What's the worst live band you've ever seen. My vote would go to Brownsville Station.
They opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1974. I actually felt sorry for them. People throwing stuff at them.
It can be an opening band also.

Deep Purple, right after Blackmore left. Backed up by Nazareth (who were ok) - loudest, most distorted concert ever. Half of the crowd left half way through the show - they played Smoke on the Water for 5 minutes before anybody recognized what it was.

I have never seen so many people streaming out in the middle of a show - and not just for beer - heading for home.

1979 a punk band from Texas called the Warewolves. Fortunately it was only a buck to get in. They had a guitarist that looked like a miniture Keith Richards .

The Wallflowers. Hofstra Univeristy, 1997 or 98. It was God awful. Same thing, people leaving in the middle of the show, including myself and my friends. It was like 5 wax statues of the band on stage, with the cd playing on a stereo behind them.

Honorable Mention - Buddy Guy. I love the man's music w/ a passion, but I hated his show. He just goofed around too much. He stopped abruptly in the middle of songs, start laughing and then tell a story, then play for another 30 seconds, then stop again, laugh, tell a story, and that went on and on. He did get serious for a few tunes, and he was amazing. I wish he would've done that all the way through.

I've been to a few really bad shows:

The Black Crowes at The Horde festival back in '95. Chris Robinson was obviously high and played with his back to the stage and really stunk the joint up. i was really disappointed.

Also, i saw The Moody Blues a few years back; they sounded awful.

Marylin Manson. he stuck his thumb right up his butt right in front of me. *shivers* ick.

i guess i should count the Phish show i saw that i got overly wasted at....turns out that I had just a little TOO much fun in the parking lot and the husband had to follow a trail of sawdust to find me in the bathroom. Not my finest hour, and for some reason i always held that against Phish

Nothing beats this one.....

Public Image Limited about 15 years ago. They started playing behind a thick black curtain that usually opens when the band comes on. They refused to open the curtain. When people started a rukus after about 7 songs; John Lydon sticks his head out and says "F**k you all. you are not punk enough.....Show is over !!!! "

I would not pick Buddy Guy myselves but what you just have written is exactly the way i felt when i saw him a few year's ago. Some year's before that he did a far better performance. But that first time (at a big outdoor concert in front of at least 15.000 people gathered on a beautiful and historic square in the city Leuven, Belgium) i was the same as you saw him. He stopped in mid song a few times "you don't like this?" , "You wanna hear Jimi hendrix?" etc. etc.
it was not a gimmick or part of his show routine but he really was pissed of at the audience or the organizers (although the audience was really digging him at first).

Well, a few bands come to mind as "worst ever". Most of whom happened to play at festivals were i went just for the fun of it or to see other bands.

WASP a metal band that was supporting act for Iron Maiden back in 1986 / '87 was really obnoxious. they hardly touched their instruments and were more keen on "shocking" the audience by eating raw meat and biting on blood capsules. Really sad.

And last summer there were the Murderdolls.....
A spin-off from Slipknot i was told (and warned for that matter).
They played at a metal festival (also in Belgium) and all the singer (if you could call him that) could do is was screaming "can you say "fuck" for me, Belgium? Please, scream "Fuck" and then (ten minute later) the same routine with "Motherfucker".
Give me a break.

The Grateful Dead. 1978...somewhere in Fla. They played 1 song for an hour.

I think Jerry took a nap during the senseless, out of tune, boring jam.

The whole show was uninspired. Totally dead.

It was torture.

#1 - Neil Young and Crazy Horse at Polaris Amp. in Columbus summer of '97. Got busted before the show in the lot and all my goodies confiscated by a fat, mullet-havin' gestapo biatch who thought she was some kind of Vice patrol or something. I spent all the money I earned that summer on lawyers fees. Neil appropriately closed the show early with " Piece of Crap". It was fitting...

#2 - Phish in Cincinnati 94 or 95. Caught a ride with two dorkuses from my school who were only going cuz... well...I have no idea why they wanted to go but they were a drag and they didn't boogie or wanna stand up at all. They just sat there and made fun of all the heads. Then the fire alarm went off and all the lights came on right in the middle of a song. The whole place had to be evacuated. It pretty much sucked...

The Doobie/Skynyrd show wasnt in Denver at Fiddlers Green, was it? Because that show was bad also. Both bands.

Linnie...too damn funny...I almost spit my beer on my computer screen

Worst show? The Cranberries at Woodstock '94. And a couple of years ago this band that opened for Govt Mule in Philly called Town Hall...they sucked big time.
