The Beatles already own at least a dozen Guinness World Records, including Most Recorded Song (‘Yesterday,’ natch), Most No. 1 Singles on the U.S. Chart (an even 20 between 1964-70), and Biggest All-Time Sales for a Band. And on Oct. 5, fans will gather in Liverpool to try and add one more record to the list.
If you heard Thin Lizzy‘s ‘The Boys Are Back in Town’ during the Republican National Convention last week and thought it was sort of a strange choice for a first-time presidential nominee, you aren’t alone. In fact, the mother of deceased frontman Phil Lynott has taken issue with presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s use of the song.
Four decades ago this month, Alice Cooper released the song that would help define his career — and become an annual staple on rock radio, not to mention graduation playlists, for years to come.
