Bomb threat in North Carolina declared over a Journey cassette

When someone in the mailroom of The Duke Energy Building looked at the package, it seemed…suspicious. A rectangular shape could be seen inside a manila envelope. With America on edge because of last week’s coordinated bomb threats, that employee decided to call the authorities. You know, just in case. Can you blame them?

The building was evacuated. The bomb squad was mobilized. The K-9 unit was called in. Roads around the building were closed.

When the package was carefully examined, it turned out to contain a cassette. By Journey. Not a literal bomb, but to some, it might have been a metaphorical one.

There’s no word on which Journey album it was. Enter your guess here.
