I scored 39 out of 60 - can you do better? (http://www.worldsbiggestfan.com/playpause/quiz/index.html)

A couple of them are really driving me nuts.

first go around, I got 12/60...but it was only the easy ones (4, 7, 9, 11, 21, and 28). What the hell is 20 and 24, those sound so familiar.

Smash is the best selling independent record of all time according to wikipedia.

I never would have guessed.

I'm at 20/60, at the moment. It's not exactly "indie" music, as much as songs that a club in London plays.

I'm giving up at 27 out of 60, with a few that I feel like I'm close on.

I'm just glad to have guessed #26 immediately. That should give everyone a hint to what #26 is, if you didn't know what it was already.

Cardigans - Lovefool

This is not really indie to me. well this is radio's idea of indie.

What Manic Street Preachers song is #15?

SoulDischarge

I'd rather just watch Nevermind The Buzzcocks.

Holy fuck they have JJ72 on there

I'm at 33/60. I'm tapping out.

Catatonia, Embrace, Ocean Colour Scene, Stereophonics, The Supernaturals, Travis, JJ72, and The Manic Street Preachers are all represented.

Finished it. Feel free to ask if you want any solutions.

So it's pretty much 90% Britpop?

Hahah. I had guessed, from your quiz of a similar nature some time back, that you would do well at this.

I only got 7. I sort of got 8 but it wouldn't let me enter the Offspring song. I couldn't figure out the right combination.

44/60 on first attempt (using my notebook built in shitty tinny speaker)

So far, only 6 out of 60. However, I managed to find other indie songs that have the exact same intro as the samples... And, what is up with having only one note for some of these?


Some of these sound so familiar, they must be songs I have heard over and over, just can't quite think of it. Oh well...
