– Aah-ha! Yes! – (singing along)
♪ Born in the U.S.A. ♪ ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Let’s see how well
you know some ’80s music. – Okay, okay, here we go. – Aww, [bleep]. Okay. I always feel like
I’m gonna let people down. – I love ’80s music. ’80s music gets me going.
It gets me hyped. – I definitely know some ’80s music,
but I’m not an expert. – I don’t know ’80s music!
But I damn well will try. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Go-go music
really makes us dance ♪ ♪ Do the pony puts us in a trance ♪
– It doesn’t sound familiar at all. – ♪ Do the Watusi… ♪
– I’m waiting for the chorus. Hold on. – ♪ What’s when we fall in love ♪ ♪ ‘Cause we got the beat ♪ – Oh, yeah!
– ♪ We got the beat ♪ ♪ We got the beat, yeah ♪ ♪ We got it ♪ ♪ (drum solo) ♪ – This reminds me
of the Jimmy Neutron movie. – (singing along) ♪ We got the beat ♪ Aww, dang it.
I love that song. That is one of
the best ’80s song ever. – (FBE) This song was suggested
from Trudi from Adults React, so no extra pressure.
– Oh, okay. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No, I don’t know it. – “We Got the Beat.”
Artist, no idea. – “We Got the Beat”? I don’t know who the hell sings this. – It’s “We Got the Beat.”
I know that but I’m not sure about the artist. – “We Got the Beat” by The Go-Gos. – “We Got the Beat” by The Go-Gos. – (FBE) So it’s “We
Got the Beat” by The Go-Gos. – Oh, The Go-Gos! – I’ve never heard of this song,
but it sounds really fun, especially the beat towards the end.
It makes you want to dance. – Gold fish, okay?
Nothing stays. Good song. I’m so sorry
to disappoint you, Trudi. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ New movie’s showin’ ♪ ♪ So you’re goin’ ♪ ♪ Could care less about
the five you’re blown’ ♪ ♪ Theater gets dark
just to start the show ♪ – I know this bass line.
I know how to play this bass line. – ♪ She’s dressed in yellow ♪ ♪ She says, “Hello, come sit
next to me you fine fellow” ♪ – Hey! – ♪ …without a second to lose ♪ ♪ And what comes next? ♪ ♪ Hey, bust a move ♪
– Oh, okay. – Oh my gosh, this song! – This song is so funky. – (singing along) ♪ Baby ♪
– ♪ Just bust a move ♪ – It’s a good song.
It’s a good song. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– Just from listening to it, is it called “Bust a Move”? – I know it’s “Bust a Move,”
but I don’t know who it’s by. – “Bust a Move” by Busta Rhymes? – (FBE) This is “Bust a Move”
by Young MC. – I literally would have
never ever guessed that. – I’ve never heard of him.
Is this a one hit wonder? – I’m disappointed in myself.
Labib, what are you doing? – (FBE) This song was a huge part
of hip hop’s mainstream acceptance. – It makes sense. – There’s nothing necessarily
super dirty or evil about it, and that’s what people just like
to assume rap music is. – I think because of the chorus,
it kind of can transcend to that pop genre, too,
so I can understand why it did really well. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ So what is wrong
with another sin? ♪ ♪ The bitch is hungry,
she needs to tell ♪ ♪ So give her inches… ♪
– I’m just waiting for the chorus. I’m like, “I know this one.” – ♪ More days to come,

it’s time for a show ♪ – This was on Guitar Hero,
on one of the Guitar Heroes. – ♪ Here I am ♪

