During the late-1980s Rock Against Racism held numerous concerts in Central Park.  "The city received numerous complaints about excessive noise at RAR's concerts from users of the nearby Sheep Meadow, an area designated by the city for passive recreation, from other users of the park, and from residents of areas adjacent to the park. Moreover, when the city shut off the power after RAR ignored repeated requests to lower the volume at one of its concerts, the audience became abusive and disruptive." After repeatedly ignoring the city's noise and union ordinances lawsuits were brought against Rock Against Racism.
