Quiz: Massive British Music Challenge

Updated on May 29, 2011

Here's a massive quiz for music lovers

Here's a cross-genre (well sort of) collection of questions about British music (mostly but not all modern). It's the fizziest, bizziest, whizziest, dizziest, qizziest quiz of my collection. Do you think you're up to this challenge? Taking the quiz could be an ego trip, a trip down memory lane, a nostalgia fest or all of those things. Let your mouse run amok!

Of course, exactly what defines British music, in this quiz, is down to me - no appeals allowed.

I hope you enjoy your time on this page - let's go (and watch the points grow)!

This has been such a success from the 'off' that I shall very soon be doing a second British music marathon quiz for the quiz addicts amongst you. Watch this space!

      It was great fun! Thanks for creating such interesting and enjoyable lenses! I did pretty well--and I'm proud to say that besides acing the Led Zep, Rolling Stones, and Beatles questions, I also answered the "Rolling in the Deep" question correctly--having just seen Adele singing it on TV last week!

      Maybe just over half right, I didn't do the math because I only had a few minutes. Love the Rolling Stones and others on here. Some of these musicians are timeless.
