Music in 1978

By Patrick Mondout

Disco was so prevalent in 1978 that some of the most unlikely rock acts turned out disc-tinged albums - some successfully (Rolling Stones, Blondie, Rod Stewart) and some not so successfully (Chicago, Elton John). The year also saw the recorded debuts of both Prince and Van Halen, with the latter eventually selling over 10 million copies.
