Some of these were difficult to answer because a lot of your "antonyms" were used in the form of slang. For example "Your death wouldn't rule me" in that context the word rule comes of more as like if you were to rule over somebody like a King. Other than a few other questions like that overall a fun quiz.

Yes, rule the way it is used here is no antonym of suck. Someone rules, as in "is awesome". And someone rules you, as in "controls you". So you are ruled by someone.

the way it is used here is grammatically incorrect.

rule is also slang in this instance, why not use a slang antonym for a slang word? it took me a minute but I got it even though I've never heard of the song

"Killed" would be a better opposite for "Born", as one can be born or be killed. One cannot be "Died". I'm not trying to be picky, but if the word had been "Killed" I would have gotten the answer.
+1
Level 67
May 28, 2019
Yes, born needs an auxiliary verb. You get born and you die. Though they both mean things that just happen. The get in getting killed refers to someone activiely doing it. So even though the amounts of word needed are closer in your example, language wise they are not closer at all. (and also not meaning wise)

Funny quiz idea; the problem with quizzes like this, however, is that there is often more than one technically correct answer. For instance, "Big Daddy" is a song by Talking Heads (and for me, it's much more familiar than Big Poppa).
+7
Level 57
Apr 9, 2015
It's all in the wording. If the antonym was "Small mommy", then "Big daddy" would be accurate.

It seems to me that "won't die" and "will survive" are synonymous.

Level 56
Apr 9, 2015
This is because of the fact that if pairs of words are "antonym'd" the result is a double negative or positive, ie the overall meaning is the same and not the opposite. But the quiz is really just a fun thing of thinking of antonyms for each significant word and figuring out a song title. I actually got the "rule with me" one without believing it until I tried it in Google, because I've never heard of that one (whereas I know at least two songs called Without You by Harry Nillson alone!)

It's already been said, but Heaven and Earth are not opposites. Like, at all. Please change it to something else, like Sky which has already been suggested.

Could it? Genuinely asking. Tomorrow is the day after today, and yesterday is the day before today- opposites. Today is the day before tomorrow or the day after yesterday, but tomorrow is not the day after tomorrow nor the day before yesterday, so in my head only yesterday and tomorrow are antonyms. Today is different than tomorrow, but not opposite per se

There's no such thing as an antonym for a shape. Cubes and balls are in no way opposites.

Cube and ball are both three-dimensional objects. Only difference is, one is angular, the other is round. Seems like a good antonym to me.

The opposite of cube is obviously sphere. The antonym of ball should be box, I feel.

Ball v cube is terrific; gotta chuckle at that one. Really had me scratching my head as well.

Box - interesting suggestion. It did get me wondering what is the best logical opposite for "ball".

One could go the whole hog and have the antonyms of words like "of" - that is effectively the ablative, so maybe you could have "at" or "to" (the equivalent of the dative) as the opposite. But that would be going too far.

I love this quiz - only missed two. I've never heard of Big Poppa, though I did try an educated guess at Big Pappa and other variations to no avail. I also didn't get "Wrecking Ball" - I don't think it's too picky to say that cube and ball are not antonyms. They're just 3D shapes (well technically ball is just an object) which, as others have mentioned, can't have antonyms.

Disappointed that I didn't get Wrecking Ball, I remember hearing it a lot when it came out. There are so many potential parody songs here, much of the rest are very dark such as Hate Mansion and Died to be Tame. Dyin' la Muerte Cuerda is easily both.

I can support the argument that a cube is the opposite of a sphere, but it's definitely not the opposite of ball. Thinking about what would be the opposite of ball, I immediately thought of net. In most sports, a ball goes into a net (even if it goes through a hoop first). Can anyone come up with something better?
