Investigative Journalism at Its Finest

January 28th, 2012, byJeremy Freed

While some journalists are content to investigate things like iPad factories and Mitt Romney’s tax situation, it’s heartening to know that there are still a few out there researching the real issues. Like, for instance, when exactly was Ice Cube’s famous “Good Day“?

According to Gawker, Murk Avenue’s Donovan Strain has not just undertaken this weighty assignment, but—after exhaustive cross-referencing of sporting events, weather, technology and media—actually discovered the date in question.

According to Strain:

The ONLY day where:
Yo MTV Raps was on air
It was a clear and smogless day
Beepers were commercially sold
Lakers beat the SuperSonics
and Ice Cube had no events to attend was…

JANUARY 20 1992

So there you have it, folks. We can put that one to rest. Or maybe not. Either way, darn good song.
