Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Break Down the Walls"

Answer: Youth of Today

American hardcore punk band Youth of Today were originally active between 1985 and 1990, but have had a number of subsequent runs of differing durations. "Break Down the Walls" is a song from their 1986 album of the same name.

"Break Down the Walls" plays as Matthew goes next door to try to patch things up with Danielle, and we are introduced to Kelly, who used to both work with and date Danielle.
2. "Twilight Zone"

Answer: 2 Unlimited

Dutch dance act 2 Unlimited enjoyed their biggest success in the early-to-mid 1990s when the duo was made up of Ray Slijngaard and Anita Doth. Their debut album "Get Ready!", from which the single "Twilight Zone" was released, reached the top ten in the UK and a handful of other European countries.

"Twilight Zone" plays as Matthew, Eli and Klitz are in the diner, and Matthew decides that he is going to go to the convention in Las Vegas and try to persuade Danielle to come back. We then see the three friends driving to Sin City and nervously enter the convention, clearly feeling out of place.
3. "Turn of the Century"

Answer: Pete Yorn

Born on 27th July 1974 in New Jersey, singer-songwriter Pete Yorn gained international recognition when his debut album "Musicforthemorningafter" was released in 2001. The song "Turn of the Century" features on his second album "Day I Forgot".

"Turn of the Century" plays at the convention as Matthew sees Danielle talking to Kelly, walks over to them and says to Danielle "I just want to let you know, I know who you really are". He places a piece of paper in her hand and continues "And you're better than this" before walking out and heading back home with Eli and Klitz. Danielle opens up the piece of paper and sees that is the drawing she did of herself when she was in the diner with Matthew earlier in the movie.
4. "Funk #49"

Answer: James Gang

American rock band James Gang were formed in Ohio in 1966. "Funk #49" was one of their two hit songs, the other being "Walk Away".

"Funk #49" plays as Matthew is running from Hugo Posh's house having nabbed the award trophy that Kelly believes is rightfully his. As Matthew reaches the road, we see Kelly driving off, having clearly set Matthew up.
5. "Lady Marmalade"

Answer: LaBelle

Named after their lead singer Patti LaBelle, the American all-female group LaBelle released the single "Lady Marmalade" in 1974. The song has been covered numerous times since, the most famous probably being the version released in 2001 by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mưa, and Pink that was used in the movie "Moulin Rouge!".

The LaBelle version of "Lady Marmalade" plays as Matthew and Danielle are at the scholarship dinner. Having been unknowingly given a hallucinogenic stimulant, Matthew is a much more confident version of himself, and we see him performing a series of interesting dances moves as Danielle stands near him, clearly feeling slightly awkward, drinking her champagne.
6. "Sweet Home Alabama"

Answer: Lynyrd Skynyrd

The career of the original lineup of American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, which was formed in Florida in 1964, was cut tragically short when Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines were killed in an airplane crash in 1977. Their 1974 earworm "Sweet Home Alabama" only reached number eught in the US Billboard Hot 100, but continues to be one of the most recognisable and loved songs today.

"Sweet Home Alabama" plays as Matthew realises that Kelly has cleared out the "Operation Get Samnang" account, and has made off with the money. We see a shot of Kelly driving in his car, smoking a cigar, clearly pleased that he has in some part made back the money that Matthew cost him when he persuaded Danielle to leave her previous life.
7. "What's Going On"

Answer: Marvin Gaye

Born Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. on 2nd April 1939 in Washington DC, American singer-songwriter Marvin Gaye was a driving force in the Motown sound of the 1960s, releasing singles such as "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". "What's Going On" was released in 1971 as the lead single from his eleventh studio album of the same name.

"What's Going On" plays as Matthew and Danielle greet April and Ferrari at the airport, and we see another scene where Matthew and Danielle visit Hugo Posh's house so that Matthew can return the award trophy he stole from him earlier in the movie, and make a deal with Hugo that will see him giving Matthew $25,000 by Sunday.
8. "Hootchie Cootchie Man"

Answer: Muddy Waters

Known professionally as Muddy Waters, American blues singer-songwriter McKinley Morganfield was born on 4th April 1913 in Mississippi. Written by Willie Dixon, "Hootchie Cootchie Man" was released in 1954, and remains Muddy Waters' biggest hit.

"Hootchie Cootchie Man" plays as Matthew knocks on Danielle's door to pick up the girls for prom, and out walk Danielle, April, and Ferrari, all looking very glamorous, and Matthew introduces April and Ferrari to their prom dates, Klitz and Eli respectively.
9. "Lucky Man"

Answer: The Verve

Fronted by the charismatic Richard Ashcroft, the English rock band The Verve were founded in Wigan in 1990, and enjoyed success throughout the 1990s. "Lucky Man" was released as the third single from the band's multi-platinum selling third studio album "Urban Hymns".

"Lucky Man" plays during the prom scene as Matthew enjoys a dance with Danielle whilst Eli, Klitz, April and Ferrari are obtaining the various pieces of footage they need to produce the video to satisfy the deal that Matthew has made with Hugo Posh.
10. "Baba O'Riley"

Answer: The Who

Widely considered as one of the best and most influential rock bands of all-time, The Who are best known for their line-up of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. Often referred to as "Teenage Wasteland", their 1971 single "Baba O'Riley" is taken from their fifth studio album "Who's Next".

"Baba O'Riley" plays at the end of the movie, as we see the Westport High School kids signing their yearbooks, with Matthew finally having come up with the perfect wording to complete his "I will always remember..." quote - "the three legs of the tripod". This refers to a motivational speech made by Eli earlier in the movie, and a reference to a fact that without any one of them, all three of the friends will fall. We also see that, due to his deal with Hugo Posh, Matthew was able to get Samnang to America, and secure his own "scholarship" to Georgetown, as he drives into the campus in his brand new convertible.
