So, you think you know your 1960’s rock and roll groups.

What if I limit it to groups that have either “and” or “and the” in their name? Still an expert?

Prove it!

Take this quiz I created. Just fill in the blanks to complete the names of the groups.

When you click on the answer link, you will be taken to a website that tells you the group’s name. All of the websites that I have linked to will give you basic information about the group. However, some will also tell you more including such things as the group’s hits and, even, whether they are still performing. A few of the sites even have the group’s music playing.
