On this date in 1979: The Doobie Brothers were about to hit No. 1 on the pop charts, crashing the disco era with their soulful smash "What a Fool Believes." The B-52s were putting the finishing touches on their classic debut record – packed with party favorites like "Rock Lobster" and "Dance This Mess Around."
