Four For Friday - Bad Band Behavior

Beginning Monday will be Reader Photos time. Each weekday I will post your photo in Random Photos leading up to Reveal Day on January 1st. If you want your photo posted here, then email it to entlawyer90210@yahoo.com

So, every so often I like to do a Bad Band Behavior post and as usual, these are ones I have personally witnessed.

#1 - This foreign born one named singer who should have stayed with that band we all love and hate him for leaving as well as for many other things once got angry at a venue manager and urinated all over his dressing room. It was an astonishing amount of urine and he got it everywhere. There is nothing that could probably have been saved furniture wise.

#2 - This brotherly duo who are still celebrities but, unlike two other groups that burst on the scene at the same time are not making music people want to listen to, used to have a game they played on tour. Breast Bingo. They had faceless pictures of all kinds of breasts on these poster sized bingo cards. They then would get fans to flash or let the band/crew members take photos. Whoever got matching breasts would then make a mark. The vote to allow the match had to be a majority. Sometimes the games would last one night and sometimes they would take a week.

#3 - The lead singer of this ska group which should have been two words even though they made it one and was the inspiration for probably the most famous ska band of all time which all of you know, used to carry a huge, thick, heavy wood walking stick/cane thing. One time a fan got up on stage and he took that walking stick/cane thing and jut started wailing on the guy for no reason. Just beating the crap out of him. I think people were so in shock that it took a good 30 seconds of blows before someone jumped in and stopped him.

#4 - This one named former A list heavy metal band who had their prime in the 90's were an actual metal band. Nothing that said hair metal. They were closer to death metal. Long before NXIVM did the branding thing, these guys were doing it. If they had sex with a groupie they would always want to brand her so other bands would know she had already been with someone from this band. They had a fairly successful rate. About half of the women said yes.

2)The Madden Brithees/Good Charlotte?

sandybrook said...

1-Sting

Tricia13 said...

Metallica? Or Megadeth?

Tricia13 said...

3) Fishbone?

sandybrook said...

1-one could be Morrissey except I dont think we all loved The Smiths although we all hate that POS.

Brayson87 said...

For #4, geez, weren't they all one named at that time?

Tricia13 said...

No ,I think it is Morrissey.
Known douche

sandybrook said...

3-UB40? All one word..

Tricia13 said...

Inspiration for Sublime maybe?
Loved them

sandybrook said...

4-Slayer or Megadeth.

MDAnderson said...

Definitely sublime. RIP Bradley

MDAnderson said...

Morrissey is hate inducing so I agree with it’s him.

gauloise said...

What, everyone hates Morrissey? I think i have entered a parallel universe.

sandybrook said...

I hope #4 isnt Pantera, I liked Dimebag Darrell (rip)

Krab said...

I loved the Smiths back in the 80s, but here in America very few people had ever heard of them. I saw them in small venues. I do like Morrissey for that guess.

Fishbone for ska group influencing No Doubt (sigh).

Tricia13 said...

+1. My hubby said he was one of the nicest guys(used to hang out with them when they were just jamming at small places in Longbeach(I think), CA

Guesser said...

I'll +1 Morrissey and Good Charlotte,maybe also Megadeth.

Moose said...

How about The Pietasters for the ska band.

Brayson87 said...

+1 Tricia for Fishbone

Krab said...

No one loved Morrissey more than me back when but I'd punch him in the face now.

Moose said...

It pains me to no end that No Doubt is considered a ska band. One, they simply aren't. And two, they took one of the greatest songs of all time ("It's My Life"), and destroyed it in their cover version.

sandybrook said...

2-Oasis?

Krab said...

I love "It's My Life" when it was done by Talk Talk. But I do think No Doubt is the most famous "ska" band of all time. I put "ska" because the Selecter would kick No Doubt's ass.

Ann R. Key said...

Definitely Slipknot

MDAnderson said...

I was never into ska but loved him and still heartbroken over his death. I hope his son is doing well.

gauloise said...

2) The Gallagher Bros?

Moose said...

@ Krab - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE The Selecter. "Celebrate The Bullet".

I'm a huge Specials fan as well. I loved that whole Two-Tone era. I still have a well worn out English Beat T-shirt that I refuse to throw away.

Krab said...

Hands up anyone who would be shocked that a Slipknot groupie would say yes to being branded.

Sara, Making It Work said...

2. Drew & Nick Lachey, 98 Degrees

Two similar groups that are still popular being Backstreet Boys & N'Sync.

Tricia13 said...

Same. They really were special. Great sound.
Hope so too

gauloise said...

Krab said...

@Moose: Me too. So danceable and fun.

MDAnderson said...

2. If Good Charlotte then would other bands be Green Day and Blink 182??

Tricia13 said...

Same for Talk Talk and the original.
I have a visceral (not pleasant) reaction to the other and can’t listen

Brayson87 said...

Bite your tongue MD! lol, they were big way before Good Charlotte

Sara, Making It Work said...

I don't think 4 is Pantera.

