Disco music sprang out of the 1970s club scene—most notoriously Studio 54 in New York City—characterized by elaborate light displays and flamboyant sequin fashions. Unlike rock music, disco downplayed guitars in favor of vocals, with a steady bass-driven beat. Chic, Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, the Village People, and the Jacksons all produced popular disco songs.

The genre went mainstream in 1977 with the release of the film “Saturday Night Fever.” The soundtrack featuring the Bee Gees became one of the best-selling soundtracks in history. Soon artists in other genres were producing disco-inspired songs like Lipps Inc.’s “Funkytown,” Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman,” and Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust.” Even the Grateful Dead ("Shakedown Street") and Rolling Stones ("Miss You") had disco phases, much to the horror of some of their hardcore fans.
