About This Quiz

The era of Pink Floyd, ABBA, The Ramones, and Blondie introduced many rockers whose careers have been long and illustrious, but there's also some recognizable one-hit wonders. From the lovesick "My Sharona" by The Knack to the heartbreaking "Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin, there are many tracks we've been jamming to for decades possibly not realizing that their artists were flashes in the pan, or perhaps well-respected musicians who never quite managed to have other chart hits. That goes true for other genres of '70s music too.

Are you a self-proclaimed '70s music expert who knows the story behind the classic "American Pie"? Can you name the man who told the nation all about "Kung Fu Fighting"? What about the Grammy-winner behind "Turn the Beat Around"? If the answer is yes then you'll have no problem getting through this quiz, but if you have no clue then settle down, 'cause this is a crash course in the meteoric rise and fall of these '70s rockers. 

We suggest you "Play that Funky Music," "Mr. Big Stuf,f" and get groovin' on this quiz cause "Love Hurts", but taking this quiz is like "Dancing in the Moonlight". Expert or enthusiast, go ahead and test your knowledge of '70s tunes.
