About This Quiz

While both bands hailed from the United Kingdom and were part of the so-called "British Invasion" of the United States in the 1960s, their trajectories couldn't be more different. 

Almost unbelievably, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the rest of The Rolling Stones are still touring over 50 years after they formed, in 1962. In fact, in 2019, they began yet another tour, "No Filter," and they were still selling-out stadiums worldwide. Their longevity speaks to how much their music has been appreciated for decades (and generations) of listeners.

In contrast, the Beatles released their last album in 1970, and only toured through the 1960s. In fact, they only released 12 studio albums, but are still one of the most loved bands of all time.

Both bands deeply influenced how people worldwide experienced popular music. Whether it was the way that The Rolling Stones made an indelible mark on the genre of rock'n'roll, or the way the Beatles experimented with sound and expectations with albums like, "The White Album," it's impossible to overstate their influence on pop culture and music.

If you consider yourself a devoted fan of either of these bands, take this quiz to find out how well you can identify each band with only song lyrics to guide your choice!
