Default Worst Live Act You Had to Sit Through

For me, I've been subjected to a myriad of unbelievably ****ty local and regional acts, so I won't bother you with an extensive list.

However these are the national acts that I've witnessed that either bored the shit out of me or made me cringe:

1. From First to Last (they opened for Bad Religion, a travesty)
2. As I Lay Dying
3. Poison the Well (I actually nodded out a few times.)


Your turn.

I've only been to two concerts in my life, both of them were at some club in Beale Street, the first time was to see Saliva, which I actually enjoyed, even though I think they're a horrible band, they were good showmen, and there was a drunk guy there who was hilarious.

The second time it was to see Senses Fail and it was the most unpleasant experience of my life, I didn't like their music to begin with but it was a small club and the loudness was excruciating. My ears were ringing and I got a sore throat. And I was just standing there, feeling totally helpless for like 3 hours.

In addition to that, there was the mosh pits and hardcore dancing, douchebags slamming into me, the ungodly smell of booze, cigarettes and vomit, gay guys hitting on me, a high concentration of emo scenesters and my ex stepdad who is a drunken assh*le.

The only thing that made it worthwhile was when my brother got thrown out for tossing a pair of granny panties at the lead singer.

Haha boo boo, that is awesome.

I haven't been to any bad live shows myself, but that would be because the only concert I've ever seen is Bob Dylan and he was fantastic.

Poison the Well was very hard to sit through!


My top two:
1. Local deathcore band 'A'
2. Local deathcore band 'B'


UnderOATH was very hard to sit through, but it was cool to see Aaron Gillespie and watch the guitarists spit onto their audience members through sweaty beards.

From what I've heard from their fans, they're great live. But if you don't like them, then I guess that makes sense.

Haha.

"From what I've heard from their fans, they're great live."
Tautology of the year.

No, I don't like them, but even if I was a fan I wouldn't want to get spit on.
I'm not lying.
There was some nasty sweaty spitting going on.
A mixture of sweat and spit.
Not pleasant.

Edit: And it was purposeful, just to make that clear. Like some superiority complex.

Well, it's not like all bands are good live. Dragonforce has fans don't they?

And see, I'm not a fan of Sum 41 but I'd go see them play because they perform well.

A Rock Band Competition that was the opening for a Vancouver favorite The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. It was pretty brutal, I mean you could really only judge the vocals but god damn. I smoked a joint and had a beer right before and that couldn't even make it enjoyable.

Aside from friends' crappy high school punk bands when I was a teenager, the worst live act I've seen by far was Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. At least those high school kids had the excuse of being... well... in high school. The music vets in Ringo's band had no excuse for sucking so hard.
