Top 10 Most Extreme Things Musicians Have Done on Stage
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.
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.)
That's really dangerous.
That's actually cool.
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.
That poor bat.
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.
He has many scars on his chest - a result of frequent self-mutilation.
Well, that's unhealthy.
An audience is not your litter box.
Now, no one wants that.
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.
It's appropriate. I consider Jim to be the sexiest guy ever.
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.
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 strange thing is, there were volunteers, and oral sex on him onstage actually happened.
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.
Everyone's dream brother, ladies and gentlemen.
That's the Gallagher brothers for you.
Ah, the lovely bros.
A repugnant thing to do to a musical instrument!
Probably the most famous moment on this list.
Legendary moment, actually.
That's disgusting, but I bet he was a better singer than Iggy Pop!
The poop was more talented than her, I bet.
I can't stop laughing!
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.
Extreme? Yes. Was it done by a musician? Probably not.
It's Miley. What do you expect?
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.
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."
So he got high during live shows?
Lady Gaga's "vomit artist" is a 27-year-old woman.
Wow, that's gross.
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 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.
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.
