Why June 15th Matters In Rock History


It’s June 15th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

- In 1986, U2 and The Police headlined a concert in New Jersey celebrating 25 years of Amnesty International. 

- In 1989, Nirvana released their debut album, Bleach

- In 2003, Metallica had the No. 1 album in the U.S. with St. Anger. It was their fourth record to top the charts.

- In 1961, Elvis Presley topped the UK chart with "Surrender."

- In 1965, Bob Dylan recorded "Like A Rolling Stone" for his album Highway 61 Revisited.

- And in 1992, Bruce Springsteen began his first world tour without the E Street Band in Stockholm, Sweden.

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
