Classic Rock Trivia Questions

1. Brenda Ann Spencer killed a school principal and a custodian as well as injuring eight children and a police officer in 1979 and served as the inspiration for this song with a piano intro. What is the song?

From Quiz
First Impressions

Answer: I Don't Like Mondays

Spencer was 16 years old and lived across from the elementary school on which she opened fire, giving the Boomtown Rats their biggest hit and second UK number one. Bob Geldof of the Rats originally composed the number as a reggae song but that all changed when he added grand piano to the track in the studio.

2. Which instrument made an appearance on both "It's A Long Way To The Top" by AC/DC and "Anthem" by Sensational Alex Harvey Band, showing the roots of band members?

From Quiz You Want To Play A What?

Answer: Bagpipes

Alex Harvey was from Glasgow and AC/DC's Bon Scott was born in Forfar, so it's no surprise they admired the bagpipes, but while "Anthem" used the London-Scottish Territorial Army Regiment to play the pipes, Scott actually played them himself on the AC/DC track. When Corporation Lane in Melbourne was renamed ACDC Lane, bagpipers played "It's A Long Way To The Top" as part of the opening ceremony.

3. From the album, "A Nod Is As Good As a a Blind Horse", which band asked us to "Stay With Me" in 1971?

From Quiz You Get Many A Good Tune From An Old Fart

Answer: Faces

Faces changed their name from Small Faces after vocalist/guitarist Steve Marriott left the band to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton. Marriott was replaced by Rod Stewart on vocals and Ronnie Wood on guitar and this was their first major hit, charting on both sides of the Atlantic. Faces certainly had a star studded line up as apart from Stewart and Wood they featured Kenney Jones (future Who member) on drums, Ian McLagan (future Rolling Stones sideman) on keyboards and Ronnie Lane (future Slim Chance member as well as collaborations with Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend) on bass. Question by 480154st

4. Hopefully this opener won't test you too much. Which act released "Back In Black" in 1980?

From Quiz Classic Rock Albums

Answer: AC/DC

"Back In Black" has a great title track. It was released after the death of Bon Scott as a tribute with Brian Johnston as new vocalist.

5. What was the first rock and roll song? If you asked some 1950s disc jockeys they might mention a song titled "Gee" so, gee, do you think you could fly straight to the group that recorded it?

From Quiz Buried Treasures of Rock and Roll, Volume II

Answer: The Crows

Groups with bird names were popular in the 1950s and the Crows, a doo-wop group from New York, were among the first. "Gee" was recorded in February, 1953 and hit the record charts in 1954. It first became a hit in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the city that would become the heart of doo-wop music.

6. Lynyrd Skynyrd had a massive hit with which song that was also the title of a film starring Reese Witherspoon, Josh Lucas and Patrick Dempsey?

From Quiz Turn Down That Stereo

Answer: Sweet Home Alabama

Lynyrd Skynyrd released the track in June 1974, 12 months after it was recorded. The film, which featured the song, was released in 2002.

7. "Sorrow Saved My Life Tonight" appears to be a fusion of one song title and the second half of another. Determine what the two songs should be, and then can you assign them respectively to the correct artist?

From Quiz Why Have All My Elton Joel Bowie MP3 Files Fused?

Answer: David Bowie / Elton John

The two songs are "Sorrow" (1973) and "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" (1975). "Sorrow" was a UK number one and US number three hit for Bowie. The song was originally released by the McCoys in 1965 but it was British group The Merseys that made it a hit in the UK in 1966 where it reached number four. This was the only single released from "Pin-ups" (1973) Bowie's seventh album which featured cover songs from the "London Era" of 1965-68. "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" tells the story through the song lyrics (written by Bernie Taupin) of a time in 1969 when Elton John was to be married to Linda Woodrow. He knew this was going to be a mistake and one night over drinks with Taupin and Long John Baldry, the latter talked him out of getting married. Baldry is the "Someone" in the title and is referred to in the song as "Sugar Bear". This song was the only single off the album "Captain Fantastic and The Brown Dirt Cowboy"(1975) which was the first album to debut at Number one of the US Billboard chart.

8. Ann Wilson joined a band that became known as Hocus Pocus after she became a member in the early 1970's. By what name had the band previously been known as, that it later reverted back to?

From Quiz Let's Rock This Town!

Answer: Heart

Later, Heart was joined by Ann's sister, Nancy in 1974. Earlier names for the group were The Army, White Heart and Hocus Pocus. The name White Heart was taken from a compilation of science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke's short stories, "Tales From The White Hart".

9. Blues/rock musician Jeff Healy was Canadian-born. Probably best known for his role in the 1989 movie "Road House", starring Patrick Swayze, and for the song "Angel Eyes" what was Jeff Healy's disability?

From Quiz A Most Eclectic Mixture Of Rock Music

Answer: he was blind

The opening lines to "Angel Eyes": "Girl, you're looking, fine tonight, and every guy has got you in his sights. What you're doing, with a clown like me, is surely one of life's little mysteries So tonight I'll ask the stars above, "How did I ever win your love?" What did I do? What did I say, To turn your angel eyes my way?" Although Jeff Healy was not born without his vision, he was just shy of his first birthday when retinoblastoma (a rare eye cancer) left him blind. This didn't stop him from learning to play guitar at the age of three, laying it on his lap, nor from forming his own band by the time he was fifteen. Jeff Healy passed away in 2008, from the genetic disorder that caused cancers to form all over various parts of his body.

10. The first act on stage is the Rolling Stones. They were always hard to please, so the song that they have chosen is rather apt! Which song are they going to perform?

From Quiz A Classic Rock Potpourri

Answer: (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" was released as a single in 1965 and made number one in both USA and England. The song was written by group members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. "Glad All Over "was recorded by the Dave Clark Five, "No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits and "Wild Thing" by the Troggs.

11. Which group had a top ten hit in 1970 with "Lola"?

From Quiz The Classic Rock Jukebox #7

Answer: The Kinks

Ray Davies was forced to interrupt the band's American tour and travel to London because the original recording had the words "Coca Cola". The BBC had a rule against product placement in songs, so it was rerecorded with the words "cherry cola". "I met her in a club down in old Soho Where you drink champagne It tastes just like Coca Cola, C-O-L-A cola She walked up to me and she asked me to dance I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice She said Lola, L-O-L-A, Lola, L-L-Lola."

12. "Whoa, thought it was a nightmare Lo it's all so true They told me Don't go walkin' slow 'Cause Devil's on the loose." These are the opening lines from which Creedence Clearwater Revival hit?

From Quiz The Classic Rock Jukebox #3

Answer: Run Through the Jungle

When the song was released in 1970, many people thought it was a protest song about the Vietnam War. Lead singer and writer John Fogerty states that it was actually about gun proliferation in America.

13. Which group recorded the song "Pictures of Lily" in 1967?

From Quiz Who Stones the Beatles?

Answer: The Who

The song tells about a young man suffering from insomnia. When he tells his father of his suffering, he is given a picture of Lily. Later, when he asks where he can find her, the father says "Son, now don't be silly. She's been dead since 1929".

14. Three parts to the clue, one answer connecting them - what is it? Davy Jones - 'Headquarters' - 'Last Train to Clarksville'

From Quiz Dave's Fave Raves

Answer: The Monkees

The Monkees were originally formed for a TV show and went on to become one of the top selling bands of the late 60s. Davy Jones was the English member of the American group The Monkees. The other members of the band were: Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork. 'Headquarters' was the band's third album and reached number one on the Billboard 200 and number two in the UK charts.

It is still a staple on most 'oldies' stations around the world.
