Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The song opens with the words: "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold And she's buying a stairway to heaven" Who wrote this classic?

Answer: Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin, a British rock band formed in 1968, was mainly active during the 1970s and broke up in 1980 following band member John Bonham's death. "Stairway to Heaven" is one of their best known tracks and comes from their untitled fourth album from 1971. All nine of their albums reached the top ten of the American Billboard 200, with six reaching the top of that chart. All the other artists listed did versions of the song.

The photo shows the gondola, part of a dirigible or airship. A zeppelin was the name given to rigid-framed airships built by the German company Luftschiffbau Zeppelin, taking its name from its founder Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin. It was active at the beginning of the 20th century.
2. "Living easy, living free Season ticket on a one-way ride Asking nothing, leave me be Taking everything in my stride Don't need reason, don't need rhyme Ain't nothing I'd rather do Going down, party time My friends are gonna be there too, yeah" Which Australian heavy metal rock band wrote and sang this song?

Answer: AC/DC

The song is "Highway to Hell". AC/DC were formed in 1973 by guitarist Malcolm Young with his then 15-year old brother Angus as lead guitar. The band's chauffeur Bon Scott became lead singer and helped cultivate the band's socially maladjusted image. They have spawned many sound-alikes over the years.

Opening track on AC/DC's album of the same name, "Highway to Hell" was released in 1979. It refers to the arduous nature of constantly being on the road as a band.

The photo clue is the word 'rectifier'. A rectifier is an electrical device for converting AC (alternating current) to DC (direct current), which is also the source of the band's name.
3. "I'm taking my right with destiny Willing to play my part Living with painful memories Loving with all my heart Made in heaven, made in heaven It was all meant to be, yeah Made in heaven, made in heaven That's what they say" The song comes from this artist's debut solo album "Mr. Bad Guy" in 1985. For which band was he lead singer until his death in 1991?

Answer: Queen

British rock group Queen were formed in 1970, achieved success with hits like "Bohemian Rhapsody", "We Will Rock You" and "We are the Champions", and became one of the most successful stadium rock bands during the 1980s.

Following his death in 1991, the band used the song's title for their 1995 posthumous album "Made in Heaven". Anticipating his death from AIDS, Freddie Mercury recorded as much of the vocals as he could and instructed the other band members to finish the tracks later. Short of material, the band re-worked the original "Made in Heaven" track to sound more Queen-like and included it in the 1995 album.

The 1995 album's "Heaven for Everyone" was also a re-worked song, being a version of Queen drummer Roger Taylor's song for his group The Cross. With Freddie Mercury vocals, it originally appeared in the 1988 album "Shove It".
4. "Heaven help the boy who never had a home Heaven help the girl who walks the street alone And Heaven help the roses if the bombs begin to fall Lord, won't you help us all" Who sang this song in 1970?

Answer: Stevie Wonder

"Heaven Help Us All" was one of three hits from Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, and Delivered" album of 1970. American musician Stevie Wonder has been producing records since the 1960s. Although he is a songwriter, the soul song "Heaven Help Us All" was one of a number of his hits written by Ron Miller. The other artists listed have all produced their own version of the song.

5. "Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes When the night is over, like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone, gone, gone" Who sang about bats in 1977?

Answer: Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf is the stage name of American musician and occasional actor Michael Lee Aday. Initially he mixed band music with stage productions, for example, playing the parts of Eddie and Dr. Everett Scott in the musical "The Rocky Horror Show". He also acted the part of Eddie in the 1975 film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". Musically, he is best known for his "Bat Out of Hell' album trilogy, which was composed mostly by Jim Steinman.

The single was first released in 1979 from the 1977 "Bat Out of Hell" album. There was a Bruce Springsteen connection as members of his E Street Band played on the track alongside Todd Rundgren's Utopia.
6. "Would you know my name If I saw you in heaven Would it be the same If I saw you in heaven I must be strong And carry on 'Cause I know I don't belong Here in heaven" Who co-wrote and was first to sing this song in 1991?

Answer: Eric Clapton

"Tears In Heaven" was written with Will Jennings following the death of Clapton's four-year-old son Conor. It was written for the soundtrack of the 1991 film "Rush". The single was released in 1992.

British musician, singer-songwriter and guitarist Eric Clapton has been active since the 1960s and is unique (as of 2014) in being inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times - as an individual and as a member of the bands Cream and The Yardbirds. He has been associated with many other bands.
7. "I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour But Heaven knows, I'm miserable now I was looking for a job and then I found a job And Heaven knows, I'm miserable now" These cheery lyrics from 1984 were sung by which British alternative rock band?

Answer: The Smiths

The Smiths were formed in 1982 by vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, who shared song-writing duties. They have been lauded as one of Britain's more influential 1980s indie rock bands, eschewing the synthesisers and dance music of the time in favour of guitar riffs and ironic lyrics. Their songs were not without controversy - the B-side of the "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" single was called "Suffer Little Children" and was about the notorious Moors Murders.
8. "An unforeseen future nestled somewhere in time Unsuspecting victims no warnings, no signs Judgement day the second coming arrives Before you see the light you must die" The lyrics come from the opening track on this thrash metal band's 1988 album "South of Heaven". But whose album is it?

Answer: Slayer

Slayer was formed in 1981 by Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King, pioneers of American thrash metal. Fame came in 1986 with their album "Reign in Blood". The quoted lyrics come from the song "South of Heaven". Their usual choice of lyrics were typically dark and would occasionally provoke music censorship such as album bans and lawsuits.
9. "Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth Ooh, heaven is a place on earth They say in heaven love comes first We'll make heaven a place on earth Ooh, heaven is a place on earth" The question is not who sang this but which successful all-female American rock band was she lead singer of prior to this hit from her solo career?

Answer: The Go-Go's

Formed in 1978 and very much part of the Californian punk scene, the Go-Go's became the first all-female band writing their own songs and playing their own instruments, to top the Billboard 200. This they did with their debut album "Beauty and the Beat" in 1981. "Heaven is a Place on Earth" topped the Billboard Hot 100 and was a single from Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven on Earth" album released in 1987.
10. "Mama, take this badge off of me I can't use it anymore. It's gettin' dark, too dark to see I feel I'm knockin' on heaven's door." A much-covered song, who wrote and sang it originally?

Answer: Bob Dylan

The song "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" was composed by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 film "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" and then released as a single. American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has been producing music since the 1960s and was noted for his lyrics which reflected the social unrest of the times. Since then he has explored many areas of American song, become a major influence in several music genre as well as getting into print with his writing and art.
