Although I am far from college-aged, I do pride myself on being a gentleman of broad culture. So I was a little dismayed at how few of the bands and songs I recognized. Could it be that I (I!?) am out of touch?
But then I thought, “The internet is surely full of people even less ‘with’ ‘it’ than I am. Why not force them to join me in bemoaning our ignorance?”
And so: a quiz!
I quickly jotted down seven fake bands with fake song titles, and mixed them up with the Radio K playlist. Can you pick out which are real songs that hip collegiates can’t get enough of and which are totally made up? You can find the answers here.