but I don’t know the artist. – “Rock You Like a Hurricane”
by Scorpion. – “Rock You Like a Hurricane”
by The Scorpions. – (FBE) So this is
“Rock You Like a Hurricane” by Scorpions.
– “Scorpions.” – I’ve heard of all these bands,
but I just can’t put them to the actual song. – I know they were a band in the ’80s,
but they’re not one of the ones I know super well. – I’ve seen them.
They’re good. They’re really good live. Amazing vocalist, the lead singer. – I love ’80s hair band stuff. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Aaah-ha! Yes! – ♪ It’s gonna take me a lot
to drag me away from you ♪ ♪ There’s nothing
that a hundred men… ♪ – Yes, I’ve heard this.
This song is so good. – (singing along)
♪ I bless the rains down in Africa ♪ – ♪ Gonna take some time to do… ♪ – This is nice and smooth. – Pretty chill vibes. – ♪ (vocalizing song) ♪ – There’s so many things
that I forget about all of these decades because
in the ’80s, there was also the power ballad. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No, I’ve never heard it. I don’t really like it either. – Who is this by? I want to say Phil Collins,
but I don’t think that’s right. – That’s “Africa” by Toto. – This is “Africa,”
and it’s by Toto. – (FBE) This is “Africa” by Toto.
– This is the [bleep] meme?! This is the song?! – I love “Africa.” The harmonies in it
are just so massive. – (FBE) So this song is
arguably the internet’s favorite song. There’s an “Africa” bot
tweeting its lyrics. It has also been
featured in Stranger Things, South Park, and Community.
– Yes! I’ve heard it so many places. – And yet I’ve never heard of it.
Where have I been? – I thought “Hold the Line”
was their more popular song, but I guess “Africa” is. – It feels really iconic
every time you listen to it. Like, you just listen to it
and you’re like, “This song is definitely famous.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ That’s what I like about you ♪ – Oh, yeah! – ♪ That’s what I like about you ♪
– Hmm. – ♪ Hey! ♪ ♪ (upbeat pop music) ♪ – ♪ Uh huh huh ♪ – Oh, okay, yeah.
– ♪ Hey, hey… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ That’s what I like about you ♪ – Another one
that’s in the commercials. – I don’t like that.
– ♪ Hey! ♪ – ♪ Uh huh huh ♪ The original is such a good song,
but then the cover by Five Seconds of Summer
is equally as good for me. – (FBE) So do you know it?
– No, I don’t. I mean, I only know
the name of the song. “What I Like About You.” – “What I Like About You.”
I don’t know who it’s by. I’m so bad at naming the band. – “What I Like About You,”
and it’s by The Romantics. – (FBE) So this is
“What I Like About You” by The Romantics. – Oh, I don’t think
I’ve even heard of them. – Oh, okay. Yeah,
I don’t know who that is. – I didn’t like the whispering thing. It made me uncomfortable. – That song is seriously all over TV. It’s in every movie,
it’s the theme song for shows. It’s everywhere. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Out by the gas fires
of the refinery ♪ – (humming appreciatively) – ♪ I’m ten years burning… ♪ – The band sounds super familiar. – ♪ Nowhere to run… ♪ – I’m trying to think

♪ Born in the U.S.A. ♪ You need that grit. – ♪ Born in the U.S.A. ♪ – During the Fourth of July,
this song is everywhere. – ♪ …Daddy in the U.S.A. ♪
– Rock on. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I don’t know who this is or what the song is. – I know it’s called
“Born in the U.S.A.” I don’t know who it’s by. – “Born in the U.S.A.”
and I want to say it’s by Bruce Springsteen. – “Born in the U.S.A.”
by Bruce Springsteen. – (FBE) This is “Born in the U.S.A.”
by Bruce Springsteen. – Oh, this is Bruce Springsteen? – Isn’t that group with Bryan Adams
and Tom Petty? I feel like they’re
all kind of the same genre. – He’s an amazing musician,
amazing vocalist. How he has the energy and willpower

– Oh, okay. – I just love them,
“Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,”
“Under Pressure,” every song by Queen is amazing. – Of course. Listen! I was born in ’95, okay,
nearly 15 to 25 years before I was born, okay?
It’s okay. It’s okay if I mess up a few. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching
