Have You Ever… Been A Music N3rd?!

On last week’s Have You Ever… Been A Big Huge Freak’n Nerd?! quiz, Josh commented, “if this was based on being a music n3rd, I would totez have answered yes to all!”  So we at C&R invited Josh and Enrico to write such a quiz. The rules are simple. For each question that you answer ‘yes’ to, give yourself a single point. When you reach the end of the quiz, add up your points and post your total in the comments section.

  1. Oh if this were “Were You Ever….A Comic Book Nerd?” I’d totally rule.

    (just seeing if this not-so-subtle request thingee actually works!) 🙂


  2. 20. The only times I ever woke up early for anything related to what was happening on the radio were those occasions when I was being interviewed on the radio. Radio? Really? Isn’t that a dead medium for dinosaurs (hitting on me what?) and people who can’t afford MP3 hookups in their cars?

    And a Grammy Party? The phrase alone puts me to sleep. 😉

  3. I really don’t get why everyone hates on the Grammys so much. I look forward to it all year! Oh well…guess that’s evidence as to why I (feat. Enrico) scored a 25/25 on this quiz. All the people I know that are OBSESSED with music look forward to it!
