2000s Music Quiz

Last updated:

A music quiz from the noughties! This 2000s music trivia quiz covers the years 2000 to 2009. The turn of the century brought us lots of fun music memories. The early 2000s were the decade that brought streaming and digital downloads to the mainstream, when smartphones became the thing, and a millennium bug that never happened. 

Let’s see how much you remember with this 100 question music quiz. Grab your friends, family, or co-workers and see who knows the noughties music best.

2000s Music Trivia
2000s Music Trivia

In this music quiz we have the general trivia section which is 5o questions and answers. Then we have a collection of 5 rounds of 10 questions each.

The ‘also known as (aka)’ round tests you on the stage names of famous artists. The ‘film and television’ round is a quiz about songs featured and artists featured on movies and TV in the 2000s. 

‘In which year’ is a round testing your music knowledge on either which year a single or album was released, or a particular well-known event.

The final two rounds are all about testing your 2000s music lyrical knowledge. ‘Name the song’ asks you to name the song (and artist if you like a challenge) based on a line or two from a song. And ‘Finish the lyrics’ gives you a famous lyric which you need to finish.

Hopefully, that is plenty of music trivia to keep you entertained. Good luck!
