About This Quiz

Whether you are a baby boomer or Generation Y, you probably dig rock music.When you tell people what type of music you like, you know that rock music is somewhere on the list, but these days that doesn't narrow it down all that much. 

When you think about it, 'rock" can be anything from "Blackbird" from the Beatles to "Takin Care of Business" by Bachman Turner Overdrive to "Freak on a Leash" by Korn. But when you think about rock music, it isn't just about what kind of music that you like, it is about the lifestyle as well.

If you are the kind of person who is comfortable in the mosh pit at a Melvins show, or would you rather be sitting next to the campfire playing your acoustic while all your friends sing "Quinn the Eskimo"?We guess what we really want to know is, how good at air guitar are you really?

Whatever the case is, you know that you are all about rock and roll, and you don't have to be wearing leather pants and throwing devil horns to prove it, but hey, it can't hurt. Take this quiz and find out what type of rock music you are.
