Also on this day in 1978 the band played a show at the The Limit Club in Sheffield. A media reviewer used the phrase Bludgeon Riffola to describe their sound. This prompted them to take the negative comment and use it as the name of their own record label which still exists today.

On this day in 2001 Joe Elliott posted a message online following the terrorist attacks that took place in New York and Washington D.C..
