Billboard Hot 100 v. Official Charts Company: Mariah Carey, Madonna and 40 Years of No. 1s

Buzz 15:57PM EDT

Few people realize just how different the music across the pond is from that we listen to in America, that the Hot 100 doesn't exist in the UK, and that its equivalent to our singles chart doesn't just feature a whole bunch of American artists with even more One Direction and Ellie Goulding tracks. Music Times is looking back at the last four decades of music, and at the no. 1 hits on August 10 every ten years on the spot, going back to 1975. The ultimate contest, of course, is which country has better taste. Last month the win went to the UK in the best-of-five showdown. This month features Mariah Carey, One Direction, TLC and more in the field.READ MORE

'Jive Talkin'" and Beyond: The Bee Gees No. 1's of The '70s

Buzz 17:39PM EDT

It was a dark day for fans of rock music on August 9, 1975, as the Bee Gees' "Jive Talkin'" would be announced as the no. 1 song on the Hot 100. It was the group's second no. 1 hit in its then-14-year career but it was the first that could be classified as "disco." Things would only get better/worse (depending on who you are) from there on out, as the Gibb brothers would become the biggest names in the genre's short history, releasing another seven no. 1 hits before 1980 struck. These are those tracks.READ MORE

7 Bands Keith Richards Hated (at the time): Led Zeppelin and The Beatles(?)

Buzz 16:14PM EDT

Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones surprised the world this week when he claimed in an interview that The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'—what many consider to be the best album of all time—was a "mishmash of rubbish." Few people could maintain a career after dissing The Beatles, but Richards, regardless of whether we agree with him, has that sort of clout. And he didn't forgive his own band from experimenting with psychedelia, comparing the "rubbish" of 'Sgt. Pepper's' with the Stones' 'Their Satanic Majesties Request.' The guitarist wasn't shy about airing out his complaints regarding other huge acts, even when he was younger. In fact, during a 1969 interview with Rolling Stone, he badmouthed everyone from Led Zeppelin to, yes, The Beatles.READ MORE

7 Bad Dress Codes on Album Art: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, KISS and More

Buzz 14:40PM EDT

Today marks the 50th anniversary of 'Help!' going to no. 1. It was a great album by The Beatles, and also one of the most misguided fashion stataments on an album cover. Music Times digs up less-then-classics from KISS, the Jackson 5 and Girls Generation for further examples of bad uniform choices on record art.READ MORE

50 Years of Rolling Stones No. 1s: "Satisfaction," "Paint It Black" and More

Buzz 16:41PM EDT

Many a joke has been passed about the age of the Rolling Stones...and maybe this fact confirms it: It's been more than 50 years since the band released its first American no. 1 single, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart from July 10, 1965. It wasn't the "big breakthrough" that the band needed in the United States, but it certainly got the ball rolling faster, ensuring the group's status as one of the biggest bands in music history. The Stones released seven other no. 1 singles over the next 50 years, and you can check them out below.READ MORE

5 Acts Who Have Landed Three Hot 100 Hits at One Time: The Beatles, Ariana Grande and A Disco Icon

Buzz 16:32PM EDT

Rapper 50 Cent set a new high during 2005 when he became the first rapper to have three songs in the Top 5 of the Hot 100 at one time. We're not going to hold everybody to that standard, as only one band in history has ever landed three songs of its own in the Top 5 at the same time. In fact, 50 Cent's accomplishment was aided in that one of those songs featured him as a guest on a Game single. Fitty's accomplishment was still impressive, but he's never managed to get even three of his own songs into the Top 10 of the Hot 100 at the same time. Only five acts have, without relying on guest spots in other performers' songs.READ MORE
