- What's the most controversial band you've ever seen live?
My mates band – F.O.A.D. (**** off and Die) in Southport in 1987
They did a cover of Roll Over Beetoven but replaced just one word with Zebrugge
It didn't go down well being a few days after the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster.
it was their first song and they got two lines in before the manager pulled the plug, literally.Posted 8 years agoDezBSubscriber
Beastie Boys with women in cages. On the tour where they got in trouble for offending the disabled in some way.
Bodycount… "Mr & Mrs, be nice to each other"… controversial!!
!!! (or chk chk chk) were pretty controversial in Brighton recently when the singer got carried away and dropped his pants. Dancing around with your knob out is frowned upon in some circles. Great band though 🙂Posted 8 years agoKunstlerMember
I'm not sure I want to remember any part of the experience – I might attempt describe it if the thread is here tomorrow morning or perhaps any other similarly traumatised Edinburghers who were at the Bongo Club when Costes came to town might explain it for me. I feel ill just thinking about it.Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
About the only one that could be called controversial would be Wayne (later Jayne) County and The Electric Chairs at Reading, somewhen in the Eighties. A very muddy gig, Wayne got halfway through the second song, 'If You Dont Wanna **** Me, **** Off', when the storm of clods of mud, bottles and cans drove them off stage, while roadies dragged plastic sheets over the Doobie Bros kit to protect it. Took them half an hour to shovel the mess off the stage. I thought it was hilarious, the band were bloody awful.Posted 8 years agobarnsleymitchMember
Skrewdriver. In my defence, they were supporting another band that I'd gone to see (too long ago to remember). Oh dear – they had 'interesting' political views 😕Posted 8 years ago
Saw the Pistols a couple of times as well – once in 76 and later when they reformed (think it was the Phoenix festival). It has to be said, they were more listenable the second time around, though not nearly as exciting.
