- Music for the People: OK, maybe it’s just music for the teenage girls of the 1990s. On this day in 1991, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch hit number one on the Billboard charts with the single “Good Vibrations.” Mark was propelled to super stardom thanks to his brother Donnie, a member of New Kids on the Block. With Donnie’s help, Mark gave the world the best white guy rap song to date. But, ask him about it now and he’ll likely shy away from the topic. Mark Wahlberg is now a distinguished, respected actor in Hollywood.
