January 8

Today's a very important day in the history of Rock n' Roll, because today is the birthday of the King... of the Loverboys. Mike Reno, lead singer of Loverboy, was born on this day, and Canada never rocked so hard. EVER. (I'm looking at you, Nickelback...) You see, Loverboy, in all their big hair glory, gave the world its blue-collar anthem:
Working For the Weekend. That song is the audio equivalent of Red Bull. Anybody who's hated a shift at their job and finished it anyway knows the lyrics in their soul, but it was Mike Reno and Loverboy who gave those feelings a voice.
So Happy Birthday, Mike Reno. If you'd had about five more songs like this, you guys would have been... Journey, I guess. But you're still rockin', and that's the important thing!
Here's an internet meme starring somebody that is not Mike Reno, celebrating Loverboy's contribution to humanity:
