There's 24 high school yearbook pics of some of the legends of popular music. Some hit you right away and others are less obvious. How many can you guess correctly?

What are you on about. The pictures are shocking because the stars look almost unrecognisable. Especially Bruce. He looks like some kind of class freak in that photo. And yet, he became a Rock god and icon for Americana.

I got 'em all, save 3 (Yxxxxx), 14 (Txxxxx) and 20 (Pxx).

Does 21 out of 24 take the Gold?
