We continue our series on 100 of the darkest moments in pop culture history and this week's show is a little different. We take a look at the profound impact the AIDS epidemic had on pop culture in the 1980s into the 1990s. Numerous important pop culture figures like Freddie Mercury, Rock Hudson, Anthony Perkins, Arthur Ashe, Tom Fogerty, Eazy E, and others, died from causes liked to AIDS and HIV.
