Now over to Adam´s Quiz

I'm bored and I can't sleep. What's an over the hill wanna be rock and roll star to do? I thought "Why not come up with a punk rock trivia quiz?" so.... that's what I'm doing. As the mood strikes me, there will probably be more than one, but this is the first one. This one is going to focus on the first era of punk rock between 1976-1980. Have fun!      

 1. What does "CBGBS and UMFUG" stand for?

 2. What song was pulled off The Ramones, "Leave Home"      album?

 4. The song, "Chinese Rock" was a hit for Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers, but it was NOT one of their songs. Name the original band who wrote it.

 7. Which punk rock musician wrote the liner notes for the two record 60s garage compilation, "Nuggets" originally released on Elektra Records in 1972, and re-issued on Sire in 1978, and was, quite possibly, the VERY FIRST PLACE the term, "Punk Rock" was used? BONUS QUESTION: What magazine was he the editor of for a brief period of time?

 9. In 1978, Johnny Blitz, of The Dead Boys was attacked on the streets of New York City and stabbed multiple times. There was a two day benefit concert held at CBGBS to help pay for his medical expenses. What amous actor/comedian played drums for The Dead Boys during one of those nights? BONUS QUESTION: Before their untimely death, what west coast punk rock band did they get to appear on the television show where said actor/comedian got their start? EXTRA BONUS QUESTION: What famous Washington D.C. celebrity was in the audience that night when the west coast band played?

 10. What short lived sitcom did The Dickies make a cameo appearance on in 1978?

Remember, this is all in fun, and perhaps a learning experience for one or two of you out there. Hopefully some of you will learn something new and get an edu-mah-cation out of taking this quiz. It won't pay the bills, put a roof over your head or put food on the table, so don't be discouraged if you don't know the answers. This is just done out of boredom. Have fun everybody!
