Top Ten Music Artists With the Craziest Concerts

Was there ever a concert for a band that you went to, and you were like "woah this is crazy". Well that's what I'm countin down today. These are the top ten bands and artists with insane, elaborate, violent, and totally unpredictable actions when they perform live.

The Top Ten

1 GG Allin GG Allin Kevin Michael "GG" Allin (born Jesus Christ Allin; 1956-1993) was an American singer, songwriter and record producer, who performed and recorded with many groups during his career. He was best known for his graphic live performances which included self-mutilation, parading around the stage naked, fighting more.

He makes Marilyn Manson look like a monk.

There's no other eay to put this, GG Allin was a lunatic. I would put a picture of him up on this site, but it would most likely get reported and flagged since most of his photos he's either bleeding all over the place, showing off his explicit tattoos ("Life Sucks Scum F***, F*** you with a drawing of a middle finger under it), or naked and harassing a fan at the concert. Allin would wear nothing but underwear or sometimes nothing at all as he sang for his Hardcore Punk band, but no matter the band concert, GG Allin would always be fighting ruthlessly with fans weather the liked it or not. Allin promised his fans that he would commit suicide live onstage at one of his concerts, but he died offstage from a drug overdose in 1993. GG Allin is the definition of hardcore, and that's the way he liked it. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Nirvana's concerts were quite... interesting...(? ) They almost always trash their set of drums, guitars, amps, plug in fans, basses, and surroundings at the end of their concerts (probably not Unplugged in New York though lol). Kurt Cobain broke his wrist by diving in Grohl's drum set 3 times at one concert. At the Paramount Theater in 1991, Kurt ended with "Endless, Nameless" (the only time they played it live, since the concert on Halloween) by being running around in circles, being wrapped around in his own guitar cord, falling onto the floor and countined strumming the guitar rapidly as well as spinning on circles on the stage floor. Meanwhile, Dave is banging on his drums and Krist is smashing his bass. Kurt gets up and destroys a small fan with his guitar, then smashes it until the - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

He performed a sex act with a fan onstage one time.

Imagine that Katy Perry's SBHS took a load of cocaine, changed the wardrobe to something out of your worst nightmare, and replaced Katy Perry with a sepressed Kevin Arnold that screams a lot. Congrats, you have Marilyn Manson's concerts. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
