34 years ago today the Chicago White Sox hosted the infamous Disco Demolition Night, in which fans were given a discount admission price at Comiskey Park for bringing a disco record to be destroyed in a dumpster between games of a doubleheader. The promotion worked a little too well, as a sold-out park erupted into chaos and the White Sox were forced to forfeit a game.

So we’ll be honoring the Worst of Disco today. Nominations will be accepted in the comment thread, but we’ll start with the never-to-be equaled classic, “Disco Duck,” by Rick Dees.
