For years April 1st has been the date to fool people for the sheer sake of amusement.
And Rock n Roll has always been in on the joke going all the way back to 1969.
Back then Rolling Stone magazine ran a fictional review of a fictional album by a fictional band called the Masked Marauders, who were supposedly Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison, all identified wih aliases.
The satirical review was written by famed rock critic Greil Marcus, himself using an alias, taking a dig at the Supergroup phenomenon that was producing acts like Crosby, Stills & Nash.
But it wasn't just rock fans who fell for it; some of the musicians' own business associates became angry that their clients were recording and releasing secret projects while under contract.
The hoax was taken a step further when Marcus hired some musicians to actually record an album, imitating the supposed participants' voices.
Once Warner Bros. released it, it was pretty hard not to get the joke, with the fake Jagger singing "I Can't Get No Nookie" and the Dylan impersonator singing "Cow Pie."
When fans finally realized it was a hoax, a fan club movement took hold to petition the record label to actually get them together for real.
Apparently the "I Can't Get No Nookie" song was the fan favorite.
Nearly 30 years later Rap Rock group Limp Bizkit used it for inspiration for their hit "Nookie".
