Its my turn to do our monthly quiz on a forum i use. 50 questions comprising of 25 general knowledge and 25 music. Ive got the GK ones done but need another 8-10 in the music section :lol: most of the questions ive got are related to 'older' rock bands (no NOT status quo Gemmill)!

Any of you think of any good questions related to more up to date music that i can use? Would be greatly appreciated :o
