Top Ten Worst Days In Music History


The Top Ten

1 2/3/1959

This terrible day held the deaths of legends Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens, who only was in the plane because of a very unlucky coin toss win. Big Booper (29), Buddy Holly (22), and Ritchie Valens (17). This is the date we come to know as the Day the music died, and it very well did. - Beatlesboy9

Gotta go with this one because not only did it take 1 musical legend away from us, but 2 others, as well. So heartbreaking... - Donut

Death Of Buddy Holly - FettiMC

The song American Pie was written about this day. Some of the greatest died. And the sad part is one of Valen's biggest fears was of flying and you know how the story ends - happyhappyjoyjoy

This is number 1 for worst day in music, no this is the worst day on the whole calendar for all celebrities MJ is the best person in the world he is better than everyone else!

MJ is the greatest person on earth! And the greatest musician on earth, go die in a whole if you don’t believe this was the saddest day for music! 2009 is the saddest music year!

If you disagree that this day isn't sad then go jump off a cliff into a pit of anacondas; TO SHOW NICKI MINAJ WHAT REAL MUSIC IS.
