After seeing J-Lo and Ja Rule doing that crappy ass live version of "Ain't it Funny" again, I was wondering, what was the worst live performance you've seen?

Well, I didn't see J-Lo/Ja' Rule live in-person, I have to say it's the worst thing I've heard/seen.

But a close 2nd is Wu Tang Clan. Nothing like eight guys standing on the edge of a stage screaming into their microphones at the same time. It was awful and I don't think I caught word one.



I RESPECT your opinion. Please respect mine. Or feel the wrath of Buddha!

J-Lo and Ja' Rule are the worst singing/rapping duo I've ever seen in my life (my response to the "totally live" performance of that annoying "Ain't it Funny" song at last year's VMA's. The show where everybody goes home happy and the winner's aren't really winners, they're just people randomly selected based upon their pop status).

A Billy Squier concert that I went to in the late 80's has to be the bottom of the barrel for me. He was so drunk he couldn't remember the words to his own songs, let alone stand up.

For worst performance??? I am not sure. Perhaps when I was forced to go see Kool and the Gang back in 1987...

Most disappointing was The Kinks. I saw them back in the 80's and the performance was word-for-word the same as their live album. I could've just stayed at home and put the album on for Pete's sake.

I saw the Wu-Tang a few months back, and thought that they were really good, but the sound at the venue was awful.

Gorillaz at the Hollywood Palladium.

Half the concert was Dan the Automator doing a mix, and nobody knew who it was or cared about it.

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien was replaces with a nobody.

The other half was almost an hour of music and little cartoon skits that anybody with a broadband connection had already seen. And the performers were all behind a screen, only casting their shadows. I know there is some kind of character being portrayed, but come on.

Sure it was all right, but the whole thing was 45 bucks with Ticketmaster charges. Everyone left with a feeling of "Was that IT?!"

Worst live show I ever saw was Fiona Apple at the Park West in Chicago. After a swank opening set by Morcheeba she proceeded to come onstage and just suck the life out of the room. She complained about a whole bunch of things, she was sick (not her fault, but did make the show even worse), and in between songs she would just kind of ramble about nothing in particular. She played for about one hour, and everyone was glad to get out at that point.

Orgy.

Their guitars were five times louder than the PA. FEEDBACK galore, so fucking crackly it made an abused vinyl sound like DTS.

And the crackheads didn't play Stitches. Bitches.

Our Lady Peace.

They were the opening act for Van Hagar/Skid Row back in 94 or 95. Absolutely the shits. My friends and I harassed the hell out of them and got most of the crowd chanting vulgar things at them and booing the hell out of them. They eventually cut their set short and left.

Oh yeah, and now in 2002 I read that they were bitching about being on an album called Forceable Entry and then proceeded to bash wrestling. Well, if they didn't want to be connected to wrestling then they shouldn't have signed on to record a song(Benoit's theme).
BTW:that song sucks and it kills the crowd. The lead singer sounds like a whiny bitch. Go back to the instrumental version please.

I took my sister to see Lifehouse and I nearly fell asleep standing up. (Of course, I went to Ozzfest last week, and Down, Drowning Pool and POD were pretty pathetic as well...)

Tough call; it was either Grant Lee Buffalo when they were opening for R.E.M. back in '95, Silverchair when they were opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers back in '96, or Alanis in '95(Thankfully during that show Radiohead opened for her and I was with four chicks, so that nummed that experience).

Filter also sucked at the 2000 HFStival.

I went to see the smashing pumpkins (at the ariel theatre here in houston) in what turned out to be their final tour. (2000 i think) I was really looking forward to a night of good music but what i ended up getting instead was Billy bitching about the offspring and the kid from the jeremy video. Oh yeah and i guess he also felt threatening a local DJ was a higher priorityt than ripping through a strong set.

Odd. I saw the Pumpkins in '96(last show before the keyboard playing decided to check out of Planet Earth) and they had a solid show.

Probably the worst one I've ever seen was Girlschool and White Lion in Indy when they were opening for Ozzy in '94 (I think). Both acts were horrible and White Lion actually got booed off the stage, the only time I've ever seen that happen in real life.
A slightly different take on this topic is the worst audience you've ever been a part of since the audience can really drag down a performance. For me, the worst audience ever was in '87 for 10000 Maniacs and REM at Purdue. The audience was utterly clueless about REM except for "The One I Love" and had even less of an idea about 10000 Maniacs. Both acts actually put on really godd shows but we left wondering what the **** had just happened.

I would have to say the worst audience was when I saw The Cramps with this group called The Bomborra's opening for them. Everyone of the people there were looking for some old school punk action, when the Bomborra's put on their show. They come out dressed as skeletions with sumbrero's and Mexican dancing girls and everyone there was just like, "Huh?" Then by the end they just started setting fire to half of the speakers and their equipment (the keyboardist had a fire going the whole time on his board). Everyone seemed to really like them, but they just didn't know what to think. It was like when Andy Kaufman was on Lettermen and you didn't know whether he was for real or not.

OlFuzzy - I agree that POD and down sucked the balls at ozzfest, but I thought Drowning Pool did a good job. I don't like them, but they put on a good enough live show for me. Their cover of Creeping death was decent as well.

I saw this band Ash open up for Unwritten Law at a Free show, they were pretty bad. Crazy town sucked it up at Ozzfest a couple years ago too. Booed off the stage, thank god!

What year was that? I remember their first year, Crazy Town got le boot after five shows, out of which they missed two. The next year, Butterfly was blowing up and they weren't doing anything, so they got stuck playing at, like, noon, IIRC. Everyone there, from fans to bands, HATED them.

I believe it was 2001, but I'm not totally sure.

I saw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live at my local Triple-A stadium way back in the day. Boy, did that suck. The mouths didn't even move on the damn Turtle suits! Come on!

Ash used to be really good until they did the soundtrack for "A Life Less Ordinary". They added a female guitarist and the when from a decent melodic punk band to a bunch of pussies.

There was an incident at the Reading Festival (That is 'Red-ding", not as in looking at words. Great joke from Dave Grohl about that though) where Daphne and Celeste (!?!) filled in for a missing band on the main stage. That went down so well, they got coke bottles full of piss thrown over them.

The original version was all synthesizers and crap. The new version (the one that I own) has all live instruments, and it kicks butt!!! Everyone should go out and get it. It is the feel good album of the century!
