You did good Phoenix, really good.
Here are the best answers according to legit sources.
Who actually started Rock n' Rock? (Not the term, but the music) - There is quite a debate over this. The popular opinion is Bill Haley Rock around the Clock Yes
Who started Punk? - Again it really comes down to opinion, most like to cite The Sex Pistols, but I am going to say The Clash Sex Pistols were given the nod on this one.
What band started Metal Rock? - Even though the majority will say Black Sabbath, I say Deep Purple.. Why? They released an album one year before Black Sabbath and if you listen to Purples "B" sides you will here the Melodic metal chordings and of course the crazy screaming vocals, but again most will Say Sabbath. Yeah came up with Black Sabbath
What band started the Mersy sound ? I know there was someone obscure before them but I would have to give the vote to the Beatles Jerry and the Pacemakers
What band started Grunge? I think there were a handful.. Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl jam.. Nirvana brought it to popularity, but all these bands were gigging at the same time.. Nirvana
Who was the first female to cross over from country to Pop music? I am a little lost on this one.. Maybe Patsy Cline? Maybe Nancy Sinatra
What guitarist is held as the best that ever was? This comes down to opinion also for me.. Who was the "best" or who was the "greatest" Hendrix is probably held as the greatest but the best? I couldn't say. Music has spanned such a timeline and there have been so many.. It would come down to personal interests I think hehe.. Les Paul is held as the greatest guitarist of our time.
What rock guitarist is held as the best player there ever was? See above Jimi Hendrix
Who is recognized as the best rock singer ever? Okay maybe I am going out on a limb, but in my opinion, Stever Perry or Freddy Mercury It was awarded posthumously by Rolling Stone
What group holds the record for the longest time on the Billboard charts with one song? I actually don't know this one, but guessing.. Michael Jackson, Elvis Presly, I know Whitney Houston had a long chart topper and so did Mariah cary or however it is spelled hehehe Boyz II Men
What performer holds the record for having the most songs at one time on the Billboard charts? I will say Michael Jackson Elvis Presley...Lil Wayne...Nicki Minaj
What songwriter holds the record for the most gold records for a songwriter? George Straight?
What songwriter/singer got paid the most for a single song? (It was a tune for TV) I think this is a trick question hehe, Ima say whoever wrote Happy Birthday Paul Anka He wrote the Tonight Show theme for Johnny Carson
What band was hit with a lawsuit for false advertising their shows? No Idea hehehe The Flying Burrito Brothers A lady sued them because their advertising depicted a Circus act. She got her money back + court costs. $79
What band was found lipsynching to their concerts? Milli Vanilli Yeah I have no idea how to spell that, though this has went on since the golden ages of music.. I mean tons did it on Ed Sullivan hehe, but Milli got in trouble for I guess false advertising haha, maybe that is the answer to the question just before this one lol Milli Vanilli
What band was found not actually playing their instruments at their concerts? I know for years the Monkeys didn't hehe (True) But the correct answer is ELO
What is the longest single cut song on an LP? Again not sure, but maybe Pink Floyd was behind it hahaha Ina Gadda DaVida By Iron Butterfly
Final question....the best rock guitar ever massed produced?
Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster? Neither, The Fender Telecaster is by far the greatest guitar ever made Stratocaster
