There was this TV show on for a little while called History Rocks. It was on the History Channel but was likely canceled because it's such a dumb-sounding show. Basically, they would play pop hits from the 80s and 90s while showing montages of historical footage. Captions on the bottom of the screen would explain what was going on in each image or video clip. It sounds stupid, but I'm pretty sure that I learned more in 15 minutes of History Rocks than I did my entire freshman year of high school.
