Top 10 Most Extreme Things Musicians Have Done on Stage

The Top Ten
1 GG Allin cut himself and ate his own feces

His birth name was Jesus Christ Allin. I'm not kidding.

He is probably the craziest musician ever. He used laxatives before gigs so he could have enough fecal matter all over the stage. He also covered himself in his own feces, attacked people in the crowd, and did some other extreme things.

The hell? That's disturbing, but you've got to commend him for his bravery.

Wow. I can't believe he has the guts to do this. What a crazy man.

2 Keith Moon placed pyrotechnics in his bass drum to cause explosions

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's drummer.)

3 Ozzy Osbourne bit off a bat's head

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.

Ozzy's done all the drugs and seven others humans don't know about yet.

4 Iggy Pop attempted to entice someone in the audience to stab him but failed and sliced an X into his chest

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.

Why? Why are these people doing this? Good list though.

5 Iggy Pop rolled around on shards of glass and regularly vomited on stage

He has many scars on his chest - a result of frequent self-mutilation.

6 Greg Puciato defecated into a bag and threw it into the crowd

An audience is not your litter box.

7 Lord Worm consumed worms

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. The lyrics just show Lord Worm is Canadian after all.

8 Jim Morrison was arrested for exposing himself

It's appropriate. I consider Jim to be the sexiest guy ever.

9 Marilyn Manson urinated on the audience

He's crazy, but I love him. I mean, doesn't musical talent come before crazy stage gimmicks anyway?

For me, he has always been Alice Cooper Jr., a pale copy of Alice Cooper, though.

But at least it was Marilyn Manson's. It means good luck.

10 Red Hot Chili Peppers performed entire shows wearing only socks

I don't like the band, but wow, that takes a lot of guts and confidence to do.

Flea even got arrested for obscenity.

The Contenders
11 GG Allin encouraged audience members to perform oral sex on him onstage

The strange thing is, there were volunteers, and oral sex on him onstage actually happened.

12 Alice Cooper paraded with a live boa constrictor around his shoulders

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.

13 Gerard Way masturbated on stage
14 Liam Gallagher struck his own brother on the head with his tambourine

Everyone's dream brother, ladies and gentlemen.

That's the Gallagher brothers for you.

Yep, sounds about right. And he was voted as the best frontman in 2010.

15 Jimi Hendrix set his guitar on fire

A repugnant thing to do to a musical instrument!

Probably the most famous moment on this list.

16 Iggy Pop exposed himself and placed his penis on a speaker

That's disgusting, but I bet he was a better singer than Iggy Pop!

17 Nicki Minaj defecated in her pants on stage

The poop was more talented than her, I bet.

18 Alice Cooper impaled baby dolls on shiny swords

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.

19 Miley Cyrus simulated sex with an inflatable doll

Extreme? Yes. Was it done by a musician? Probably not.

20 Marilyn Manson cut himself on stage and assaulted band members

It's the struggle of only being able to play drums, and ending up like this is unlucky.

All the more reason to favor solo careers.

Honestly, everyone here betrayed me.

21 Neil Young concealed cocaine in his nostrils during live shows

Once he performed with a good-sized 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 on 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 a booger in his nose. Can you fix it?" After a few days, the company responded, saying, "We've invented a traveling booger matte."

22 Lady Gaga had someone vomit green milk on her

Lady Gaga's "vomit artist" is a 27-year-old woman.

23 Jimmy Pop vomited after inserting a banana into his throat

Maybe he was trying to sing with the banana because the banana was better than the microphone.

24 Kollegah kicked a fan who tried to steal his sunglasses

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 not have done this. Kollegah pushed him back, then kicked him, and then punched him. After that, 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 had happened. Kollegah was later fined 18,000 euros. He's a great rapper, but that was unnecessary. It would have been enough to ask him to leave.

25 Tommy Rogers of Between the Buried and Me mooned the audience on a $100 bet

He goes on and says that guitarist Paul Waggoner refused to give him the money and instead paid it back in 50 installments of $2 in the form of coffee.