Tricia13 said...

I dunno? Think Sara maybe got it with the Lacheys...
Or if GC maybe it’s Fall Down Boy

MDAnderson said...

Sorry Brayson It was high school for me. It’s all a blur lol.

Moose said...

Could the brother band be Nelson? They now perform as a Ricky Nelson tribute band.

Don said...

Florin said...

I'd argue Slipknot were not big in the 90's.

gauloise said...

Maybe the Kemp Bros of Spandau Ballet, they are both successful actors now, and "duo" as in are twins.

Duran Duran came at the same time and are still making music,

KA said...

#3 Mighty Mighty Bosstones?

bob said...

#1
After 12 hours of deep meditation, Sting finally became one with the Universal Fountain of Eternal P*ss, becoming its holy channel to man on earth. Then he just flopped it out and let rip. Those who witnessed it say their lives were henceforth showered with golden blessings.

I don't know if it is actually Sting, but I'd like to believe it happened like this.

Trapped said...

Kiss thought I read that decades ago..

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Don, thank you! I remember that walking stick now that I see it.

But my question is, who was beating who? Angelo beat the fan? Or the fan snatched the stick and beat him? Damn Enty grammar.

Sarton Bander said...

Surely Madness is the biggest Ska band?

Defending Champ said...

Slayer branding the lightning bolt makes the most sense.

None of the other metal bands named would have a distinctive enough mark to leave that other bands would know.

It's not like they were branding the full band name on them

Brayson87 said...

@MD, haha high school is a blur for many.

gauloise said...

@defending champ maybe the M in metallica they are such shill band so I can see it being them

MDAnderson said...

Still think it’s GC. Drew pings my gaydar

Sara, Making It Work said...

Slipknot and Queensryche have distinct logos.

Lurky McLurkster said...

#4 has to be Slayer. They were thrash but a huge influence on the emergence of death metal. Plus, their fans are the only ones crazy enough to allow themselves to be branded.

Fishbone is probably #3. I seem to recall that Angelo Moore would have a cane sometimes

Velvet Voice said...

n1 is STING .... We all THE POLICE fans hated the fact that he left the band and some still hate him ..

n2.Sounds like SPANDAU BALLET ... the Kemp brothers, they dont make music people really listen to nowadays and bands from same time DURAN DURAN - STILL on tour and making albums- A-HA ALSO making albums and in tours ...

3.Old ska group is MADNESS ... the one with the angry leader no idea

4. if it s megadeth it would be interesting considering the blind where it said Dave Mustaine s daughter got abused on tour so her dad got revenge by beating the shit of the guy

Lurky McLurkster said...

I heard that Slayer even branded Helen Mirren

Nonya Bidness said...

I didn't think the Police broke up because Sting wanted to leave, but rather that he and couldn't stand working together anymore. And what else would we hate Sting for?

Krab said...

I hate Sting just for being Sting, but most don't. Also his solo work blows.

Dreamnose said...

I hope it's not Pantera too.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Like many have said before, I could see Morrissey for #1. Pretty strict diet, I could see him being supremely hydrated. They probably could have salvaged more from that room, given he was probably just passing water.

orangesoda said...

@Lurky, from what I've heard, EVERYONE has branded Helen Mirren.

I think it's the Good Charlotte annoyances for 2 and Slayer for 4.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@MD, Even if Drew is gay, this is about the whole group. The brothers are a hint to figuring the group.
Anyway, he still could have been involved, especially if closeted.

Mainly, I just noticed Enty's use of "group" that made me think of them over an actual "band". Of course, it could be totally arbitrary.

Sara, Making It Work said...

1. Is totally Morrissey. He gets mad and cancels shows for random BS excuses (hence the universal hate). I bet after he pissed on the furniture, he walked.

I still love his music though.

Davina David said...

The pisser could be Sting. Maybe with all the Yoga training he can control his piss that well...comes in handy at his age...since he was 10 years too old to be a "punk".

flyingtiger said...

#4 Man of War. They are a true medal band. While other bands play, Man of war kills.

shakey said...

1. I'll go along with Sting
2. ?
3. Even though Ent doesn't say foreign-born, I'll go with The English Beat which then dropped the English, and I'll say Ranking Roger. I *think* he used to have a stick with him on stage early on, but I could be misremembering. (Might not be a real word but for now it is.)

4. Metallica

MountainMama said...

I had a giggle out of this. I especially like boob bingo. Too fun.

A. said...

3. Specials? On their album covers, they don't say The Specials. It's just Specials.

joshg g said...

Metallica wasn't death metal like in the 90s. Remember Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters. Megadeth and slayer were more successful in the 80s.this sounds like Pantera, Anselmo yelled most of the time. Slipknot first album was 1999.
3 is Fishbone, Angelo Moore had the cane and a hat he wore. Ps they are awesome.

Lurky McLurkster said...

@joshg g

To me, Slayer hit their prime in the early 90's. Seasons in the Abyss was released in 1990 and Decade of Aggression was 1991.

