Remember when disco sucked? Now it’s being used to fight cancer. Thousands of cancer survivors and their caregivers came out as the Village People and Gloria Gaynor headlined Sunday’s  Hackensack University Medical Center's fifth annual Celebrating Life and Liberty event at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. The event is organized by the John Theurer Cancer Center at the hospital.

In addition to the Queen of Disco and the "YMCA" performers, Quixotic, an ensemble that brings together music, performance art, and aerial choreography, also took the stage.

Were/are you a disco fan? What’s your favorite disco band? Discuss below.
