Why September 16th Matters In Rock History

It’s September 16th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 2006, Bob Dylan had the number one album with Modern Times, his first chart topper since 1976’s Desire.
In 2004, in Hollywood, on the first date of their national tour, Green Day unveiled their new rock opera, American Idiot.
And in 2006, R.E.M. was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Atlanta.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
