A LOT of these songs have been covered many, many times. In the interest of brevity, I've only mentioned the original or most famous recording. I felt justified in giving two Bob Seger songs since I figured an entire generation was re-exposed to "Turn the Page" recently by Metallica. There were also 2 Rolling Stones songs, one was a hit, the other was an "album song". There were five of what I considered to be "album songs": #2, #7 #12, #15, and #18, which would probably not be known with only a cursory knowledge of the artist. Every decade was represented back to the 1950's and the genres included rap, country & western, classic rock, alternative, punk, psyche, folk, and rockabilly. In other words, I tried to include something for everyone. Hope you had fun.


1. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band - "Fire Down Below" (Correct Answers: 4)
It happens out in Vegas, it happens in Moline.
On the blue-blood streets of Boston, up in Berkley and out in Queens.
And it went on yesterday, it's goin' on tonight
Somewhere the's somebody ain't treatin' somebody right



2. The Dead Milkmen - "Stuart" (Correct Answers: 5)
POW! He was decapitated!
They found his head over by the snow cone concession
A few days after that, I open up the mail
And there's a pamphlet in there from Pueblo, Colorado
And it's addressed to Bill, Jr. and it's entitled, Do You You Know What The Queers Are Doing To The Soil?"


3. Ram Jam - "Black Betty" (Correct Answers: 14)
Bam alam, she's from Birmingham
Bam alam, way down in Alabam
Bam alam, well she's shaking that thing
Bam alam, boy she makes me sing


4. The White Stripes - "Seven Nation Army" (Correct Answers: 7)
I'm goin' to Wichita, far from this opera for ever more
I'm gonna work the straw, make the sweat drip out of every pore


5. The Ramones - "The KKK Took My Baby Away" (Correct Answers: 6
She went away for a holiday
Said she's going to L.A.
But she never got there, she never got there, she never got there they say.


6. The Rolling Stones - "Honky Tonk Women" (Correct Answers: 5)
I played a divorcee in New York City
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The lady then she covered me in roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind


7. The Rolling Stones - "Rip This Joint" (Correct Answers: 3)
Dig that sound on the radio
Then slip it right across into Buffalo
Dick and Pat in ol' D.C.
Well they're gonna hold some shit for me.


8. Johnny Cash - "Folsom Prison Blues" (Correct Answers: 18)
When I was just a baby, my momma told me, "Son
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns."
But, I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.


9. Robert Earl Keen - "The Road Goes On Forever" (Correct Answers: 4)
The stars were high above them and the moon was in the east
The sun was settin' on them when they reached Miami Beach
They got a motel off the water and a quart of Bombay gin
The road goes on forever and the party never ends


10. Aerosmith - "Last Child" (Correct Answers: 5)
Take me back to south Tallahassee
Down 'cross the bridge to my sweet sassafrassy
Can't stand up on my feet in the city
Got to get back to the real nitty gritty


11. Bobbie Gentry - "Ode To Billy Joe" (Correct Answers: 3)
A year has come and' gone since we heard the news about Billy Joe
And Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring
And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge

And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge


12. Violent Femmes - "To The Kill" (Correct Answers: 4)
I aint no Kid Chicago, I aint no Al Capone
But theres a windy city, In my bedroom alone
I said I dont live in Chicago, I don't know no Al Capone
That bitch took my money and went to Chicago
If I ain't enough already sick and alone


13. Creedance Clearwater Revival - "Travellin' Band" (Correct Answers: 6)
737 comin' out of the sky
Won't you take me down to Memphis on a midnight ride?
I wanna move, playin' in a travellin' band
Well I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand
Playin' in a travellin' band


14. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band - "Turn the Page" (Correct Answers: 10)
On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
You can listen to the engines moaning out its one long song
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before


15. Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - "Nebraska" (Correct Answers: 3)
I saw her standing on her front porch just a'twirlin' her baton
Me and her went for a ride, sir and ten innocent people died
From the town of Lincoln, Nebraska with a sawed-off .410 on my lap
Through the badlands of Wyoming we killed everything in our path


16. Snoop Doggy Dog - "Gin and Juice" (Correct Answers: 6)
But it aint no stoppin, Im still poppin'

To serve me, not with a cherry on top
Cause when I bust my nut, I'm raisin up off the cot


17. Journey - "Don't Stop Believin'" (Correct Answers: 13)
Just a small town girl
Living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere

Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

She is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
They're not home to find us out


20. Mountain - "Mississippi Queen" (Correct Answers: 5)
Way down around Vicksburg, around Louisiana way

Way down in Louisiana close to New Orleans

But he could play a guitar just like ringin' a bell


23. Janis Joplin - "Me and Bobby McGee" (Correct Answers: 16)
