Spotify went public on Tuesday — a decade after the service launched — with a debut that gave the company a $29.5 billion valuation.

The company’s path to Wall Street traveled a road littered with failed music streaming service companies. Many have tried to make it, few have succeeded, but all of them had weird names.

Note: To keep the quiz interesting, we’ve removed generic identifying words from the names of some streaming services, such as “radio” or “music.”
