About This Quiz

Put up your horns and prepare to rock! This quiz is gonna be epic in the way that Led Zeppelin stormed a stage. Let's take a journey through your very favorite classic rock anthems; the songs you turn up to 11 will help us decide how old you are! 

It's true that music is timeless and crosses all age barriers, but we're banking on the fact that we're smart enough to see through your head banging choices and straight to the number of candles on your last birthday cake. 

There's no doubt that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Sweet Leaf" are amazing songs, but which one do you think is more classic? Which one would you choose to play for a friend when you try to turn them on to the forefathers (or mothers) of the rock 'n roll world? Walk this way through our questions, and we will, we will rock you to sleep (if that's what your age requires.)

You might find it easy to air guitar along to this quiz, but remember that you need your fingers for choosing your responses. Just pretend you're the organist for The Doors, and we'll break on through to the other side with your correct age!
