St. Louis Sound is a new 6,000-square-foot special exhibit at the Missouri History Museum that explores the history of popular music in St. Louis from the dawn of recorded sound in the late 1800s to the turn of the 21st century. Nearly 200 artifacts will be on display from national stars, local legends, and important venues.

“St. Louis Sound” also covers important music events, including the most famous rock riot in St. Louis history — a 1991 Guns n’ Roses concert at the newly-opened Riverport Amphitheater.

Axel Rose saw someone in the crowd taking pictures of him, decided he didn’t like it, and jumped out and started pummeling the guy,” said Wanko. “It turned into a giant riot that caused more than $200,000 worth of damage. Axel Rose swore they would never play St. Louis again. He wore a ‘St. Louis Sucks’ T-shirt for the rest of their tour dates.”

Guns n’ Roses did end up playing St. Louis again in 2017. But for those who prefer to dwell on the past, there’s a piece of a seat stolen during the riot, as well as an “I Survived the Jungle” T-shirt once sold by the amphitheater to commemorate the event.
