The Secret History of Rock Trivia Blog 006

Welcome to Who Wants to be a Know-It-All?, the game where we see just what kind of trivia geek you are!

Every week, I’ll post one of my “I Did Not Know That!”-type videos, what I like to call The Secret History of Rock Trivia of the Week.

And remember: if you have any kind of weird trivia, I’m always interested in it! Send it via tiwtter (@alancross), Facebook, or leave a comment at the bottom of this post. If your trivia happens to be credible, I’ll use it in one of my video blogs and will credit you.

    So every day I twitter you a one hit wonder and some times you respond and some times you dont and I always get joy when you do. Soon and by soon I probably mean in the morning I am gonna mention Devo. I know they were more than one hit…call it two or three. I actually even know what happened too them, well at least Mark Mothersbaugh. Seems old Mark has become quite comfortable in the world of soundtrack work. He did the rugrats tv series and has done many movies including I believe Bottle rockets, Happy Gilmour and most recently 21 jump street among others. Not bad for someone who stood for the DE Evolution of man.
    ps. you really should follow me. I am damn funny.
    Also just for fun…the fade out of REM;s what the Frequency Kenneth….chorus sort of goes…whats the frequency ooooh ohhh…except the last onr Michael Stipe sings…..dont fuck with me..ooohhh…listen carefully…its there. and nobody in radio is any the wiser…until next time..keep on rocking in the free world.
