Summary
The War on Disco explores the culture war that erupted over the rise of disco music. Originating in underground Black and gay clubs, disco unseated rock as America's most popular music by the late 1970s. But many diehard rock fans viewed disco as shallow and superficial. The hostility came to a head on July 12, 1979, when a riot broke out at "Disco Demolition Night" at a baseball game in Chicago.
