For this week, we’re focusing on the 2000s. The quiz is the same format as the 1960s one, and should be a nice challenge after the relatively easy one last week:

I scored 34/50, the same as the Sporcle average. I spent most of my 2000s stuck in indie, so it’s probably not too surprising.

  1. Well, in a word, horrible. 20/50. I never heard of most of that stuff or those artists. I kept guessing and guessing but it never got any better. Boo-hoo! 🙁

  2. I got 96% or 48/50. I’m surprised I remembered a lot of these. Then again, I’m a millennial so this was my childhood. I don’t think I’d do well on the 2010s quiz because I’m in my little classic rock bubble. I haven’t listened to the radio in a very long time.

  3. I did about as “well” as expected, joining Jim in the 20/50 club. I actually knew 19 of them and then I took a whole bunch of (obviously wrong) guesses. If there was music to accompany the song titles I think I would have gotten at least another 10-15 of them, since I know what many of the artists sound like. Oh well. We’ll let the kids have this one.

  4. 26/50. Lots of songs I didn’t know but as I’ve said before I’d probably recognize many if I heard them

    • Good effort. I tried an aural quiz once, but didn’t get a great response – it’s a bit trickier as you need to be in a place where you can listen to music and concentrate.

  5. 36/50. I was on a roll with the lucky guesses but then it all fell apart with over confidence. Perhaps my head was stuck in indie too this decade?

  6. 19/50 that has to be a record lol…I guessed really wrong.

  7. I’m ashamed to list it but here it goes. The 90s is about where my knowledge ends… I grew up in the 80s but I know the 60’s and 70s best. These are fun regardless because I always learn something.
    SCORE
    10/25

  8. That would be a tough one for the likes of me

  9. Genuinely shocked; I managed 49/50. I had the misfortune of having to listen to a lot of commercial radio at work during a lot of these years and managed some very lucky guesses

  10. “should be a nice challenge after the relatively easy one last week”… haha.

    Anyhoo, I scored 35 this week. That’s decent, I reckon. Loads I had never heard of right away and I was a bit discouraged when my guesses weren’t hitting the mark.

  11. 43/50. The hip hop artist killed me on this one. Not my favorite genre.

  12. Cue the howling dogs – 18-50 – I obviously was also not listening to pop radios in the aughts. And its not like I made stupid mistakes – the ones I missed I had no idea. Oh well – perhaps 80s next week?
