October 5th An Incredible Day In Rock Music

I came across this list somewhat by accident, but was amazed by just how many things happened on the same day in music history. 


Bobby Darin's Mack The Knife hit #1 on this date in 1959 and remained in that spot for an astounding nine weeks. And that's just the start. Among those making news in different years on the day: Johnny Cash, ABBA, Olivia Newton-John, The Bee Gees, David Cassidy, The Temptations, The Beatles and more. 

Who knew that so much of significance happened over the years on October 5th?

October 5th a very busy day in Music History
