On this day in 1983, L.A. movies theaters premier Michael Jackson’s 14-minute “Thriller” video. The Guinness Book of World Records later named it the “most successful music video” of all time, selling more than 9 million copies.
On this day in 1987, “Mony Mony” by Billy Idol, is replaced by “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany, at #1 in the US. Both songs were originally recorded in the ’60s by Tommy James & the Shondells. That is the first and only time that two covers of the same band were at #1 and #2.
Aerosmith made a guest appearance on Fox-TV’s “The Simpsons,” on this day in 1991. In their animated form they performed “Walk This Way.”
And it was on this day in 1995, that Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day was arrested for mooning the audience during a show in Milwaukee. He payed a $141.50 fine for indecent exposure.
