Asked if he thought he’d ultimately beaten the rock DJs who campaigned against his music, Nile Rodgers says he felt defeated.
“Disco Sucks won. Certainly as far as CHIC is concerned they won.”
“What’s interesting is that after Disco Sucks not only did we never have another Number One record but a year later there were a bunch of records imitating us that were considered hip hop, rap or rock. Exactly one year to the day in America the Number One record was Queen’s Another One Bites The Dust! Then we had Rapper’s Delight, Radio Clash… a ton of records that did our little riff.
“For some reason we were targeted as the disco gods so we became the disco devils.”
