Luke Burbank, host of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," joins Madeleine for his weekly analysis of the awesome and not awesome news of the week.

Last Friday, Donovan Strain tried to identify the exact date of Ice Cube's song "Good Day." With a combination of researching weather reports, Lakers' scores, and the on-air schedule for "Yo MTV! Raps," it looks like Ice Cube's "Good Day" was in fact a memoir of Jan. 20, 1992.

Sadly, neither Ice Cube nor his publicist will confirm or deny the hypothesis.
