It’s time to take a look at some photos that are going to make you wish you had a time machine handy. Did you know that James Dean stole Marlon Brando’s girlfriend shortly before his death? We’ve got the photo to prove it. Do you remember that picture of Lynda Carter in a swim cap that shocked the public? We’ve got that too. And we’ve got Jim Morrison hanging out in his home made vocal booth (also known as a “bathroom” in some parts of the country). We’ve also got classic photos from Woodstock, some sweethearts from the racing scene, and plenty of interesting facts about these small yet fascinating moments in history to keep you from falling asleep at your desk.

Crack open a can of Tab and dive into these 56 photos that will have you reminiscing with your crew before you know it. Read on!

Oh hey, it’s two MCs and one famously over-sexed megastar. and one Madonna’s “Virgin Tour” strutted across American in 1985 with its tongue firmly in cheek. Her opening act was none other than New York hip hop mainstays the Beastie Boys, but at the time they were just three punks who looked like they crawled out of the sewer. In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, the Beastie Boys Ad Rock (not pictured) discussed how much Madonna’s fans had the group, and how much Madonna loved that she had the worst opening act ever.

He told Fallon, “We played the first couple shows and they hated us. She realized that [the audience] hated us so much, that by the time she got on stage, it was the greatest thing ever." Hey, Madonna didn’t become the most famous singer of the ‘80s and ‘90s by not understanding her audience.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
