1980: Queen enjoy their third UK #1 album with "The Game", which featured the singles "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". Both of those releases topped the Billboard Hot 100 in America and the LP went on to sell over four million copies.
1978: Gerry Rafferty, once a member of Stealers Wheel, earns a Gold record for "Baker Street", which reached #2 in the US and #3 in the UK.
1982: "Valley Girl" by Frank Zappa and his 14 year old daughter Moon Unit, enters the Billboard Pop chart at #75. It will peak at #32 in August.
1966: The Lovin' Spoonful release "Summer In The City". Although they would place seven straight songs in Billboard's Top Ten, this would be their only number one.
1988: MTV bans Neil Young's video "This Note Is For You", which parodied corporate Rock by showing a Michael Jackson look-alike whose hair catches fire. The ban would soon be lifted and the video was put into heavy rotation, resulting in it eventually winning the MTV Video Music Award for Best Video of the Year in 1989.
