During the first game, drunk fans started flinging their disco records at each other and at the players on the field. After the game ended, Dahl put on Army helmet and drove a Jeep around the field while the fans chanted "Disco sucks! Disco sucks! While players ran for cover, fans jumped the fences, stole the bases, toppled the batting cages, and tore up the infield. The White Sox were forced to forfeit the second game. And another nail was hammered into disco's coffin. But was the "Disco Sucks" campaign just a natural backlash to a popular fad, or was there something more sinister behind it?
Some claim the whole protest was manufactured by the executives of rock record companies, who secretly paid deejays to bad-mouth disco. Gloria Gaynor, known as the "Queen of Disco," sees no other way to explain the sudden outburst of hatred: "It was started by someone who felt the popularity of disco was dipping into their pockets," she said.
Certainly some record companies or producers may have been getting miffed, and I always believed that that whole thing was started by them. But whether disco was murdered or died a natural death, it was still a target years later. Even in10 years after the height of the backlash, the Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music defined disco as "a dance fad of the s with a profound and unfortunate influence on popular music.
Disco evolved into the mainstream dance music of the next two decades, such as house, drum and bass, and techno. All were more or less stripped-down versions of disco. Full orchestras were replaced by synthesizers, drum sets were replaced by programmed drum machines, and musical breaks were added by sampling pieces from funk, soul, and -appropriately enough- disco songs.
All of these recording methods began in disco studios in the early s and would flourish in years to come in dance, electronica, and even rap music. It quietly went back to its underground roots, where it lives on at dance clubs today -even more so after the popularity of disco-fueled acts of the mids like Cher, Erasure, and the Pet Shop Boys. And like most fads, a couple of decades later, disco started to become cool again.
Says Gloria Gaynor: "I always say that disco music is alive and well and living in the hearts of people all over the world. It simply changed its name to protect the innocent.
