14. "Minority" - Green Day
Kind of a guess:
6. "My Cherie Amour" - I'm not sure who originally recorded it, and it seems like a lot of songs would have something along the lines of "you're the only one my heart beats for," but I'll take a chance and guess.

7. It's from Monty Python and the Holy Grail; Knights of the Round Table.

You both are correct!

#2- Nirvana- Heart Shaped Box

#1 is from Janie Jones by the Clash.

YAY! you bet it is.

number 17. five iron frenzy, when i go out


#20=holiday in cambodia, by dead kennedy's

and 19 is REM's "losing my religion"


#16 is from "Lemon Tree" by Trini Lopez.

And #21 is from "The Boxer" by Simon and Garfunkel.

23. Bob Dylan - "Just Like A Woman"

You are correct!

24-Hey Ya! by Outkast....and shake it like a polaroid picture mary!!

*shakes it like a polaroid picture*

8 is my sharona by the knack
31 is happy birthday ralph by atom and his package
32 is once in a lifetime by the talking heads

YAY someone finally got the my sharona line,ROCK ON ATOM!!!!

36. "American Pie" - Don McLean

4. ring of fire - johnny cash
5. I walk the line - johnny cash
9. little girl - oingo boingo
15. good charlotte, but can't think of title
26. stuck in mobile with the memphis blues again - bob dylan
35. she-bop - cyndi lauper

22. Rust Never Sleeps - Neil Young
26. Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - Bob Dylan

You got the Dylan line but try again on the neil young one.Wrong song.

My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue) &
Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)

I'm at work, so naturally I'm half asleep!

thats funny, I thought I guessed the dylan song first.

Whoops, the moderation system makes these "quiz lists" a little more awkward. Looking at the timestamp you did guess it first, but since your post was in moderation limbo Mary didn't see it until after she saw tdunnie's post.

Hadn't thought of that. Sorry Mary. I hope you don't see these posts until this one gets the go-ahead.

Jim, is it worth mentioning this delay to newcomers in the red type area? Just a thought.

Jim - I just found another negative to the moderator system. After I posted the last reply, I was going to go back and delete the question to you (having re-read the red text.) I discovered you can't do that now because it's suspended in website limbo land. Oh well.

I guess I'll just lay off posting for awhile.

Dang, sorry 'bout that! This is fixed now. Posts in moderator limbo will show up for the person that posted them, but not anybody else. Once they're approved, then they're visible to everybody.

The system is definitely going to need some tweaking. I'm slowly working my way up to a major site upgrade, so I'm going to revisit lots of these issues then (the moderation system was a bit of a rush job). It'll probably take me most of the winter though, so please bear with the quirks as I work 'em out (and keep telling me about 'em!). Thanks!

Sorry about that I saw tdunnie's first.

Of course, now the question is, are you going to update the score? You could always credit both tdunnie and DrJimmy, since neither saw the other's answer. Listology has never dealt with this issue in quizzes before, so you can set the precedent. :-)

OK I will put them both on.

30. I guess this might be a slight misquote from "Stephanie Says" from the Velvet Underground.

27. The Simpsons - "See my Vest" sung by Mr. Burns

25. Iggy Pop - "Lust for Life"

Number 46 is "Punk Rock Academy" by Atom and His Package. Yay Atom!


42 is Piano Man, Billy Joel
51 is Bang a Gong, T-Rex.

Oh, and can I ask what's the deal with your breasts growing like it's Sunday morning? I must know...

HA! the breast thing,was an inside joke my friend typed with out my knowledge.

Okay, #12 has been puzzling me since the list was first posted, but the closest I can come is "Oh, this precious salvation, vindication awaits" (Bastards on Parade by the Dropkick Murphys). Am I close? You're killing me, lady. :D

You are correct! When I saw them in concert They made all the drunks in crowd sing "On The road to salvation Vindication awaits" It was beautiful :)

Oh thank goodness. I thought I was losing it. Sounds like an awesome concert, too.


37. Kelis - Milkshake


And 43, "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers? Best song ever, to have stuck in your head while trying to complete a final exam in 17th century British novel development. Where did this diploma come from?

17th century british novel development? Interesting!.Yup,it's Pepper.

#15. By Rob Zombie, but I can't remember the song title.
#48. Hall of Mirrors by the Distillers.
#49. Sounds like a line in Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl, but I'll choose "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John.
#54. Mona Lisa and Madhatters by Elton John (or Mandy Moore if you insist)

My head hurts.

Ugh,Mandy Moore-Excellent job. I'll give you the Rob Zombie one.

#45. Placebo - Pure Morning
#55. The Misfits - Die, die my darling


#40 Generator- Bad Religion.
Im surprised nobodys guessed that yet, and relieved as well the last one I guessed was a song by eminem. boo.

Rock on #40 is Generator but that last one is not Eminem.

56. "The Reasons" The Weakerthans

Thanks for telling me to check out that band, Mary. Now I know an answer!


#29 - "Please, please, please let me get what I want" by The Smiths...and thought I saw another quote on here before from their song "Unlovable." Maybe it was on another Lyric Game list.


number 11 is rancid"red Hot Moon".I Got It And I'm Only 10.yeah!

Wow,very good.

#47 "Your emotions" by dead kennedys - a strange song I have almost forgoten, but not yet...

#58 "St.Mary" by Rancid ...well, I LOVE PUNK MUSIC, that's why I came across with the album "Let's go" a long long time ago (they havn't quite catched my permanent interest) ...

You are correct.

18 & 38: Ze Clash

yes it is the clash

#28: Chic'n'Stu, System of a Down
#53: Strongbad!


#13 is Minor Threat - Look Back and Laugh

#41 Rancid - Radio

Viva La Punk

Right on!

#50 Jack and Diane, John Cougar

Nope, that's not the song I'm thinking of.

64 could be "Sheila Take a Bow" by The Smiths

Yes it is.


Yoo hoo, indeed.

#68: Nirvana - In Bloom

Yup, finally someone got it.

#70- Anyone Else But You by The Moldy Peaches... I think... because that line that song is "We sure are cute for two ugly people", but I don't know of any line in any other song that it could be.
