"Actually, me and my fella went to a Raconteurs concert, and the opening band, Dr. Dog was fantastic, put on a great show. one of my faves now."

I saw Dr. Dog open for the Black Keys. They were ok, but the Black Keys were amazing.

well put simim, and i just want to say that freebird is really a pretty sh*tty song. it`s just a slow ballad with a ridiculous guitar solo tacked on to the end. its definitely still a classic though.

"I either am or don`t mind half those people "

Agreed. How are these annoying?

The annoying people:

-crowd surfers that wear BOOTS. Ack, my earrings have gone missing due to someone`s dumbass boots skidding my ear before.

- People who wait in line for the concert wayy before they need to

-People who know about the band than the band member`s own moms do.

- People who smoke in the middle of the show. I smoke. I don`t mind smokers, except when I`m in a crowd, trying to breathe FRESH air and I get a mouthful of crap smoke from some dumbass who "really needed a cig." Go outside of the crowd.

- Drunk moshers

- Hardcore kids/emo kids who hardcore dance to metal.

- People who sing the songs into your ear.

- Girls at metal shows who are dressed up nice and DON`T expect to get bumped. Ladies, you are idiots. Put on jeans and a t-shirt and take it like a real woman.

- Girls who use their boyfriends as shields.

I agree with most of those. Except moshing. That`s fun :D

"what about the person behind you that manages to sing louder than the band...and really really sucks"


That *should* have been on the list. And number one at that.

When people stand behind me and scream the lyrics into my ear the entire time, I get overwhelming urges to bitch slap them. Drunk people suck too. At a Kings of Leon concert a few weeks ago I pulled two completely wasted dumbasses away from killing each other, and they were nice enough to pour a glass of beer on me.

They also forgot the people who watch the whole thing through their camera phone/digicam/similar. A lot of gigs I`ve been to in the last couple years there`ll be a bunch of people who push their way to the front only to try record the whole thing on some device, holding it up to block the view of people behind them and watching the screen more than the stage themselves.

I`m all for people grabbing photos or quick clips but an entire performance? Oish.

Maybe it`s just a UK thing though.

They forgot the guy who jumps while leaning on your shoulders to get a better view or show how much they love the band.

They also forgot the guy that pushes his dick in your back. Or maybe that`s just something I get, at every gig i`ve ever been to.

I`ve encountered all of these except the protesters and that guy who yells out freebird.

But, honestly, what`s wrong with wearing the shirt of the band that you are going to see? I`ve been to some rough gigs and I`d rather wear a shirt form the band I`m seeing rather than a shirt for a band everyone hates and get beat up for it.

I like to mosh because I find it extremely hard to hear anything except the bass and drums since I turn half deaf about 10 seconds into the concert.

Oh god. I hate the rabid rockermoms at shows. They are so bitchy.

I find it crazy how you can go into a show looking great and an hour later come out looking like you been mauled by 10 bears.

I think the worst is Tokio Hotel shows. Well, the first 8 rows anyway. Teens get CRAZY. Pulling hair, pushing like they will die a horrible death if they don`t get to the front, and screaming and crying the boys` names so they can get some attention. JUST WATCH THE DAMN SHOW

If I buy a shirt at a concert I shouldn`t wear it because its lame now.....

They forgot about the people standing right in front of the stage and getting pissed that they are getting jostled. Most of them have a beer in their hand that they are afraid to spill.

And how is wearing a shirt in a mosh pit make difference? A t-shirt soaked with sweat is not any better to rub against than skin.

Needless to say, I spun around, spewing acid and slugged him, though only in the shoulder as it was all I could reach. He quickly retreated, leaving me to fume for the rest of the show, essentially ruining the remainder of my night.

Ah, yes, run across every single one of these, except the protesters, though I know they`ve been to shows in my area. I`d like to add one more type, if I may. Every show I`ve ever been to (including the ones I`ve been to with my husband), there`s been at least one guy who thinks he`s going to hook up with me and deems it okay to get all up on me. I hate that. I`m there for the show, not to get freaky with you on the floor or go back to your hotel room with you. Case in point, at a show I attended solo a guy was standing behind me, keeping the pushers from squishing me to death. This was fine, even appreciated, at first, since I was alone and I`m a pretty small person. At one point I`d managed enough elbow room on the floor to get a decent breath and realized my pants felt really loose. That "nice guy" had managed to unbuckle my belt and undo my pants, without me even noticing!

This is a list for people that go to really mainstream rock shows at huge stadiums or big festivals like Warped Tour. Sure you get similar people at smaller shows in small clubs, but usually you have got the "scene kids" and the skinheads and the 13 year old kids who are at their first show and are freaking out/ getting killed. Oh and dont forget about the stoner kids! And the opening band thing is only true for giant stadium shows. Usually at smaller shows the opening bands are great. Btw, been to about 50+ shows and play in a band. Yes 50+ shows at age 17, I truly have no life besides music.

forgot the couple practically (or actually) having sex. there is ALWAYS this couple, why they couldn`t finish in the car before or after the concert, nobody knows.

they also forgot the people who show up to a concert 6 hours early, even though its assigned seats. It`s understandable for pit tickets or lawn seats, but if you know your seat is reserved, why even bother getting there more than 30 minutes before it starts?

Meh, I don`t have a problem with moshers...
It`s fun as long as you`re into it.

My biggest problem are the people who`ve gone there just to be seen and have no idea who`s playing.
Those are the type of people you push into the raging Mosh Pit.

The main group that annoys me at the concerts I`ve been to (the whopping 2 of them) are the over 21`s in the alcohol section who don`t pay attention at all and get louder and smellier as the night drags on. Why come if you`re going to drunkenly yell over the music?

I`ve been to three concerts. One official one.
I have only seen the security guards. I`m actually surprised nobody did the "rushing." Thank goodness the fans are pretty courteous. Oh, and I saw a few people wearing the band t-shirt. I have band t-shirts, but I know I`d feel cliche if I were to wear them at their concert.
I forgot about "Freebird." I think one person did that a long time ago.

#4 is stupid. Of course you wear the shirt of the band that`s playing. You wouldn`t go to a Beatles concert with a Hannah Montana shirt on (assuming they were all alive/preforming during the same era). You wear the shirt to further show your support for the band you`re about to see.
