20 Years Ago: Billy Idol’s ‘Cyberpunk’ Album Released

45 Years Ago: Pink Floyd’s ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’ Album Released

Even though it was only Pink Floyd's second album,  'A Saucerful of Seconds' is the literal sound of a band in transition, clinging to its past even as it plunges forward into the unknown. The album -- released 45 years ago -- is often overlooked by casual fans. It isn't a front-to-back masterpiece like 'The Dark Side of the Moon' or 'Wish You Were Here,' and it lacks a distinctive radio classic. But it's a crucial album in the band's sonic evolution.

35 Years Ago: The Rolling Stones’ ‘Some Girls’ Album Released

And they got it with 'Some Girls.'

‘Drunk History’: Comedy Central Show to Feature Kristen Wiig, Jack Black and Many More

The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.

Massive Supply of Classic Atari Games to Be Excavated From Landfill

Legend has it that 30 years ago Atari buried a massive cache of video game cartridges in a landfill in New Mexico. Specifically, they buried tons and tons of copies of the failed 'E.T.' video game, an Atari non-classic that nearly sunk the gaming industry. Now a film crew has been given six months to search the massive 100 acre landfill to find the motherlode of lost games and confirm that the story is really true.

35 Years Ago: Foghat’s ‘Stone Blue’ Released

By the time they went in to record their seventh studio album, Foghat had already forged a very successful career by melding blues and rock. They continued that winning streak by releasing 'Stone Blue' in May of 1978, but the album also heralded the musical changes that would eventually lead to the band's commercial undoing.

30 Years Ago: Metal Has Coming Out Party at California’s US Festival

Metal's roots may have come from the late '60s and '70s, but it can be argued that the genre's real coming out party happened May 29, 1983 at the US Festival in San Bernardino, Calif. The music weekend offered a wide array of musical options, with each day catered to a specific sound, but it was the Heavy Metal Day on May 29, 1983, that showed just how popular that metal had become.

10 Years Ago: Led Zeppelin’s ‘How the West Was Won’ Album Released

Forget ‘The Song Remains the Same.’ Led Zeppelin’s 1976 live album/soundtrack is bloated, boring and filled with zero musical tension. The best Led Zeppelin live album available (at least legally) is ‘How the West Was Won,’ the three-record set culled from two concerts the world’s biggest rock band performed in California in June of 1972. It was released ten years ago on May 27, 2003.
