It’s September 10th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1974, after struggles with drug abuse and interpersonal conflicts, the New York Dolls broke up.
In 1975, Kiss released their first live record, Alive. The double-LP set also became their first top 10 album.
In 1988, Guns N’ Roses had the number one song in the country with “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”
In 1998, Green Day won the Moon Man for Best Alternative Video at the MTV Video Music Awards for “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).”
In 1991, Nirvana released their hit song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
