These music trivia questions are guaranteed to test your knowledge of rock, pop, indie and more. From debut albums and Bond themes, to real names and a fun picture round, it’s time to find out if you’re a music maestro!

When it comes to quizzing, the music round is one of the best rounds. It’s always fun to reminisce as you listen to some hit songs from the past. Personally, it’s a round I look forward to, mainly because of my knowledge of 90s and 00s music acts… primarily boybands! Ok, so I might not ace University Challenge with this kind of knowledge, but it comes in handy in a pub quiz.

During lockdown we’ve all developed a passion for quizzing. Our knowledge has expanded and we’re enjoying soaking up random facts about everything from celebrities to cheeses.

Music quizzes are always good fun, so I decided it was only right to challenge you guys with some music trivia questions. Coming up are 50 music trivia questions, including a really fun printable picture round featuring famous bands and music acts.
