On this day in 1968 the album 'The Beatles', better known as "The White Album",  was certified Gold.

It went 19-TIMES PLATINUM in February of 2001.

The album included "Back in the USSR"

"Glass Onion"

"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da"

"Why Don't We Do It in the Road?"

"Birthday"

"Helter Skelter" (Which is actually about a roller coaster...not murder)

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (The best song on the album, in my opinion.)
