How many did you get right? Click the button below to find out then check out what your score means.
9–10 corrrect: You've got Metal Up Your Ass!!!!! You have at least 10 black T-shirts, still can't get over the shock of seeing Metallica with short hair, whip out the air guitar when "Panama" comes on the radio and would trade your firstborn for a "real" Guns N' Roses reunion. Congrats—you're just like me, you rock star, you! Wanna watch "Supergroup" with me on Sunday?

8–7: You're a Youth Gone Wild and Nobody's Fool, but lack the no-life rabidity of the metal connoisseur. Still, you've probably attended at least one hair metal reunion show in the last five years and have transferred all your 80s metal CDs onto your iPod. You may not rock to live, but you definitely live to rock.

6–5: I Remember You—you were a big metal fan in high school, but moved on to something else later in life. You probably know the words to a few of 80s metal songs, most likely the power ballads like "Every Rose" or the mega hits like "One", and you've probably caught VH1's "Most Metal Moments" countdown. But you're just more into the Strokes these days.

3–4: Welcome To The Jungle—this quiz was a toughie, wasn't it? I'm sure you know there is a difference between Metallica and Megadeth, but probably don't know Dave Mustaine from James Hetfield and why they hate each other. If you'd like to learn more, though, you've come to the right place. Stupid & Contagious can guide you if you'll just let it...

1–2: This has been your Theater of Pain. When you think of "metal", you probably think of Good Charlotte, Sum 41 or, god forbid, Avril Lavigne (and you probably loved her cover of "Fuel" at the Metallica Icon concert). My guess is that you might be a hipster, which would explain a lot.

0: God, you suck.

Dude...I missed 3, 8, and 10! I suck ass!
Where DID you get the nickname?

Hey, that's an excellent score, Lola! "Rocket Queen" is the name of a Guns N' Roses song...it's the last song on "Appetite." Sadly, I had to change the spelling because it appears someone already got the coveted rocketqueen.blogspot.com name. :-(
