Top Ten Shocking Music Moments

The Top TenXW

1John Lennon's Assassination


There will never be another John Lennon, and that's all I have to say about that.

Lennon's influence was far beyond music. Truly a citizen of the Earth.

My BFF waited 6 hours in line juss 4 The This is it concert... and well... bam he died - SmoothCriminal

Wasn't expecting it in the slightest. Came as a huge shock.

Laugh out loud How is this not number one, that's odd

If it wasn't 4 this, I wouldn't be a MJ fan... MICHAEL JACKSON FOREVER - SmoothCriminal

3Kurt Cobain Commited Suicide

Amazing artist who was distinguished in his prime... Sadly, by himself. But he leaves behind truly monumental and timeless music.

There were some people who killed themselves too over this. Was a major moment in music. - VADERtheIMPALER

9Cliff Burton's Death

Thinking what difference would have been made in the legacy that Metallica have made and the level that he would have taken the genre of heavy/thrash metal sends chills down my spine. If he was alive, he would possibly have been one of the best songwriters of today. On that tragic day the heavy metal genre(the whole art of music in general) had lost a priceless Jewel before he could even reach the pinnacle of his song writing.

10Lil Kim & Nicki Minaj Beef

I'm gonna be honest, if this feud didn't exist, then Stupid Hoe wouldn't exist.
