Music Decades Quiz: Week 3, 2000s

Welcome to week 3 of the music decades challenge. Of the contestants who’ve completed both week’s challenges so far, the leaders are:

jprobichaud 75%
Rich K97%
Jim S99%

If you’d like to join in, it’s not too late. You can find previous weeks’ challenges at

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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. “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.

  7. 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?
