The Top Ten

1 I might go and kick somebody in the head, I might grab a girl and force her to perform oral sex with me. I've had sex on stage with men, women and animals and everything in between - GG Allin

When he was jailed, he said the government was trying to kill the rock spirit.

He said this in an interview on the "Jerry Springer show".

What a pervert!

Oh wow

2 Christianity is a diagnosis. It’s like Islam and the other Asian religions, a HIV/AIDS of the spirit and mind - Varg Vikernes

He took his Atheism/thought too far, but I do understand his point.

One of his infamous quotes on Facebook

What's wrong? He is damn right.

I wuv you Vargy to be honest follow him on his socials please

3 The Beatles are more popular than Jesus now - John Lennon

He said this during an interview with London newspaper "Evening Standard". This particular comment created an enormous amount of controversy in the US especially among Christian communities. Extensive protests broke out in the US, Some radio stations stopped playing Beatles songs, their records were publicly burned, press conferences were cancelled, and threats were made. Finally, he was
murdered in December 1980 by Mark David Chapman, a born-again Christian who was incensed by the "more popular than Jesus" remark.

Nobody will ever be more popular than Jesus.

He was making an observation that in the mainstream culture at that time, people were paying much more attention to The Beatles and celebrity worship than to Jesus. He wasn't saying it to brag, or meaning that it was a good or proper trend.

LMAO this made me laugh

4 There is nothing which is too sick, evil or perverted. I have no problem with killing someone in cold blood - Euronymous

He's dead now so no need to worry about this

5 When you hear about slavery for 400 years... for 400 years? That sounds like a choice - Kanye West

I still can't even begin to comprehend what he was thinking here.

Yo Kanye, Imma Let You Finish, But that is nothing to joke about.

6 If I kill you, I’ll be part of the KKK, but there’ll be one less lonely n----r - Justin Bieber

It's no surprise that his fans are terrible, since they constantly defend any of the very stupid things that he done. Most of his fans wouldn't even try to defend him if he wasn't a musician. It's pretty dumb to even call him a musician.

That one time where he almost got away with the n-word. Viral video clip available on the TMZ channel of YouTube

Wait, does he like the KKK?

7 I think boobs are very empowering, and signing them is even more empowering - Nicki Minaj

She said this in an interview when asked about Women Empowerment

8 Bring me the head of Elton John... which is one instance in which meat would not be murder, if it were served on a plate - Morrissey

*clear throat* excuse me pal?!

9 I believe very strongly in fascism... Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars - David Bowie

In the 70's David Bowie had a history of praising Adolf Hitler. He later blamed being under the influence of drugs for making this comment.

He was probably trying to rustle a bunch of people

10 I see a lot of people with their clothes on and they're kind of a**holes. When you've got your t*** out you can't really be an a**hole - Miley Cyrus

She said this in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel expressing her support for #freethenipple campaign. The campaign advocates that women should have the right to project their nipples in public.

Sure, that's logical (sarcasm)

The Contenders

11 Is Math related to Science? - Katy Perry

LOL, this one falls in the category "dumb comments", too

That made me die on the floor laughing

She asked this during an interview with Neil degrasse Tyson

Yes Katy. Math is related to science

12 "I hope the pair of them catch AIDS and die because I f****** hate those two" - Noel Gallagher

He was specifically referring to his rivals, Blur's Damon Albarn and Alex James when he made this comment. He almost immediately apologized, later claimed that the journalist who interviewed him set him up, and eventually made peace with Damon Albarn, but the damage was already done. From then on, Noel Gallagher would forever be known for his big mouth.

13 Church burnings are, of course, a thing that I support one hundred percent. It should have been done much more, and will be done much more in the future... - Gaahl

Yes, the great Gaahl, you are 100% right. Religion will be outlawed except for satanism. HAIL SATAN! (This is a joke, do not report)

The angst is strong with this one.LMAO seriously what is it with all these Black Metal musicians being in their adult years and still acting like angsty teens.And this is coming from a Hindu who is bit of an Agnostic too.

14 The smell of burning animals is making me sick. I can smell burning flesh... and I hope to God it's human - Morrissey
15 If everybody in the world dropped out of school, then we would have an intelligent society - Jaden Smith
