[Pepa holds up a bloody shirt. The police arrive.]
Policia I Spot: Where are the clothes your son wore -
Policia II Spot: At the time of the murder?
[Pepa takes a clean shirt out of the dryer.]
Pepa: Right here. Sparkling clean.
Policia I Spot: No trace of blood.
Policia II Spot: Or guts.
Policia I Spot: Unbelievable!
[Pepa holds up a box of detergent.]
Pepa: Ecce Homo. It's unbelievable.

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.

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.

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.

Saw them a few years back, without Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and they were so f'n great it made me queezy. I welcome a comeback and hope it's solid.
