Why September 14th Matters In Rock History

It’s September 14th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1998, Metallica began recording their covers/compilation album, Garage Inc.
In 1979, Quadrophenia, the film based on The Who’s 1973 rock opera, was released. Sting acted in it.
In 1984, The Cars won Video of the Year for “You Might Think” at the first ever MTV Video Music Awards.
In 2003, Jet released their debut album, Get Born, which would go on to sell over three-million copies.
And in 2013, Lorde began a 19-week run on top of the Rock Songs chart with her hit song “Royals.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
