Which came first: This classic TV show or that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band?

Which came first: Andy or The Beach Boys? Star Trek or Pink Floyd?

A band has to last a long time before it can make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Musicians are not eligible until 25 years past their first release. That means you have to matter a quarter of a century later. It also means that groups in the Hall of Fame were rocking out long ago.

But how long ago? We picked a handful of famous bands — and a handful of classic TV shows. Going by the date of the band's first record release and the date of the series' premiere, can you tell which came first? Take a guess!

  2. Which is older: The Andy Griffith Show or The Beach Boys?
  3. Which is older: The Twilight Zone or The Supremes?
  4. Which is older: Knight Rider or U2?
  5. Which is older: The Mod Squad or Fleetwood Mac?
  6. Which is older: M*A*S*H or Rush?
