Weirdly, it was The Beach Boys who actually recorded one of Manson's songs (at the behest of drummer Dennis Wilson who had briefly befriended Manson before catching on to how unbalanced and bizarre he really was) --The song, "Cease To Exist", was released as "Never Learn Not To Love", the B-side to "Bluebirds Over The Mountain"; it peaked at No. 61 in early 1969. Strangeness across the board...

3/6/1982 (35 years ago today) - The Go-Go's start a six week run at No. 1 with their debut album "Beauty And The Beat" -- Thanks to the super-fun-sounding/catchy-dance singles "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got The Beat", the LP goes on to sell over two million copies, officially making it one of the most successful debut releases of all time! For a decade that produced an awful lot of slickly-produced synthesizer-shticky stuff, The Go-Go's were a pretty straightforward breath of fresh air -- this was definitely one of the better (and most likeable) albums of the 1980's...