Adrastia said...

4 sounds really familiar. Like something I may have heard on Metal Sludge a long time ago. I just can't place it.

I doubt it is Metallica. Aren't they permanent A or A+? They aren't former anything. Don't they still sell out venues? And they aren't really close to death metal.Do people literally think bands like Poison and Slaughter when they think Metal?

Megadeth was big in the 90s when they got a lot of mainstream attention for Countdown to Extinction. That would also be the only period where they had a stable lineup. Otherwise it's MegaDave and people MegaDave deems worthy to play with him for five minutes.

Is that was the "death metal" thing is supposed to mean? Megadeth?

I dunno. I find that guess to be kind of off but I don't know why. I may be wrong. Wish I could remember what I had heard.

It's not going to be revealed as something that isn't really metal like Marilyn Manson is it?

But I don't think it's Pantera. He pissed off Vinnie with his groupie stuff. You'd think Rex would have mentioned branding if it happened. Weren't they better known for playing too many pranks on bands they toured with? Isn't that what happened during the tour with White Zombie?

Some people mentioned Slipknot. I can't remember when they were big because I never liked them.

But I know I have heard about this before somewhere. The origin of the story and who it was just escapes me.

Himmmm said...

That shit band Blackwater is my guess.

Missy Bigbritches said...

I absolutely can no longer stomach ska. I liked Specials and English Beat in the 80s but not too much, never bought their albums but wouldn't FF if they were on a mixtape. I am very snobbish about music. No Sublime, not ever. They might've been nice boys but just NO.

sandybrook said...

Lurky has been dead to me for many years defiling Queen Helen Mirren in such disrespectful ways. I still like Low Key but shes pushing it. Now you too orangesoda? 😥

gauloise said...

I can;t imagine Terry Hall flipping out and beating someone with a cane .

It sounds Fishbone, influencing No Doubt, both so cal bands. "No Doubt would help kickstart a ska revival that owed just as much to Fishbone as it did the Specials and Madness."

gauloise said...

#2 the Scottish twins the Proclaimers, no one likes their music anymore cause they are now a christian music act. :p

Velvet Voice said...

CRADLE OF FILTH .... I can definetely see Dani Filth branding his groupies

Anony said...

I think you're right on the fishbone guess... You can clearly see the walking stick being whirled around as he sings... With all the energy and strobe lighting happening, I can totally see how no one would know what was going on for half a minute.

https://youtu.be/KK640dPPhXE

Lonely Bastard said...

@Gauloise.

I didn't like them because the supported Hibs.

Jennacheryl said...

+1 Tricia and I was thinking they influenced the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

Bill Beard said...

1 - Sting or Morrissey.
2 - Gallagher's or maybe Kings of Leon.
3 - Fishbone.
4 - Pantera.

YoSoyMilk said...

Morrissey
Madden brothers
Slayer
And it is definitely fishbone as the ska band

Good job Bill

Couch said...

Please never, ever, ever say anything negative about Pantera, Enty.
Loves. Of. My. Life.
Dime Bag Dave; poor soul.

Paul Saint John said...

He's big in Mexico. No kidding. Still has plenty of fans while the rest of the band members are nowhere to be seen. I liked the guitar player. Killer riffs.

Paul Saint John said...

#4 All of the Death Metal bands. Groupies are trash.

longtimereader said...

Who the f*** are these American non-entities? Ska bands = madness, the specials, the beat, the selector, bad manners etc...UB40 were a reggae band. I do like fishbone though they were more than just ska.

longtimereader said...

Morrissey was an asshole even back in the 80's it's just that people used to make excuses for him. Recently he just flat out came out as a racist douche and lost plenty of former defenders. Thank god i always preferred the Cure and Depeche Mode. Wasn't the lead singer of Pantera phil gay? dimebag was known as a sweetheart, possibly rex or vinnie?

pixiegothy said...

The blind item says it's close to death metal so it's obviously a Thrash Metal band. Probably one of the Big Four of thrash (anthrax, metallica, megadeth, slayer). I listen mainly to traditional death and doom metal since the 90s, never heard of this branding rumour.
Also if it's Slayer that's fucked up, it sort of goes against this article about fan tattoos, maybe with groupies is different?

Velvet Voice said...

longtimereader

I said Madness as the inspiration for the other band!!

Ans Morisey is a hypocrite cause the bachteria that made him cancell his tour when he was in southamerica IS ONLY IN MEAT ...

lully said...

I know a punk band called Germs used to brand their fans with cigarretes mark that represented their circle logo. never heard of any metl band doing that

pixiegothy said...

@Adrastia maybe you read on "Donna's Ho-Bag" on metal sludge? Some old posts from the noughties are still archived there... I tried to find something about branding on RockGroupie voy forum as well but no such luck either.

A list heavy metal band closer to death metal than hair metal who had their prime in the 90's.

Sounds like Slayer. I don't think Metallica or Megadeth is anywhere close to death metal.
