The Ultimate Velvet Underground Quiz


The Velvet Underground are universally acknowledged as one of the most influential acts of all time, recording a host of critically-acclaimed albums, whilst undergoing upheavals, lineup changes and record company disputes. Through it all, their musical vision shone through, establishing them as a hugely respected artistic force.

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of its release, their classic second album White Light/White Heat has been rereleased in a three-disc super deluxe edition; featuring rare outtakes, previously unreleased studio tracks and live material, it's the perfect document of the second, electronic, stage of the band's evolution.
