In 1979, Chicago disc jockey Steve Dahl held a “disco de­mo­li­tion” be­tween games of a base­ball dou­ble­header at Comiskey Park. Dahl burned disco records brought by fans, who re­ceived a dis­count ad­mis­sion. Some fans de­cided to start their own fires and a mini-riot en­sued, forc­ing the Chicago White Sox to for­feit the sec­ond game of the dou­ble­header.
