Today is February 20 and it was on this day in 1967 in Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen, Washington[108 Miles SW from Seattle], Kurt Donald Cobain was born.

He Went on to become the early leader of the Grunge music movement as the lead singer of Nirvana durning the early part of the 90's

it was on this day in 1981 the title song of the classic comedy movie "9 to 5" top the pop chart and back then became a song you can stop humming until it became annoying.

But also on this day 12 years later in 1993, Whitney Houston top the pop chart for the 14th week in a row with a song that became more annoying then "9 to 5" it was the song from that damn Bodyguard movie thankfully it was replace by anndor song of big time annoyed "A Whole New World" from that Aladdin movie which went on to win the Oscar for Best song in a movie that same year.

Also on this day in 1976, before the Internet, before blog, before Music video, before SPIN, before everything we were threaded to a major music event of Epic proportion when the rock band "KISS" yes that band placed there Footprint in cement in Front of the K.I.S.S.
