See John Lennon’s iconic psychedelic Rolls Royce…it’s usually not so far away from us. Wings play their first single, one that got them banned in England, and stories from 20 years ago today, when Kurt Cobain was found. It still makes us sad.

The song…well, there’s a reason it’s hidden: It doesn’t add to the album, and feels tacked on solely to gain attention.
