The Note Episode 4 | Disco Demolition: Riot to Rebirth (youtube.com)

Check out this short film by the Red Bull team about the infamous Disco Demolition movement that came to a head with the mass burning of disco records at a Chicago Whitesox game in 1979. A move that many believed to be a attack on the black and gay origins of the music that had taken over the world at the time. This was a violent and unprecedented backlash, in doing so dance music was driven back into the underground and perhaps made the movement stronger with house music, originating in the same city, emerging several years later.
