1970: The Guess Who hit the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 with "American Woman". The song was born by accident when guitarist Randy Bachman was playing a heavy riff on stage after he had broken a string and the band had taken a break. The other members joined in on the jam and Burton Cummings started singing the first thing that came into his head. A fan in the audience had it all on tape and presented it to the group after the show. It was quickly developed into a full song in the studio and ended up spending 3 weeks at the top of the US singles chart. It made #19 in the UK.

1954: Britain's BBC bans the song "Such a Night" by Johnnie Ray after listeners complain about its 'suggestiveness'. Ray's animated stage persona included pounding on his piano, writhing on the floor and even crying, which earned him the nicknames "Mr. Emotion", "The Nabob of Sob", and "The Prince of Wails".
