10/28/1957 (63 years ago today) - After a show in Los Angeles at the Pan Pacific Auditorium, local police confronted Elvis Presley backstage and "kindly" informed him that he was, in fact, NOT allowed to wiggle his hips onstage -- The following day, newspapers ran with the headlines announcing that if Elvis wanted to continue performing live, he was going to "have to clean up his act". At his next gig on 10/29, the Los Angeles Vice Squad filmed Elvis' entire concert, to try and determine whether he was being a good boy or a rebel. This actually happened!!!

10/28/1972 (48 years ago today) - It's like we always say, if you're gonna pick a tune to represent your cause, might as well make it a full-blown rocker: The United States Council for World Affairs announces it's adopting "Join Together" by The Who as their official theme song...

10/28/1989 (31 years ago today) - Janet Jackson starts four weeks at No. 1 on the album chart with "Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814". Significant, why? Turns out to be one of only three albums in music history to produce no less than SEVEN Top Ten U.S. singles! The other two? Brother Michael's "Thriller" and Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The U.S.A.". Elite company indeed.
