About This Quiz

The 1970s was a great yet devastating decade. There was the Vietnam War, President Nixon resigned, the Super Outbreak happened and The Beatles broke up. But Stephen Hawking developed his theories about black holes, floppy disks were invented, the feminist movement got its second wind and many social taboos were disregarded.  There was also the rise of rock music and legendary artists who remain relevant and beloved to this day. Some of the greatest bands of all time were popular during the '70s and it has inspired us to create this quiz about the major bands of that decade. 

They're a mix of rockers and artists, but they were the best of the decade. Do you think you remember enough about music in the '70s to name all these bands from a single picture? Some of them will look very familiar, while some of them won't- but don't worry if you get stuck; we do have hints you can use if you get stumped.

So, let's stop talking about it and get to it! Are you ready to rock out with our music quiz? Let's find out!
