About This Quiz

They were an English phenomenon that was formed back in 1960. With four members, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, the band became one of the most influential rock bands of all time - and for good reason. The Beatles took what was known as 1950s rock and experimented with it. They made their own sounds and soon had songs in a variety of genres which include but are not limited to pop ballads, psychedelia and hard rock. 

The band broke up in 1970, a short ten years after they first started, and each member went their own way. Two of the members lost their lives: John Lennon was shot in 1980 and George Harrison had lung cancer and passed in 2001, but their memories live on. The Beatles are still, to this day, one of the best-selling bands in the history of music. With accolades and awards that are too long to list, it's no wonder that this group has its own quiz. 

So, we want to test just how well you know Beatles lyrics. We're going to give you a line or two from some of their songs, and it's your job to tell us what the name of each song is. Are you ready to get started? Let's go!
