The Day Disco Died

July 12th 1979 was the date of Disco Demolition, the brainchild of legendary Chicago DJ STEVE DAHL.  Yes, it was a bit of mayhem, but it was also a radio promotion that brought in, by some estimates, 50,000 fans.  And it's still being talked about today. 

(Here's a video from ESPN about the event.  The explosion happens at 4:09.)
