1966: The Beatles' "Rubber Soul" album goes No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart on the same day their single "We Can Work It Out" goes No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart as well. The album would stay at the No. 1 spot for six weeks while the single would last at No. 1 for three weeks. "We Can Work It Out," which was recorded during the "Rubber Soul" sessions but not released on the album, was the last of six No. 1 singles in a row for The Beatles on the American charts, a record at the time.
