Most Extreme Things Musicians Have Done on Stage
The Top Ten
How did he not get taken to a mental hospital? - RiverVibeZ
I just wish I never read this.
Wow. I can’t believe he has the guts to do this. What a crazy man. - JoeBoi
What? Oh wow, I bet his fans did not enjoy that!
That's actually cool. - RiverVibeZ
That would be interesting to see. - Catacorn
But before a show he added too much pyro which caused a larger explosion than intended, and left band members with permanent hearing damage and shrapnel wounds.
Obviously this is too extreme (Keith Moon was The Who drummer) - Metal_Treasure
In 1982, someone threw a bat on stage, Ozzy picked it up and bit its head off. Ozzy said he thought it was a fake one. - Metal_Treasure
That poor bat. - Catacorn
He was hungry...
Interesting! - Kevinsidis
In the image he holds a knife in his left hand - he just made one cut and is ready to make the next one.
Before that he shouted racist insults, trying to provoke a black person in the audience to stab him. - Metal_Treasure
Why? Why are these people doing this? Good list though.
He has many scars on his chest - a result of frequent self-mutilation - Metal_Treasure
Well that’s unhealthy.
Now, no one wants that.
An audience =/= Your litter box - SpectralOwl
This explains Dan Greening's nickname but if you think he's a complete savage you are wrong - he's the only one in metal who wrote song lyrics that start with "Pardon, please". The song is "Slit Your Guts" by Cryptopsy, one of the most brutal death metal songs of all time. Lyrics just show Lord Worm is Canadian after all ;-) - Metal_Treasure
It's appropriate, I consider Jim to be the sexiest guy ever. - Crwth
@Crwth - haha, I have no experience with his penis so I would gladly leave his penis to those of you who appreciated it. - Metal_Treasure
Nasty! - Userguy44
I feel bad for the crowd... - Catacorn
Another reason not to go see him - EliHbk
But at least it was Marilyn Manson's. It means good luck.
I don't like the band but wow, that takes a lot of guts and confidence to do. - RiverVibeZ
I would lmao if was a part of the crowd there! - Userguy44
Flea even got arrested for obscenity. - Metal_Treasure
Oof penis city
Strange thing is, there were volunteers and oral sex on him onstage actually happened - Metal_Treasure
That's awesome. - RiverVibeZ
That's extreme but unlike some other extreme guys on this list, what he did had potential risks and took guts. That's why I have respect for Alice Cooper and not so much for some other musicians. - Metal_Treasure
That’s amazing! I think this guy is more brave than stupid - IceBearRules
Not to mention, he gropes himself, moans in front of everyone, and kisses his fellow band members. - Catacorn
EW... Poor crowd that had to see that. #notsexy - Thelistmaker
I guess the things he did were part of the shock rock theatrics. He also had a working guillotine on stage and a live boa constrictor around his shoulders. - Metal_Treasure
Ah...the lovely bros - Metal_Treasure
Ah, yes the brothers which don't get along in any way what so ever.
Everyone's dream brother ladies and gentelmen
Yet he was voted the greatest frontman of all time by Q magazine
Lady Gaga's "vomit artist" is a 27 yo woman - Metal_Treasure
Wow... that’s gross.
Huh? - RiverVibeZ
How does he have the guts to do that? Why would you do that when u can’t get it back on? How does he pee/urinate - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
That's disgusting, but I bet it was a better singer than Iggy Pop!
Iggy Pop.More like Iggy Penis.-DarkBoi-X
Why? - Userguy44
All the more reason to favour solo careers. - PositronWildhawk
It's the struggles of only being able to play drums and ending up like this is unlucky - SpectralOwl
Honestly everyone here betrayed me.
Legend! - Userguy44
A repugnant thing to do to a musical instrument! - Crwth
The glorious moment of rock which made Jimi Hendrix instantly popular than the rolling stones which that is his goal.- Kevinsidis
Yes! - EliHbk
Maybe he was trying to sing with the banana because the banana was better than the microphone
Kollegah invited fans to come to the stage for a rap battle. However, this guy had in mind to rip Kollegah's sunglasses off during his performance. He better wouldn't have done this. Kollegah pushed him back, then kicked him and then punched him. Then Kollegah's bodyguards came, punched him so hard that he fell down and almost off the stage, before they dragged him away. Then Kollegah continued the performance as if nothing happened. Kollegah was later fined 18000 euros. He's a great rapper, but that was unnecessary. It would have been enough to ask him to leave. - Martin_Canine
MY SUNNIES! MINE!
What mooned mean? - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
He goes on and says that guitarist Paul Waggoner refused to give him the money and instead payed it back in 50 installments of $2 in the form of coffee - kempokid
oh dear - Metal_Treasure
The poop was more talented than her I bet
I can't stop laughing! - Userguy44
What - SpectralOwl
You can call it a waste of money, but this is what the adrenaline does with you. - Userguy44
That's what I call a waste of money.
Ritchie Blackmore explained (that he actually had no explanation for doing it):
"Sometimes I feel like I own the stage completely on my own for an hour. I’m just going crazy. The adrenaline is so much that all my musical upbringing is thrown into intensity on stage rather than being a musician.
After 22 years of playing, it goes instead into a mood and comes out as an aggressive bulldozer. I don’t know why; I often wonder why. I’m not an aggressive person offstage; I don’t know why I am on." - Metal_Treasure
Well, there you go my folks. That’s what happens when you are unattractive - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
Extreme? Yes. Was it done by a musician? Probably not - SpectralOwl
Its miley what do you expect?
I really don't see anything wrong with this.
So he got high during live shows? - Skullkid755
Once he performed with a good-size rock of cocaine in his nostril. "There was a rock of cocaine falling out of his nostril", Jonathan Taplin remembered.
The live show was recorded to become a film but Neil Young's manager was horrified when he saw the cocaine booger and the singer's face. Jonathan Taplin, the film's executive producer, called a special effects company to fix it and told them: "This guy has got a booger in his nose, can you fix it? " After a few days the company responded, saying, "We've invented a travelling booger matte." - Metal_Treasure
Daron's literally insane though... - Catacorn
I think he is on drugs a lot. - Userguy44
WHY THE MOONING?
That's just rudr
That's offensive. What did us americans ever do to you?
Les Claypool would just have ranted for three minutes. Like "hey man, I'm doing my job, let me do my job, I don't throw bottles at you while you're flipping the burgers in McDonald's" (he actually told that to a guy that threw a bottle at him). - JoLeKosovo
What a wimp. - Userguy44
And Marilyn Manson threw a bottle back at someone who threw a bottle at him. This shows that Justin Bieber is a wimp.
But if Justin Bieber threw the bottle back, you would be still complaining of how "rude" he is. - AlphaQ
This subsequently melted down his face and made him look like "a guttered candle". Rumor has it, there were crushed Mandrax tranquilizer tablets in the mix but Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason disputed the Mandrax portion of the story, stating that "Syd would never waste good mandies".
Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd was a frequent user of psychedelic drugs, most prominently LSD. - Metal_Treasure
�So you peed on him? ” -Diary Of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
Depending on the country, this may be illegal. Which is stupid if you ask me - if it's a free country you must also be allowed to insult the nation symbolically. - Martin_Canine
That's so disrespectful.
That's a little (a lot) disturbing - Thelistmaker
Welcome to shock rock. - Userguy44
That’s not good for your fans’ eyes.
He held his microphone in his mouth. - JoLeKosovo
