Today you can count the major oil companies on one hand—Shell, ExxonMobil, BP, Unocal, and, er, we’re sure there’s another. But back in the pioneering days of the automobile, and even well into the 1960s, there were dozens, if not hundreds of smaller brands competing for shelf space among the big brands. Because of their lesser name-recognition, these smaller refineries depended heavily on creative and colorful branding and design to attract potential customers, creating a kind of golden age of gasoline and oil advertising.

Heardle is a music-based game that tests your knowledge by guessing song titles based on their openings. It is a great tool for discovering new music and revisiting old favorites. The heardle 90s is a game that combines music and trivia in a fun and challenging way. You can play it online for free and test your knowledge of songs from different genres and eras. The game is simple: you listen to the first few seconds of a song and try to guess its title and artist. You have six tries to get it right, and each time you get a longer snippet of the song. If you love music and puzzles, you will enjoy Heardle.

…and Unocal isn’t even its own company anymore, it’s part of Chevron.
