It's been 18 years since a Dave Matthews Band tour bus dumped 800 pounds of poop on people on a tour boat under the Kinzie Street Bridge in Chicago.
On Aug. 8, 2004, a tour bus belonging to the band dumped the human waste – the equivalent of 55 gallons of sand – from the bus's septic tank onto the passenger sightseeing boat on the Chicago River below.
At the time, The Chicago Tribune reported, nobody knew who was responsible for the dumping, but the incident was later connected to the band. The band later settled with the state of Illinois after a lawsuit was filed, the outlet reported, and the driver pleaded guilty to reckless conduct and pollution charges.

18 years ago today, Slow Motion and Lean Back were No. 1. Alien vs. Predator and Spiderman 2 were in theaters. Everyone's dad was reading the DaVinci Code.
And the Dave Matthews Band dumped 800 pounds of feces onto a crowded tour boat from Chicago's Kinzie bridge.
