    I refuse to believe that Hotel California is not the most guessed song for Eagles, or Don't Speak for No Doubt.

    @FloraDora: They do - it's in the lyric right before, so at that point they say the full name in order: Early morning, April four Shot rings out in the Memphis sky Free at last, they took your life They could not take your pride..... In the name of love

    Being married to an elementary school music teacher and a father of 3-year-old twins probably gave me a slightly unfair advantage on this quiz!

    I think there should be a bonus for Lightning Crashes by Live -- the only song I know of to include the word "placenta".

    Many thanks to Sporcle for the promulgation of this quiz.

    @Bama - the premise is just that the words don't appear in very many songs, not that they would be considered atypical for those specific songs.

    Never heard of a lot of these, and some have different words here in the UK.
