There are definitely wrong questions/answers on this quiz.

Question #5 asks what year was the "preacher stealing hearts at a traveling show". This was from "Desire" released in '88. Yet the correct answer is '78!

Question #29 asks where the "Streets" video was filmed. Apparently, San Francisco is the answer they want!

Question #41 asks which 1990's pop act did a cover of "I Still Haven't Found..."? Pet Shop Boys is the answer!! The only cover I know of for "I Still Haven't Found..." is by Cher and that's in concert!

That's 3 mistakes I found. Any more?

I do, however, recall "Where the Streets..." being a cover by the Pet Shop Boys. The only cover I know of for "I Still Haven't Found..." is by Cher and that's in concert!
I think you are right, and I definitely think you have a higher credibility than u2.com. But that's true for most of the posters here! Strange world isn't it.

I kept getting scores like 51-53 until I figured out those three mistakes. Once I found and corrected each one, I obtained a perfect score. How odd to get a perfect score when it's the wrong answer.

Uh... may I ask why? WoWY has lost tons of luster since its performance in the JT/Love Town tours. Why not pick one of those renditions where Bono's voice was rich and full and U2 had that spectacular ending on the song? Why take it from Slane where Bono's voice was a bit tired from the tour (outstanding concert, but his vocals were airy) and when WoWY wasn't quite the powerhouse it once was? And why not let us see more of the 80's U2 that's not available? Why only focus on more recent times?

That quiz is a joke. There were only 5 or 6 questions or so that i guessed (and with each i had a 1 in 3 chance of getting it right) and i knew the rest. And i somehow ended up with 43/54. 11 wrong, no way!!!!!!!

47/54 unless you count the ones that I got right that are wrong. and still it's just 49/54.
I couldn't really remember the 1'st UK#1. and who knows what other "right" answers I got wrong..

The Pet Shop Boys did a cover of Streets, the confusion at u2.com must have come from that.
