1979: Between games of a baseball doubleheader involving the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers at Comiskey Park, disco records were blown up as part of a promotion dubbed Disco Demolition Night; fans subsequently rushed the field, and, as a result of the ensuing mayhem, the second game was forfeited to the Tigers.
You really can't blame them for blowing up disco records, I seem to remember a movement called Disco Must Die.

Well yesterday. August 2, 1979 Thurmon Munson killed in his own plane, a twin engine jet he had owned and been licensed to fly for a few weeks. Pilot error on approach, practicing landings. Two survived. Munson was alive but paralyzed, trapped and couldn’t be freed and died from the fire.
At the Mets game, the announcement.
