About This Quiz

Whether you were drawn to the glam rock bands known for their big hair, the more intense head-banging by thrash metal groups or more popular stuff, the '80s produced rock songs that have stood the test of time. Regardless of your personal taste in music, we're going to match you up with an '80s classic that really gets to the heart of who you are and what your life has been about.

If your path has been centered around family and you derive the greatest satisfaction from the fact that your offspring are loving and wonderful people, there's a jam from Guns N' Roses that we think is right up your alley.

Maybe you've had to overcome plenty of challenges and a seemingly endless series of obstacles in your path. If you've only made it through the tough times due to your rock-solid faith and spiritual devotion, there's a Bon Jovi song that should get right to the heart of things.

If you're a fighter, someone who rises to any challenge and relishes any opportunity to test your resolve, you might just be a massive fan of the Rocky movies. We're guessing you have a pretty good idea what song that would entail.

There's plenty of great rock anthems from the decade that brought us Trivial Pursuit and Strawberry Shortcake. Let's find out which one might as well have been written just for you.
