    2/10. Failed, I have. Into exile I must go.

    Dude, don't even worry about it. It's not like half of these are even well known songs. I'm never going to feel bad not knowing a Rammstein or Cannibal Corpse lyric.

    7/10 Not bad. I only just recently learned about the meaning of Wiener Blut. Wilkommen... zu der DUNKELHEEEEIIIIIT!

    The Karma Police one is a bit wrong - The song partly about fate, but the songs lyrics are inspired from a in-joke the band had, that whenever one of the members was being a prick or full of himself, they'd joke "the karma police is going to get you", meaning that the answer "arrogance" is just as valid as fate.

    4/10. not getting karma police when its obvious is stupid, if i had got that one right it would have 5/10.

    6/10... However at least three of those were complete/educated guesses...

    6, the karma police question (i got wrong) was a bastard though, coulda been any of them.

    Although it's not a super all-time most well known song, Like Suicide by Soundgarden is one of my favorite stories. Anyone know it?

    3/10...I haven't heard any Megadeth or Iron Maiden songs EVER, but got those right. It's pretty obvious with Minutes to Midnight and that Tornado of Souls isn't about the other 3.  I am deeply ashamed not knowing what Karma Police is specifically about, I thought it was about flling in love with the wrong person or something like that. It's amongst the songs I play n guitar the most XD...I suck...

    5/10 - But in my defense I missed the dumb ones. Oasis? Really?
    Kelldrim
    4/10 Death Metal fan. As I'm sat here listening to Venom scream at me.

    this tells me i am a noise metal fan. In my defence, i actually haven't heard a lot of these songs

    "4/10, Death Metal Fan; Lyrics don't matter that much, huh?" Really? So what you're saying is all of Chuck's lyrics on the last three Death albums were pure nonsense? Nice one, UG.
