Why April 21st Matters in Rock History

It’s April 21st and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1973, Alice Cooper went to number one on the album chart with Billion Dollar Babies.
In 2016, Prince was found dead at his home in Minnesota.
In 1984, Phil Collins started a three-week run at the top of the singles chart with “Against All Odds.” It was his first number one song.
And in 2004, California rockers Hoobastank had the number two song in the country with “The Reason,” which was number one on the modern rock chart.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
