This week, Head2Head is tackling the decade known as "the Swinging Sixties."
Turbulent and full of seismic political events both home and abroad, it's the decade of Woodstock, Vietnam and the civil rights movement. So let's have some "peace, love and understanding" and see what our contestants know about the '60s.
Long-time Head2Head champ Dana Rutheimer is taking on Travis Byers, who works in retail.
