About This Quiz

When it comes to men, have you ever noticed that despite your attempts to date outside of your "type," it's inevitable that you end up being attracted to the guys you feel most at home with? The same goes for taste in music. Sure, you might stray into country music territory when your first choice is indie and alternative. However, you do so with the knowledge that your comforting favorites are still waiting for you when you decide to return to the classics. Similarly, everyone has a cheesy song they're embarrassed to own up to (and if we're honest, most people have had a few dates they'd rather not talk about). 

This quiz will cover every aspect of your musical taste — from your most treasured concert merch to the best song for karaoke (you know the tune we're referring to, the one that gets you on stage no matter how shy you're feeling). By teasing apart the layers of your music preferences, we bet that we'll be able to figure out your underlying taste in men. You might find yourself surprised at the overlap between music and men or it might be something you've known all along. Either way, you'll want to crank up whatever jams help you concentrate when you're answering these music-related questions!
