I was wondering if anyone here in the pit partakes in any shenanigans on stage, or has seen any other bands doing this? probably one of my favorite aspects of live shows, seen some that were pretty hilarious. lets see, lol, some good ones i remember... Goldfinger's drummer sometimes puts a twinkie in his ass, and then someone from the crowd comes and takes a bite out of it. One time this band called Screaming Mechanical Brain was on tour with another band, and they toilet papered them while the other band was playing their last song. people in their hometown also have this tradition of throwing mass ammounts of plastic spoons on stage while they're playing. got any others?

The Flaming Tsunamis encourage their fans to have giant pool noodle fights. I have yet to partake in one though

What's with everyone saying shenanigans today?

I once saw a band all dress up in christmas sweaters, and then the singer led a conga line outside where everyone started dancing. I forget what they were called though... they weren't very famous.

There's this local Detroit band called Beggars. Their singer is the definition of stage shenanigans. He'll do things like wrap the mic around the guitar and sing from it while it's hanging, throw the mic through his legs and hit himself in the head, rip holes in his pants and have the audience guess how large, only to give them his socks as a prize. Hilarious dude.

My band plays jump rope with their guitar cables during a drum or bass solo.

I swear to God I'll pistol whip the next guy that says shenanigans!
Sorry, couldn't resist!
but yup, I've seen a band where at the end of every concert, everyone in the band beat the crap out of the singer, needless to say, the band didn't last.

My band plays Brainstew/Jaded by Greenday.And during the Jaded part(incase you havent heard it,its super fast sloppy punk) i have a wireless system on my bass so I will jump into the crowd and mosh along with them.I frequently challenge a spectator to a wrestling match.but i think my favorite is i have this rope that i tie from my belt to my amp(which is pretty huge and usually anchored down and then ill take a solo and lean backwards into the crowd.Ill have kids pulling me and even chiks trying to kiss me.But all in all its a geat way to end the song.
In our attempt to seek individualty,we have all become the same

I remember seeing a video of LoG where someone threw a water bottle at Randy Blythe. He threw it back, hit the kid in the face, and said "nice throw, faggot." I lol'd.

I remember hearing about some famous guitarist (I forget who) who broke his strap in the middle of a solo, caught it before it hit the ground with his picking hand, and continued the solo entirely with his playing hand, all quite majestically.

At a huge annual festival around here, Black Stone Cherry was playing, and for one of their songs the guitarist jumped into the crowd and entered a mosh pit, guitar in hand and still playing the song.

And let's not forget that one guy in that one black metal band who simply shot himself on stage. Can't beat that.

Oh, and Phil from ATR signing some guy's dick. Not something I would do, but you gotta give him credit, being a straight man (to my knowledge).

I saw Faith No more at Brixton Academy in the UK a long time ago and Patton took his shoe off and pissed in it, threw the piss in to the crowd and put his shoe back on. Later on he jumped on the bassist, forced him to the ground, pulled his trousers down and humped him.... the bassist looked a little pissed of by this.

A lot of high jinx but they were a bit **** that night tbh.

one time i threw my drum stick off the stege and it impailed this guys eye, lol oh well, im sure he was ok
#18
One time at show I ate a hamburger during a part where I didn't need my left hand. Then another time during the same part when I was sick, I had some Dayquil and I drank from the bottle. That kind of stuff and goofing around with the crowd/other members. I'm probably forgetting a good one...

One of my old drummers had a pair of fire resistant drumsticks (don't ask) and would pour kerosene on his crashes and light em up. Course they sounded like absolute **** afterwards.

I wanna say the guy from Mayhem, but I know that's wrong.

It happened, trust me. I think he used a shotgun.

Holy ****! that would either be the best or the worst concert you could ever go to, depending on where he shot himself and if it was a shotgun:

Leg: Awesome
Head: Crazy
Arms: Crazy Awesome!

I was gonna see them in Key West this past summer but when they arrived at the venue they weren't allowed to play, as they were kicked out for blowing out the amps and creepily hitting on my friend's sister the time they played before.

Recently got the whole Fear Everything album, which is bitchin. Only need to get Focus the Fury...
#33
Well, me and my fellow guitarist both have wireless, so for the beginning of every set, we go outside the venue with our guitars. the band then starts playing, we play along outside and about halfway-ish through the song in the middle of a breakdown we bust out from the back of the room and throwdown with all the crazy kids. Guitar spins ensue, one time I hit a kid with my guitar so I gave him the shirt of my back (literally) and one of my bands shirts and our EP.

And, this one time, I stage dived off a 4 meter stack of speakers...into a crowd of people who were there to see the band after us lol

Stage *un-speakable S word* = super fun
#34
Our band covers Bulls on Parade (we started covering it a good while before Guitar Hero 3 came out, btw.)

In the solo for it, which I would usually play by scratching the strings with the pick while muting them and opening/closing my wah pedal, but lately I've just been slinging the guitar off my back and doing the robot and random dance moves with the singer comes up and scratches the strings with his mic. Good times.

i went to go see my buddies band for my 17th birthday cause their new singer was "so awesome"

he was ****ing brutal alright. the guy was pissed out of his tree, and by the 3rd song, completely naked.. not too pretty since the guy was like.. 5'10 and 230 lbs..

death metal at its finest.

when another band was playing he punched out the guitarist as well.

Cypress Hill gives out drugs on stage.

I remember seeing this grindcore band at a local pub called Kummbunzbootiebitchbunch. At one point they threw a huge block of cheese into the crowd and the person that could hold on to it for the longest time got a free t-shirt. They also threw letter shaped cookies into the crowd and you would get a free t-shirt if you could spell the band name with them on stage. Good times, good times.

I have a couple moves that I pull on stage. Nothing major, really, but it entertains.

There's the shotgun, bug you for a drink (works best with a cute girl), moonwalk, stare at the cutest girl there while doing a BASS SOLO (yes, they exist! I think I invented it ), drink & play, mess with guitarist's pedal board during a solo, hit a crash with my bass, headstock into the singer's butt, suicide by instrument cable, the classic rig jump, I spilled my water, the classic bass drum stand, monitor perching, can has kiss? (a trademark of mine), bass spins...

But really, the best part is playing your instrument properly. Good stage antics keep the show entertaining, but at least play the music properly, or you'll just look like you're wanking, and the rest of the band won't be pleased.

A band I know from the local area called "Badaxe" used to get up to to all sorts of stuff, at one point they were banned from playing at most places.

- Lead singer/bassist would only wear trainers + bermuda shorts with a dildo hanging out.
- He'd often take a shit in a bucket on stage.
- He used a radio connection for his bass and would run outside the venue to play in the street. He also brought a wheelie bin from out side onto the stage once and started throwing rubbish from it into the crowd.
- All their songs are very politically incorrect. The "Concorde" song for instance which they wrote around the time of the crashes. He had a pre-made paper aeroplane that he would set fire to and throw across the room at the finale.

The chorus to one of their most loved songs can still be heard from time to time when someone puts Oasis on the jukebox; "Don't look back in anger... Liam's a wanker!"
