Do you remember the year of In My Place, Hero, Sk8er Boi and The Girl All The Bad Boys Want?

2002 is now - unbelievably - two whole decades ago, but what a time to be alive. Nu-metal, the post-punk revival and some cracking pop tunes all made for a tremendous year of music.

And some of the biggest bands in the world had some key albums out in '02: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Foo Fighters and more all released some corkers.

So if we were to give you a line from a song from 2002, would you be able to identify it correctly? Would you, say, be able to get 100% correct? Take the test and find out.
