Why July 25th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 25th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1989, the Beastie Boys released their second album, Paul’s Boutique, which is named after a store in Brooklyn.
In 1981, Air Supply went to number one with their song “The One That You Love.”
And in 2006, Metallica put four albums up for sale on iTunes. After leading the charge against file-sharing service Napster, the band let fans download Kill ‘Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets and …And Justice for All.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
