The Who recorded “My Generation,” on this day in 1965. Roger Daltrey said he stuttered the lyrics in an effort to fit them to the music. The BBC initially refused to allow radio airplay of the song because it did not want to offend people who stutter, but eventually reversed the decision. “My Generation” was named the 11th greatest song by Rolling Stone magazine on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

On this day in 1968, The Beach Boys performed “Do It Again” and “Good Vibrations” on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Queen release their “Fat Bottomed Girls”/”Bicycle Race” single, on this day in 1978, Queen’s first double A side release. The video for the song was shot at the Dallas Convention Center. 

“Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson hits #1 on this day in 1979.

And finally, on this day in 1997,  Matchbox Twenty headlines their first tour, starting in Las Vegas.
