Question 1 of 10

Question 2 of 10
2. With a bit of "Time" (and hopefully no "Brain Damage"), you can "Speak to Me" and let me know which rock band I need to spend my "Money" on to get hold of the album the photo refers to. What is the band? Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. I am looking for the name of an album. The photo hasn't helped me since "I Still Haven't Found What I am Looking For", however maybe you can help? No? You too? Well, "With or Without You" I still need to know. What is the album?
Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. I feel like Marvin the "Paranoid Android". Here I am "Climbing Up the Walls" trying to remember this band's name. "No Surprises" there, you think, as you look around for the "Karma Police". What band is this? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. I am struggling to work out the name of this band. It seems I "Train in Vain" to improve my memory. It is like being "Lost in the Supermarket" looking for "Koka Kola" and listening to someone say "London Calling" over the tannoy. You can never quite find it. What band's name has slipped my mind?
Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. "I Don't Want to Know" the name of the album for this one - the photo points to that. It is the band name I am after. "Don't Stop", you can either "Go Your Own Way" or follow "The Chain" of clues. What is the band of my "Dreams"? Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Imagine being a "Rock 'n' Roll Star". Your music might "Live Forever" or it could just "Slide Away" into obscurity. Hmm, 'Definitely Maybe' in my case. What is the name of this "Shakermaker" group?
Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" to know the name of this album? "I Know There's an Answer" however it's slipped my mind. "God Only Knows", maybe I need to clear my head with a sail on the "Sloop John B". What is the answer to this one? Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. There I go again, my "Big Mouth Strikes Again". "Frankly, Mr Shankly", "I Know It's Over" now that "The Queen is Dead". Pick over my ramblings and the photo to pick the correct band.
Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. And now "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" question. Well, just the end of the quiz. It would be "Strange" otherwise. This album could be "The One I Love" with the "Finest Worksong" in it but what is it called? Hint
