Intros Quiz – Post-Punk Edition

August 3rd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

nme_80s_originalsPunk opened the door to whole new brands of popular music. While that genre was short-lived and ill-defined to include all manner of music that wasn’t in any way punk, it helped open doors to (sometimes brief) stardom for a new wave of artists who were dabbling in synth sounds, ska, pub rock and, indeed, punk-influenced pop. This month’s intros quiz celebrates the post-punk wave, incorporating the years 1978-83.

As always, each of the 20 intros is 5-7 seconds in length (if you time them, one recognisable intro is just four seconds long). I will post the answers in the comments section by Thursday, so please don”t post your answers. If you can”t wait till then to find out what the blasted number 8 is, please feel free to e-mail me or, better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here and become one.

    Way fun. One of the 20 songs was John Peel’s fav song.

    Oh, Mensch! I did better on this quiz than any of the previous ones, despite (A) being born in 1984 and (B) not particularly loving much of this list. Hmm.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
