Disco Demolition Night at Comiskey Park in Chicago 1979

Today in 1979, the Chicago White Sox hosted the infamous Disco Demolition Night between games of a double-header at Comiskey Park. Fans got into the game for 98 cents if they brought a disco record... so the LPs could be stacked in a pile and blown up.

It was the brainchild of radio legend Steve Dahl, a disc jedi on Chicago's Classic Rock station WLUP. (You'll see the detonation at the 4:05 mark in this video.)

After Steve left, 7,000 fans charged the field and continued to throw and burn even more disco records. So much chaos ensued that the second game of the double-header had to be canceled. The White Sox were forced to forfeit that game because of it.

If you grew up in Chicago like I did you knew someone who claimed to have been there.
