Worst Live Band ever seen?

#1
"Stray Dog" (USA) same bill as Steeleye Span, Mannfred Manns Earth Band, Electric Light Orhestra (unexpectedly brilliant) Yes and a whole host of others at Easter Weekend Festival, Westfallenhalle, Dortmund 1973. Stray Dog did 3 or 4 aweful numbers when the crowd started chanting to bring MM's EB back on! SD took the hint and fcuked off early giving time for a toilet and beer run!

Screaming Blue Messiahs who were supporting David Bowie (Glass Spider tour) at Cardiff Arms Park 1989?, when they finished 80,000 people just stood and looked at them!

They were so bad that Big Country were the next supporting act and the crowd were so pleased to see them it was pathetic :)

The live band that played at the funeral of my grandmother collectivley wrecked the day and spoilt the service.

I would recommend no one use Metallica for the funerals of the elderly

Red Hot Chillies Reading '07

Everything that could go wrong went wrong, guitar cut out, set list wasn't followed, singer walked off stage, crap sound, no fast songs. Really peed me off.

Meatloaf. That fat cunt cannot sing live, and he started losing his voice and was weazy after about 20 minutes.
Saw him in Newcastle not so long ago.
Couldn't tell what he was singing most of the time and he even confessed toward the end of the show he had forgotten where in the song he was when singing Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

I saw him at Sheffield this year and I have to say he was very good and there were no problems with it what so ever.

Mungo Jerry at the Wildenrath NAAFI 1987.

He was so off his face, he couldn't even remember the words to his only hit. Y'know that one that goes "Riding along on my pushbike baby..." Truly a tribute to the powers of cannabis.

By great fortune (For Mr. Jerry) the NAAFI manger had replaced the glasses with plastics and thus Ol' Mungo didn't die in a hail of glass fragments he just got pish wet through...

The supporting band to Crowded House in Pompey about 12 years ago was an American trio who were so memorable that I've forgotten their name! But trust me, they must have broken up by now, they were sh1te!

Agreed! Absolute b0ll0cks live...which is a shame, because the album (that's showing my age) was pretty good.

Way back in the mist of times, Generation X played th La Babalu [now sadly demolished and re-born as a McDee's] on the Isle of Wight.

They were BAD BAD BAD, Billy Idol was singing one song and the band were playing something different. The highlight was when Billy Idol swung the mike stand round in the air, whacked the guitar player who then collapsed into the drum kit totally demolishing it... cue loads of cheering from a very disillusioned audience.

Surprised at your comments about the Fratellis, they played the IOW festival this year and went down a storm! perhaps it was an off night.

Third Ear Band - amazingly poor

Not quite a band but live nonetheless. Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf) in Colchester Arts Centre about five years ago. Fcuking awful. We walked out after 20 mins and got spannered instead.

Small group called inhuman bridal convulsions, supporting Napalm Death - so bad that the audience actually had to tell them to turn one of the guitars on....

after that, a wierd ensemble called Ladytron, who only had lighting on the three girls in the band, as the two blokes really didnt fit the image, bad beyond belief!
