of That ’70s Show at least five times and they have
lots of opinions on music, so I think it’s seeped
into my subconscious. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ The bell was ringing ♪ – I was just listening

Earth, Wind, and Fire. – That’s “September”
by Earth, Wind, and Fire. – (FBE) It’s called “September,”
and it’s Earth, Wind, and Fire. – As you said “earth,”
I was like, “Oh, wind and fire. Got it.”

because I knew I wasn’t gonna know this one at all. – (FBE) This is
called “Heart of Glass,” and this is by Blondie.

“Heart of Glass” before. – Oh, this Blondie [bleep], man!
I should have known it. Blondie makes the hits. – I don’t feel like people

“Lean on Me” by Bill Withers. – I’ve literally never heard of

Warren Beatty, Cat Stevens, and even Mick Jagger.

that you could write a song about. Such an interesting life. – Ooh-hoo! I mean…

making our way back to ’70s music. – I’m feeling really empty,
like hollow, because these songs are amazing
and I just don’t know any of them. – If I had to sit down
and fill out a Scantron of “Do They Know ’70s Music,”
I would never win, but if we were at a karaoke night

  2. Last song is totally Black Sabbath……. 😔😔😔. The girl said it best " we need to get back to 70's music". Gretta Van Fleet is the only close to it these days

  3. Carly Simon revealed a couple of years ago that verse 2 of 'You're So Vain' is about Warren Beatty…but she's not saying who the others are.

  4. Man these songs were all my jams. I'm really surprised nobody said "Hey that's Thor's song". when it came to Led Zeppelin

  5. I recognized the lyric rhythm in Rod Stewart's song from the one vine: "Iiiif your name is Junior/Aaaand you're really handsome/Cooome on raise your ha-and"

  6. You gotta put some of rick James in these but not his most common songs like give it me baby, super freak or Mary Jane use different ones he has a lot

  7. Do Teens/College Kids Know 70’s music: THE BRADY BUNCH SONGS like Sunshine Days. Or John Denver, man the feels those songs give me!

  8. “Piano man by Elton john” I was like wtf that’s by Billie Joel and if it’s not everything I believe is wrong

  9. Everytime they think its Sabbath, say Zepplin.

    Everytime you think its Elton John, say Billy Joel.

  10. You want to make your way back to 70's music?

    Daft Punk's R.A.M is an great album about 70's music!

  11. Ive always wished I could be on these lol these are my favorite songssss ahhhhhh I need to be on react 😩


  13. You should all be embarrassed. Except that curly haired chick in the flower top. She gets a pass, she knew enough.

  14. For 70's put Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Diana Ross, The Spinners, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, and Barry White.

  15. *sees robert plant* *rapidly clicks screen* ZEPPELIN😩😩😍😍😍

    Edit: im upset that they DID NOT know zeppelin

  16. Include songs like "Call me Al" in 70s songs, and maybe drive me crazy by fine young cannibals for the 80s!
    Thank you!

  17. How in the world do you confuse Led Zeppelin with Black Sabbath? Ok I grew up in the 70s so I will excuse these guys for not knowing.

  18. I just love the misconception of “Blondie” being the name of the singer. “Blondie” is the name of the band. The singer is Debbie Harry.

  19. Immigrant Song Ledd Zeppelin. Love it. Love rock music. Rocky Mountain Way and Rebel Yell are probably in my top 5 tho

  20. Hey Nineteen, that's Aretha Franklin, she don't remember the queen of Soul. It's hard times befallen the Soul Survivors; she thinks I'm crazy but I'm just growing old..

  21. You need to feature Labelle “Lady Marmalade”, Chaka Khan “I’m Every Woman”, Commodores “Brickhouse”, any Marvin Gaye from the 1970s
