1971: Janis Joplin's posthumously released album "Pearl" hits No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart, where it would stay until April 30, 1971. The album, which Joplin finished recording just before her October 1970 fatal heroin overdose at the age of 27, featured her biggest hit single, a cover of Kris Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee."
