Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"

Answer: The Band


This was originally a "B" side for the song "Up on Cripple Creek". It was written by Robbie Robertson (a Canadian) about the final year of the American Civil War.

The song was re-recorded several times but was originally put out by The Band, which was a Canadian rock group. The Band served as Bob Dylan's backup for two years prior to going out on its own and recording an album.
2. "Free Bird"

Answer: Lynyrd Skynyrd


"If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?"

That's the song's opening, and it turned out to be a fitting open as not long after the release, a plane crash killed three members of the band and one of their roadies.

The song, when released, quickly became a hit, reaching number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It re-entered the charts at least twice more over the coming years, including once as a live version.
3. "Ramblin' Man"

Answer: The Allman Brothers


The Allman Brothers were the perfect Southern Rock Band. They mixed in rock stylings with country, jazz and blues sounds to form their own unique sounds.

All of that could be heard on "Ramblin' Man", which jumped all the way to number two on the U.S. charts from Billboard magazine. The song features very distinctive dual guitar harmonies throughout.
4. "La Grange"

Answer: ZZ Top


Sure there are better known ZZ Top songs, but we couldn't have this quiz being too easy now, could we?

That said, this is one of the band's better, lesser-known songs. The song, a story about a night at a brothel in La Grange, Texas, wasn't a hit, but the brothel was. The brothel also inspired the movie "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas".
5. "Keep On Smilin'"

Answer: Wet Willie


The "b" side of this was "Soul Jones" when it was released as a single. It was also on the album of the same name.

This song was one of three top 40 hits for the band, reaching as high as number ten on the Billboard hot 100 charts.
6. "Two Lane Highway"

Answer: Pure Prairie League


This was before the band recruited Vince Gill (Who would go on to become a huge star as a country singer.) The band was still relatively new, and this would be its first hit, albeit minor.

The song was the titular track off the album, that had a Norman Rockwell painting for its cover.
7. "Black Betty"

Answer: Ram Jam


"Black Betty" was a remake of the same song from Leadbelly. The original song was less than a minute long and never charted. Ram Jam's version saw continued radio play through the rest of the century and was very popular in sports venues.
8. "Large Time"

Answer: Atlanta Rhythm Section


This is the perfect Southern Rock song. It references several other rock bands, and talks about the 'large time' they had jamming together. It came off their seventh studio album, "Champagne Jam".

The song was released not long after the plane crash that killed most of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and was a tribute song to that band.
9. "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"

Answer: Charlie Daniels Band


This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It's got everything, a fiddle solo, the devil, fierce competition, simply the best.

Songwriter Charlie Daniels said the song was inspired by a poem, "The Mountain Whippoorwill", by Stephen Vincent Benet.
10. "Fall Of The Peacemakers"

Answer: Molly Hatchet


I guess I had to include this just to prove the genre made it out of the 1970s.
This song, with three different guitars jamming, starts off slow, but ends in an uproar with all three guitars playing different parts on the finale.

The song, while mentioning JFK and other people, was primarily a tribute to John Lennon, and referencing the Beatles' fall after his quote about being more popular than Jesus.
