i guess if you are talkin from a survival point of view rather than a sad dumb piece of emo crap then you are right.

And maybe some coke (and again, no not the drug).

Buffalo wings
Soft drink

Maybe some internet

Not very demanding, something to eat, to drink, a sharpie to sign autographs, and internet to check emails. Its a very reasonable rider that doesnt require much effort if done right.

I like Iggy Pop's rider.

The best part is he asks for some Natural American Spirit ciggarettes, which we obviously don't get here in Aus.

Well, there are two types of rider, technical and personal.
The technical rider concerns the onstage needs of a band, such as safety, making sure that everything is earthed properly, that kind of thing.
The personal rider obviously concerns you're backstage requirements, but one can be related to the other.
Van Halen once famously requested in the technical rider that a bowl of M&M's be provided in their dressing room with the brown ones removed (failure to do so would mean that the band would not perform, but the venue would still have to pay the full fee) The objective of this was to determine how much attention to detail the crew at a local venue paid to the requests specified in the technical rider, which included all the bands safety aspects.
Should the bowl be absent, or if brown M&M's were present, it would give band members reason to suspect other, more legitimate, technical and safety issues were also being performed poorly or were outright overlooked.
Dave Lee Roth stated in his autobiography that this request was done as a result of faulty workmanship at a venue on an earlier tour which nearly cost the life of a member of Van Halen's road crew, as well as $85,000 damage to the venue and their own equipment.
