Since REO Speedwagon is such an iconic 80's band, we're gonna test your knowledge of 80s pop culture. If you're a true fan of the 80s, you'll have no problem answering questions like this...

In 1982, John Mellencamp reached the Top 40 with this song that contains the lyrics “Suckin’ on a chili dog outside the tasty freeze.”


This 1982 movie, starring Sean Penn, contains the line “All’s I need is a cool buzz, some tasty waves and I’m fine."

Why such a big deal is being made over the Hi-Infidelity album? Allow me to remind you of its significance for the band. If I were to ask you to name REO's three biggest songs, you would most likely say "Keep on Loving You," "Take It On The Run," and "I Can't Fight This Feeling." Well, two of those three songs came from the Hi-Infidelity album. The album was a HUGE success for the band, spending 15 weeks at #1 on the charts and selling a mind-boggling 10 million copies in the United States alone. Yeah, the album did pretty well.
