David Bowie got married on this day in 1970, and managed to release 12 records while in the 10-year long relationship. In other news, the former starman just released his first record in a decade, The Next Day. Welcome back, Bowie!


7032-largeOzzy Osbourne, original frontman of Black Sabbath, was voted preferred ambassador of Earth in the event of encountering extraterrestrial life by a Yahoo poll on this day in 2004. We can only hope…



13353-largeBob Dylan released his fifth studio album, Bringing It All Back Home, on this day in 1965. This record has split personalities—electric on side A and acoustic on side B. Truly the best of both worlds!


8197-largeThe Smiths, fronted by the eccentric Morrissey, played their first show in London on this day in 1983, and would sign with Rough Trade records two months later. The world has never been so happy to be so sad.



48503-largeAlice Cooper’s Billion Dollar Babies lived up to its name when it topped the charts in both the U.K. and the U.S on this day in 1973. Perhaps it was Cooper’s infamous showmanship that catapulted this album to platinum status.



44876-largeJohn Lennon and Yoko Ono began their iconic bed-in protest at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel on this day in 1969. So you say you want a revolution, eh?



35938-largeHappy Birthday Diana Ross! A certified Motown icon, Diana turns 69 today, which means she has more hit singles (70) than years lived.
