Worst Band Photos. Ever.
« on: October 05, 2005, 05:41:47 PM »
From Brian Satterfield's CNet Blog:

Occasionally, I like to take a break from talking about music-industry greed, the latest round of P2P-related lawsuits, and audio-software developments to point out stuff that's just plain funny. Recently, I rediscovered a site that has had me spraying Gatorade out of my nose and onto my monitor at least twice a day. It's called Rock And Roll Confidential, and it features a collection of some of the most embarrassing and ill-advised band photographs known to man. All the clich├ęs are present, from shirtless, smoking hard-rockers to pretty boys with feathered hair and white gowns. By themselves, the photos say a thousand words, but I think it's the site owner's childish yet remarkably on-point commentary that seals the deal. I guarantee that a trip to this site will cause your work productivity to plummet.

Editor's note/warning: The aforementioned site contains profanity, slang, sexual innuendo, and general mean-spiritedness. If any of those things bother you, please do not click the above link.

Hmmm ... must be a US thing, I don't seem to know many of the bands on 'show'.

Some truly bad photography though!

For really BAD pictures you still can't beat some of Freddie Mercury's early photos (and I am a dedicated fan of all things Freddie!).

i don't think we are meant to recognize the bands (i know i don't); i think they are like pictures of unknown local bands and stuff.

Yea, most of those photos come from flyers posted around campuses or in pubs here.

Ah, maybe I'm not as ignorant as I thought then  :-[
