Top Ten Shocking Music Moments

The Top Ten
1 John Lennon's Assassination

There will never be another John Lennon, and that's all I have to say about that.

Lennon's influence was far beyond music. Truly a citizen of the Earth.

He do a lot of controversial things in his life. Think before you talk.

How is a clearly self distructive popstars overdoas more shocking then one of the greatest musicians of all time being shot dead by a nut job. Saddest moment too

2 Michael Jackson's Death

Wasn't expecting it in the slightest. Came as a huge shock.

My BFF waited 6 hours in line juss 4 The This is it concert... and well... bam he died

He was a great singer

Nobody saw it coming

3 Kurt Cobain Committing Suicide

Amazing artist who was distinguished in his prime... Sadly, by himself. But he leaves behind truly monumental and timeless music.

When kurt cobain commit suicide the 90s rock was silence. when kurt cobain did not suicide NIRVANA was the best rock band ever!

There were some people who killed themselves too over this. Was a major moment in music.

4 The Death of Freddie Mercury

Surprised this isn't Top 5 at the very least.

5 The Notorious B.I.G.'s Death
6 Cliff Burton's Death

I feel like this should be higher than Taylor Swift's VMA speech being interrupted as stupid as it was no one died or was injured.

Thinking what difference would have been made in the legacy that Metallica have made and the level that he would have taken the genre of heavy/thrash metal sends chills down my spine. If he was alive, he would possibly have been one of the best songwriters of today. On that tragic day the heavy metal genre(the whole art of music in general) had lost a priceless Jewel before he could even reach the pinnacle of his song writing.

Who cares about Lil Wayne in jail. He put himself into that situation anyway.

14 Fantasia Tries to Commit Suicide
15 Bon Scott's Death
