I almost got it. I tried F-16, F-18, F-21 and then gave up trying. Couldn't remember the English patient either, so 18/20.

I totally forgot Radiohead did anything in 1997. I would have expected something about Chumbawamba or Third Eye Blind to be the music question, since they were totally inescapable that year.

I got all of these very quickly. And now I miss the 90's. I'm going to go listen to Stone Temple Pilots and drink a Snapple in my garage.
