Your Random History Lesson of the Day

Today is a very special day in music history. It was 30 years ago that many thought a little Aussie named Rick Astley was more than likely going to be a one-hit-wonder with his song "Never Going to Give You Up," how wrong they were.

The song which has now spawned its own life on the internet via Rickrolling is a pop culture treasure.

Astley tweeted out to fans, "30 years ago today I said I was Never Gonna Give You Up."

It was exactly 31 years ago today that Queen became the first western act since Louis Armstrong to perform in Easten Europe when they played at Budapest's Nepstadion, Hungary.

32 years ago today, the Eurythmics were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)', the duo's only UK No.1 single. Fun fact, Stevie Wonder played the harmonica on this song.

Tina Turner called it quits on ike and ended their 16-year marriage and successful musical partnership.
