Which of the following was not a hit single by The Fray?
- You Found Me
- Nothing Like This
- Over My Head
- How to Save A Life
The three real songs here have been The Fray’s biggest hits. “How to Save a Life” peaked at #3 on the US singles chart, “You Found Me” peaked at #7, and “Over My Head (Cable Car)”. The tracks cemented The Fray’s status as pop rock mainstays in the late 2000s decade. Nothing Like This (2010) is actually an album by Rascal Flatts. Sneaky, we know. The Fray plays FirstMerit Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island on June 26.

What performer or group of performers have made the most appearances at Lollapalooza since the first Grant Park festival in 2005?
- The Black Keys
- Temper Trap
- Perry Farrell
Lead man for alternative band Jane’s Addiction, Perry Farrell founded Lollapalooza as a farewell tour for the band in 1993. He has been directly involved in 15 on-stage acts in its history, often more than one per year. He has committed himself to dance music, as Perry’s Stage has become a mainstay at the festival. Him and his wife, Etty, perform together with other big name performers like Chris Cox, a classic name in house music. The Black Keys have appeared seven times including Lolla Chile and Brazil in 2013, MGMT four times including Chile and Brazil in 2012, and Temper Trap four times including Chile and Brazil in 2013.

When did the Chicago Fire move from Soldier Field to Toyota Park in Bridgeview?
The Fire finally got their soccer-only stadium in 2006 after the team negotiated a deal with Bridgeview to move out of Soldier Field. They still play at the modern Soldier for bigger, non-MLS matchups like Manchester United in 2011, but Toyota Park has proven to be a successful stadium for Chicago-area soccer fans.

Who was the White Sox’ star first baseman during their 2005 run to a World Series championship?
- Jim Thome
- Adam Dunn
- Paul Konerko
- Frank Thomas
Six-time All-Star and 2005 ALCS MVP Paul Konerko still plays for our beloved Sox, standing as one of the best players in franchise history. He’s been in black pinstripes since 1999, hitting over 400 home runs, being a leader on and off the field, and flying under the radar as one of the AL’s best at the position for over a decade.

When was the last year both the Cubs and White Sox made the playoffs?
2008 was the most magical season in recent history for Chicago baseball as both teams won their respective divisions. The two swept each other in a heated summer Crosstown Classic, were at the forefront of the baseball world all season, and had star power to match anyone’s. Neither team has been back to the playoffs since, although the Sox lost close pennant races with Minnesota in 2010 and Detroit in 2012.
