17. 'What's the Frequency, Kenneth?' by R.E.M.
R.E.M.’s first single from their 1994 album “Monster” was released on September 5 and reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100. The title refers to a 1986 incident involving two unknown men who attacked journalist Dan Rather by repeating "Kenneth, what is the frequency?" The song has become one of the band’s most-played and was included on both of their best hit albums. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Frank Micelotta/Getty)
