15 Keith Moon Keith Moon
16 Courtney Love Courtney Love

I don’t necessarily believe that she hired a hit man on Kurt Cobain, but I still think she’s an awful human being. She is constantly trash talking Dave Grohl and I’m sure we’ve all seen the video of her insulting the nicest man in rock. I believe I’ve heard that she did heroin while pregnant too. - HardRockSam

17 Fred Durst Fred Durst William Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

Becouse he is a douchebag - emilk

Allegedly, Vicious stabbed his girl friend Nancy. There is a lot of conspiracy about this one, but once he got out of jail, Sid committed suicide by overdosing on heroin. The true answer to the question can therefore, never be answered. I personally thing he did it though. Drugs make you do crazy things and you are bound to do bad things when you wear a shirt with a swastika on it. Maybe it was an accident, I don’t know to be honest. - HardRockSam

His ego is bigger than the Milky Way. Besides, he's very authoritarian - his dictatorship ruined many good things in his own band and he lost many great band members. Also, he is known for not being a very generous employer. - Metal_Treasure
