Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 'One' - Perhaps one of electronic/house band Daft Punk's greatest hits was which song that also appeared in a Victoria's Secret commercial?

Answer: One More Time

Daft Punk, the French electronic duo often referred to as the driving force behind French house music, released "One More Time" as one of the early singles on their second album, "Discovery". "One More Time" was one of the major dance hits of 2000, reaching #1 on the Billboard Dance Singles chart. "Discovery" has since become one of the most popular electronic albums released in the early 2000s.
"One More Time" was later rereleased on the "Alive 2007" live album which won a Grammy for 'Best Electronic/Dance Album' in 2009.
2. 'Two' - The Spice Girls had a #1 UK Singles hit with this song, the third single off their debut album. What was its name?

Answer: 2 Become 1

Unlike the pop-sounding, upbeat songs previously released by the ever-popular girl group ("Wannabe" and "Say You'll Be There"), "2 Become 1" was the girls' first single to be more laid-back and romantic. Formed around sexual themes from the girls' pasts, the song proved to be a Christmas #1 hit for the Spice Girls, the first of two consecutive titles (the second being held by "Too Much" on their second album). The music video for this single brought the girls to New York City.

While the girls sang in front of various different locations (actually in front of a green screen), the world went by around them at high speeds.
3. 'Three' - Which American rock band had a hit with the song "Kryptonite" in 2000?

Answer: Three Doors Down

The band's break-out hit, "Kryptonite" brought the Mississippi band Three Doors Down to relative fame in the year 2000. The song went platinum and reached #1 in the UK and on two different Billboard charts. Similarly, the band's first CD, "The Better Life", went six times platinum in the United States. Three Doors Down wouldn't achieve a similar feat for another four years until their song "Here Without You" was released on their second album, "Away From the Sun".
"Kryptonite" later appeared in the Playstation 2 game "Singstar Pop" and as downloadable content for "Rock Band 2".
4. 'Four' - Madonna collaborated with which famous artist on her 2008 single "4 Minutes"?

Answer: Justin Timberlake

Showing up as a #1 single in Canada, the US (on two different Billboard charts), the UK, and Australia, "4 Minutes" was the first major song to emerge from Madonna's eleventh album, "Hard Candy". Although the song was written and performed by Madonna and Justin Timberlake, Timbaland was also involved in the performance.

The song, since its release, has gone platinum (sometimes double platinum) in certain countries. Madonna's follow-up single, "Give It 2 Me" (also a numbered title...aren't I sneaky?), also achieved popularity but never reached the same amount of airplay (though it reached #1 on two dance-related Billboard charts.
5. 'Five' - In 2005 (look at that, another '5'), which band won the Grammy Award for 'Best New Artist' for their album "Songs About Jane"?

Answer: Maroon 5

Picking up a number of Grammy wins and nominations over the course of their first two CDs, Maroon 5 has become a pop group to keep an eye on. With Adam Levine's uniquely noticeable voice, their singles have been known to get frequent airplay. Their first CD, "Songs About Jane", was on five different Billboard charts (reaching #1 on two of them) and went six times platinum in the United States.

Their second album, "It Won't Be Soon Before Long", didn't meet the same popularity, but nonetheless sold well.
6. 'Six' - What band debuted with the one-hit wonder single "Inside Out"?

Answer: Eve 6

Emerging in 1998, Eve 6's "Inside Out" was released on the band's self-titled second album. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and the band reached platinum with the same CD. The band released two more CDs before breaking up in 2004 though neither ("Horrorscope" and "It's All in Your Head") really broke through resulting in their dropping from the RCA label.

The song "Inside Out" has since been released as a downloadable single for "Rock Band 2".
7. 'Seven' - Which of these songs became a hit single for The White Stripes?

Answer: Seven Nation Army

The White Stripes' fourth album, "Elephant", brought "Seven Nation Army" along with it for the ride, and upon its release in 2003, the album won the Grammy for 'Best Alternative Music Album' and gained massive critical backing. Additionally, the song "Seven Nation Army" took home the Grammy for 'Best Rock Song' at the same event and appeared at #1 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock chart. Often regarded as the band's most popular song, "Seven Nation Army" has become a staple in the rock genre since the year 2000.

The bands next two albums, "Get Behind Me Satan" and "Icky Thump" would later go on to win the band another two Grammys.
8. 'Eight' - What is the only Beatles song to use the number 'eight' in its title?

Answer: Eight Days a Week

One of the Beatles' many number 1 hits (on Billboard's Hot 100), "Eight Days a Week" was released on the Beatles' fourth album, "Beatles For Sale" in 1964. It was quite possibly the most famous song from the album which, in itself, knocked their previous record off the top of the Billboard charts. Lennon and McCartney wrote the song in their recording studio, opting to experiment with it rather than pre-write the song.

This method became prominent in many of the band's future works, especially in their later Abbey Road days. According to some sources, the band rarely played it live as they thought it wasn't among their greater works. Nonetheless, the song remained popular in the US.
9. 'Nine' - Panic at the Disco released which single off their second album, "Pretty. Odd."?

Answer: Nine in the Afternoon

"Nine in the Afternoon" brought (questionably) rock band Panic (sans the exclamation mark) at the Disco back to the new music scene in 2008. This single appeared in numerous different TV shows and commercials though their CD didn't need much hype after the success of their sleeper hit "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" which slowly but surely emerged as a popular debut.

Their second CD, "Pretty. Odd." departed from the band's earlier 'theatrical' release with a more laid back sound. "Nine in the Afternoon" happens to be one of the more upbeat songs on the CD.

It appeared in the master track listing for "Rock Band 2". The music video for the single took place in many nonsensical different places with the band wearing costumes a la 'Sgt. Peppers'.

It was nominated for an MTV Video Award in 2008.
10. 'Ten' - "Ten Speed (Of God's Blood and Burial)" was written by which rock band?

Answer: Coheed and Cambria

Appearing on the album "Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness" (agreed...it's a long name. In all fairness I copied and pasted it to save myself the time), "Ten Speed (Of God's Blood and Burial)" was the second of only two singles from the band's third album, the first being the well-known "Welcome Home". Like many of Coheed and Cambria's songs, this one followed the complex storyline that made up the album. All of the songs on each of Coheed's albums are written by the band to ensure a sense of continuity through the tracks.

These, in turn, tie in to the band's series of graphic novels. Both singles for the album appeared on "Rock Band".
