3). Knowing the way Rolling Stone is, I almost want to guess they picked The Rolling Stones.

2)  The Theme from SWAT.


3)  This has to be either Cream or CSN.  Since Cream came first, I'll go with them.

No idea if they were even tracking stuff like that back then.

Both incorrect.


I believe they didn't start tracking this until the 1960s.


I'll give a hint later if needed.

Well, a quick search didn't exactly find the answer outright, but I think I kinda saw the answer. Would have never guessed it in a million years.
