This is the same as it's always been. 30 years ago it would have been Bros, Jive Bunny, Rick Astley and Bananarama racking up the views. 20 years ago it'd have been the Spice Girls, Boyzone, Peter Andre and Steps racking up the views. Iron Maiden are where they've always been and they are still going strong. To be honest, I don't want billions of kids who don't know musicianship and proper music watching their music videos. I'm happy to leave them to their easily digestable formulaic generic pop hits. Let a few of the lucky ones find Iron Maiden when their tastes mature and they go searching for authentic music.

"Most-Viewed Youtube Videos" & "Name the musical acts who recorded the most-viewed music videos of all-time on Youtube." The exclusion of non-music videos ruined the quiz for me. Even though after a little research I found this excludes only 1 video: "Charlie Bit My Finger – Again!"

I got all of them except Danza Kuduro and Propuesta Indecente. I knew that Ai Se Eu Te Pego was by Michael Telo. But you need to fix the o to be any type of o. Not the "accent" O. I'm glad I knew most of them except 2.

Dear everyone: we get it. This is not "music." You don't like these songs. This generation is terrible. You're the only kid at your school that likes Pink Floyd. High-five. I say this as someone who doesn't care for pretty much anything mainstream: get over yourself. This music is for tweens & young teens, which is why it dominates YouTube. There is plenty of good music today, but it's not what tweens listen to, because tweens have always liked and will always like cheesy, mass-marketed stuff. Every generation detests the culture of the one that follows it. Your parents probably think what you like is stupid, and their parents thought the Beatles were stupid. Katy Perry's music is terrible...but so what? You really resent 13-year-old girls dancing to it in their bedrooms? This is somehow a problem for you? Let them have a little fun. There will always be someone who can look down on what you enjoy. Maybe instead you just let people enjoy themselves.

I've never heard a single song on this list, but it's not my generation so I didn't expect to. I was happy to get 5 just by guessing names I've seen on other quizzes. And yeah, I think music from the '60s is the best, and yeah, my parents hated it almost as much as I hated disco which came next.

They're already filled in because if say you guessed Justin Bieber correctly for one of the first few answers, it automatically fills in all the other answers that are also Justin Bieber. Maybe it could be changed so the 'answer only corresponds to the highlighted box'

Please! No more comments saying "these are so called 'musicians'" and "what happened to good music?" In your opinion, what you call good music is good for you, whereas other people would find current music good. You only think your music is 'good' because it is the music from your youth, and it may bring back happy memories. I am 16 years old, and the music I like most is chart music from around 2006 to 2014, although I like some current music too, however I do find that some music recently I haven't enjoyed whatsoever. This is because it isn't similar to the music I listened to when I was younger, therefore it sounds strange and new, not familiar to me, thus I "don't like current music". Keep your opinions to yourself, and don't go spreading hate, there is already enough of that in the world to go around.
