This Day In Music History

Amazon

July 13th

1968Steppenwolf releases their hit ‘Born to Be Wild’. The lyrics are responsible for the term “heavy metal,” and it quickly becomes an anthem for bikers everywhere. Written by Mars Bonfire, ‘Born to be Wild’ was originally supposed to be a slow ballad and was offered to other bands before Steppenwolf.  They rearranged it and sped it up, and the rest is history.

1985Elton John re-signs with his current label, MCA Records, for what was at the time, the biggest signing deal in history.  The contract was set at $8 million for 5 albums.

1974 - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band gain some praise in the music industry with their six show, three night residency at the Bottom Line in New York City. They played the first set of shows and receive rave reviews.

2003Prince, once again, takes an unorthodox approach with his music.  He releases his new album “N.E.W.S.” as an exclusive digital download. It consists of only four songs, each 15 min long.
