Today: Watch the students rebel at a Jesus & Mary Chain gig at the North London Polytechnic on March 15, 1985.
The Jesus & Mary Chain were renowned at the time for rioting that occurred at shows, but this was by far the biggest and costliest.
An estimated £8000 worth of damage was caused, and the riot has gone down in Mary Chain history.
The band fronted by Jim and William Reid have just announced that The Jesus & Mary Chain will play their first show in nine years, at Californian rock festival Coachella, this May.
