Due to the vast popularity of disco, there were many backlashes from rock music supporters, many blue color workers and those that were just plain tired of the fads. Fads as a result of disco music included the mirror ball, lit dance floors, afros and leisure suits. A promotional night at Cominsky Park in Chicago, home of the Chicago White Sox, took place in July 1979. Disco Demolition Night was about blowing up a crate of disco records provided by the crowd on the field. However, a near riot ensued after the explosion with a mere 90,000 people in attendance. In the 80’s, disco was seen as a negative term. So disco eventually transformed into being known as dance music. Disco paved the way for new forms of dance music such as house, electronica and techno.
