5/23/2000 Johnny Cash commits murder... sort of
May 23, 2000. This date saw the release of Johnny Cash's CD Murder. Actually it was part of a three album set called Love, God, Murder. It featured his classic "Folsom Prison Blues," along with songs by Bruce Springsteen, "Cocaine Blues," and many more songs that don't end with love and kisses.
Movie director Quentin Tarentino wrote the album notes.
