3. We've all heard the song "Closing Time" in hundreds of different bars at the end of the night 

but it's not about bars. Semisonic's lead singer Dan Wilson says he wrote the song about childbirth, when his wife was about to have a baby but he DISGUISED it so that his band wouldn't freak out that he was writing cheesy new-dad songs.

5. The Eagles' "Greatest Hits" Has Overtaken Michael Jackson's "Thriller" to Become the Best-Selling Album of All Time

If you're a big bar trivia person, you probably know that the best-selling album of all time is MICHAEL JACKSON's "Thriller". Well, that's no longer the case.

Yesterday, the Recording Industry Association of America announced that the EAGLES' "Greatest Hits 1971-1975" was certified 38-TIMES PLATINUM, and has overtaken the #1 spot. That's 38 million in sales.

That Eagles album was #1 for most of the early 2000s, until "Thriller" surpassed it after Michael's death in 2009.

"Thriller" is now in second place, at 33-times platinum, and "Hotel California" also by the Eagles is in third at 26-times platinum.

If you're wondering how the Eagles can suddenly have a lead of over 5 million in sales over Michael, it's because the RIAA doesn't calculate individual album sales often. In fact, they last updated the Eagles "Greatest Hits" in 2006, when it was certified 29-times platinum.

The numbers for "Thriller" are still fairly accurate. They last tallied the sales for that album last year.

8. Ultimate Classic Rock just put out a ranking of every Led Zeppelin song,

 from worst to best. Best was "Stairway to Heaven", no surprise the worst was a weird bonus track from the "Presence" reissue called "10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod". It doesn't sound anything like Zeppelin it sounds more like it belongs in an '80s soap opera.

9. TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA 

announced its 20th anniversary Ghosts of Christmas Eve tour. It'll be their second tour without founder PAUL O'NEIL, who died in 2017.
