Guess the Songs

Here’s a little “quiz” I set up, just for fun. It has 26 songs from 26 wrock bands, and each song begins with a particular letter of the alphabet. It’s your job to identify the song (and the band, for a bonus point!). Some are well-known and others are more obscure — I just hope I’ve selected a good mix.

If a song begins with ‘a’, ‘an’ or ‘the’, I’ll use the first important word of the title. For example, a song called ‘The Boy Who Lived’ would be sorted under ‘B’. Highlight the space next to ‘answer’ to read the answer.
