Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, A Band Called Death, and America's Birthday Bash in Miami


Nathan's 98th Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest is sure to be a source of both laughter and disgust. Last year, Joey Chestnut—–the number-one-ranked eater in the world––tied his own world record by consuming 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk in attitude, spirit and volume before “punk” existed, these three teenage brothers played a few local gigs in the mid-’70s and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed.
