Legendary Musicians of the 1990s Quiz
With the period of bold revolution that was the 80s, artists were free to experiment with a number of sounds and techniques relatively new to the realm of western music. The 90s saw those experiments bear unexpected fruit.
There were a number of considerable schisms in the musical scene of the 90s. Previous nigh-unstoppable genres began to go the way of the dodo as new styles rose to prominence. This ended up creating spaces for truly unique characters to rise to the forefront of the music scene.
These were acts that probably wouldn’t have found success in any age but the 90s. As such, they ended up giving the decade a sound all its own. Aggression, defiance, and melancholy were three of the emotions that inspired 90s musicians the most.
However, there were still many bands and artists that chose to forego these rather dramatic tones in favor of more traditional musical tropes. We remember a number of 90s artists because of their sheer unbridled individuality which was informed by, and in turn defined, the age in which they lived.
In this quiz, we will be looking across the whole of this decade to test your knowledge on some of the 90s’ most iconic or successful musical acts. So long as the bands or artists in question left a cultural impact on music during the 90s, they are viable to be on this quiz.
As much as to test, this quiz is meant to inform. So, we hope you come out of it knowing something new. How much do you know about this era?
