Intro to Sauw's Music Trivia Challenge

Starting the morning of Wednesday, December 17th 2008, will be hosting the official return of Sauw’s Music Trivia Challenge. Some of you may remember the first Music Trivia Challenge that I put together a few years back, which consisted only of song lyric identification. This time around the challenge has been taken to a whole new echelon, now with actual trivia questions that span the last 50+ years of rock goodness, from the first earth-shifting swing of Elvis’ hips to the newest, most important music coming out today (and don’t worry, for all those lyric-lovers out there I’ll still post the occasional lyric identification question as well).

So every Monday through Friday I’ll be posting a new question between 10 and 11am (Eastern Standard Time), at which point you’ll see the question posted at the top of the right column of my blog. If you think you know the answer, e-mail it to Also, in your first e-mail please include how you want your name to appear on the leaderboard. CORRECT E-MAILED RESPONSES WILL BE ACCEPTED AND CREDITED AROUND THE CLOCK UNTIL THE NEXT DAY'S QUESTION IS POSTED.

Here’s how the point system works… The first person to respond correctly will get 2 points, everyone else gets 1 point (and obviously no points for an incorrect or no answer). That’s it! And please for the sake of the competition...DO NOT CHEAT! Seriously, it’s not cool. This is supposed to be a fun, trivia game, not the SATs.

So one more time in case you didn't get it:
- questions posted Monday-Friday between 10-11am
- 2 points for being the first to respond correctly, 1 point for everyone else who gets it right
- e-mail your response to anytime after the question is posted up until the next day's question is put up

So now I'lll ask you just one, simple question by quoting the late, great James Marshall Hendrix; “Are you experienced?”
