The Day The Music Exploded • 4 months ago
Today marks the anniversary of one of the most insane cultural events of the late 20th century. We are of course talking about "Disco Demolition Night," which happened on July 12, 1979 between games of a doubleheader at Chicago's old Comiskey Park. The promotional event was the brainchild of two Chicago disc jockeys, and involved blowing up a dumpster filled with disco records in the outfield. Amazingly, things got out of control, fans stormed the field, and 39 people were arrested. While Disco Demolition Night didn't "kill" disco, it was a clear sign people were sick of the genre, and disco soon became (and remains) a national joke.
