About This Quiz
Do you know what was great about '80s music? Everything. It was a heck of a decade. "99 Red Balloons" and "Blame it on the Rain." New Kids on the Block and Fine Young Cannibals. The powerhouse that is Rick Astley. Oh, it was a legendary time. Some might even say mythological. See what we did there? Yeah, you see what we did.
When you dig deep into mythology you find a lot of interesting and diverse creatures, and in much the same way the '80s were chock-full of interesting and diverse pop songs. You can see how this is starting to come together. The more we know about your taste in '80s music, the more we can nail down just what beast from mythology really represents your inner self. You might be surprised to see how your reactions to David Bowie and George Michael point you more toward werewolves and further away from griffins. Of course, there's only one way to get your final answer, to see with a scary degree of accuracy just what fantastic beast that never truly was is hidden deep in your musical soul. Take the quiz, get into your groove, and unleash your inner mythological beast.
