Ice Cube's "Good Day" located  JAN 30 2012

An internet sleuth used the lyrics of Ice Cube's It Was a Good Day to figure out when his exceptional day occurred.

CLUE 3: "The Lakers beat the Super Sonics"
Dates between Yo MTV Raps air date AUGUST 6 1988 and the release of the single FEBRUARY 23 1993 where the Lakers beat the Super Sonics...

Update: Someone fact-checked the original calculation and found it wanting. (thx, trevor)
