1979 Disco Riot

With these hard times, who's to say that anti-disco riots will not spontaneously break out again?

No injuries reported! What kind of a riot is that!

"Thanks for that on-the-spot report, Les. For those of you who've just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven!"

Salmon Lips needs a smack upside the head.
And as for the rioters....do you think drugs/alcohol may have been involved? I don't get the riot mentality in cases like this. Don't like disco music? Change the channel. There is no need to destroy a field.

No but I'm going to get all shook up if'n y'all don't quit punnin' around.

Instead of fighting, they should all just do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight.

Just so happens that The Smith's "Panic" should start playing as I clicked the comments field.

"Burn down the Disco,
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
Says nothing to me about my life.
Hang the blessed DJ"
