How about a quiz?

This is where we discuss anything that is not specifically about toys. Discussion can be toy-related though. Basically anything BUT politics and religion is discussed here.

Once again, I've fallen into the time suck of Mental Floss quizzes. Here's one for you guys:

Name the song by the opening line:

I got 'em all right with 4:47 left on the clock, despite my well-known bouts of chronic lyricosis.

I gave up with four unsolved with 2:11 left. One of those four I don't think I've ever heard before. Two I didn't recognize from the first line. One I knew, but I just couldn't think of the title (one of those that the most prominent lyrics are not the title).

13/19

I didn't get
Led Zepplin
Bob Dylan
Beck
Rolling Stones
Nine Inch Nails
Pink Floyd

and I admit, I'm not a fan of any of those bands.

The NIN song.

Maybe I have heard it, but I don't know that I have. I can't think of any song of theirs that I have actually heard, but I'm bad with bands and song titles generally, so I don't know.

Honestly, the reason I know the NIN one is because Devo did a cover of it for the Supercop soundtrack.

As for b0b, man, I just can't help you.

Here's another lyric quiz. I gave up one unsolved and 2:57 left. I just don't know my Abba.

Or if you hate lyrics, try this one where you have to match up three things in different categories. I thought this one was pretty easy (finished with 1:42 left):
