On this Date, September 24th, in 1991: Nirvana released its sophomore album, Nevermind — a record that was inarguably responsible for bringing alternative rock into the mainstream. Nevermind would enter the Billboard 200 album chart at 144, peaking at Number 1 in January of 1992.
On This Date, May 22nd in 1965: The Beatles went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the eighth time with “Ticket to Ride”, which spent one week on top. “Ticket to Ride” was featured in The Beatles awesome movie Help!, which I saw for the first time when I was five years old, and which is still one of my favorite movies of all time! The Beatles!
