John Lennon and Yoko Ono checked in to Montreal's Queen Elizabeth Hotel at midnight on May 26, 1969 for a whole week.
John and Yoko's Bed-in was originally conceived in Holland two months earlier.
The newlyweds hosted a honeymoon "bed-in" for peace at the Amsterdam Hilton, wanting to use their celebrity for good. Lennon and Ono settled in at the corner suite rooms 1738-1740-1742
The gesture was part honeymoon, part performance art, interlaced with a protest against the Vietnam War. Spurred by the momentum of the first Bed-in, they were keen to do another. The notorious duo originally headed for the Bahamas, but Lennon found the island too hot to stay in bed for a week.
They wanted to go to New York but the U.S. authorities axed that plan, repeatedly denying the ex-Beatle a visa because of a previous marijuana arrest.
The end of the Bed-in was capped by a spontaneous recording of Give Peace a Chance.
Sometime between eight at night and three the next morning, along side a roomful of people including Timothy Leary, Toronto Rabbi Abraham Feinberg, musician Petula Clark, and members of the Canadian Radha Krishna Temple, the anthem for peace was recorded.
Give Peace a Chance reached no. 14 on Billboard's chart -- and would inspire an entire generation to sing a song of peace.
