Has any band disappointed you live?


#2 New Zealander
After going to bullet for my valentine live, I can't stand listening to them anymore. I think Ive only listened to them once since the concert. Thank god Atreyu and A7X where there too, otherwise I would have wasted my money

Any experiences you want to share?


The Hierophant
There's no way I'd go to that concert.

However, at my last job, I was working as a medic right by the stage for Taking Back Sunday or some such. I think they were supposed to be religious but all I heard was screaming. I got paid to be there for that and it was still not worth it.

I had the unfortunate displeasure of seeing both the Black Tide and Walls of Jericho live as they were on the venue for Mayhem Fest (which I went to see Disturbed, Dragonforce, and Five Finger Death Punch). I knew both bands sucked but I had no idea until I saw their sucktitude in full force.

I saw Prodigy with my sister once - she forced me to go and see them. They are not a group I would ever go and see by choice, believe me. I hated every minute of it and felt like I was stuck in a huge room full of ravers. As soon as they came on stage some idiot behind me jumped up in the air with a beer in his hand and it went ALL over me.

I think I liked maybe one song but the atmosphere was not for me. Incubus were the most amazing band I've seen live. Whenever I think of my bad experience with my sister I think of Incubus and it makes me feel better.

In Flames. Good, tight music on albums. Big issues translating the 'melodic' of 'melodic death metal' to the stage.

cocorosie.... i had their first album which was kind of ambient/folk... went to see them not knowing they had turned into an awful... spacy hip-hop band since then! it was so terrible. saw bullet for my valentine i think it was the day before that actually as it happens! i'd agree.... awful stuff.


~Lucky 13 strikes again~
Yeah, I can name several bands that disappointed me in concert, lets start off with Motley Crue : They suck live

Here a few others that suck live..

Skid Row
Twisted sister
White Snake
I hate to say it but Van Halen and Van Hagar. These are just to name a few. I have been to over 200 concerts, some were Awesome and others just plain sucked live.

I heard Motley Crue's singer sucked live but the rest of the band was fuckin great.

Night, Van Halen sucked live? Who was the lead singer then David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar?

I've been to four concerts, and I've never been disapointed, I believe they were all amazing live.


Everything goes.
Prodigy live just this summer, and they STILL sucked.

Rage Against the Machine was horrible.
