Music is no trivial matter. That's why our first-ever test of musical knowledge is called it a "quiz show" instead of trivia.

Lost Rhino Brewing Co. in Ashburn, Va., hosted our event, and contestants signed up at the venue. In unrecorded preliminary rounds, we whittled a field of 16 down to eight.

Then we turned the mics on, and the real fun began. Those eight contestants faced each other one-on-one, bracket-style, and won fabulous box sets, brewery gift cards and other prizes.

The ultimate champion (we won't reveal that person here; you need to listen) also was awarded the coveted Dad Rock custom mixtape!
