July 25, 1999

On this day in 1999, the 30th Anniversary of Woodstock ends, unlike the 25th Anniversary, with riots, fires, looting, three rapes, and other crimes, including three accidental deaths. In addition, several fans were hospitalized from drinking polluted water and over 700 people had to be treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Woman were demeaned terribly when appearing on stage, whether to introduce an act or perform, they were immediately greeted with demands to “Show your tits!”

Limp Bizkit attended and decided it would be a good idea to get everyone riled up to “Break Stuff”, idiots! Oh, and then Creed played.

It really was the day the 90’s died.
