DEF: Missing Persons “Destination Unknown”
Los Angeles-based band Missing Persons qualifies as a no-hit wonder — an act that has made five or more appearances onÂ Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart without hitting the Top 40. The highest the band has reached in their five appearances is number 42, which happened twice. On this date in 1982, Missing Persons’ second song to hit number 42, “Destination Unknown,” climbed to that peak position. Today, “Destination Unknown” by Missing Persons is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
