    Default Most annoying '"hater in the crowd" moment?

    A couple of years ago, while watching one of my favorite bands, Wilco, some jerk-off high school age punk and his friends were next to me, apparently waiting for their favorite band, Weezer. Tweedy and co. were right in the middle of "hummingbird" when it started."Who the hell are these guys? Why are they even at this festival? They are trying to pull off a Beatles sound, and failing miserably! Ha! Ha! WEEZER! WEEZER!" etc. I wanted to give this kid a history lesson about Tweedy being one of the innovators of alt-country during the Uncle Tupelo days, and how Rivers was still in diapers when Tweedy was changing the music world, but I opted for a good 'ol fashioned, "Please, if you don't mind, shut the fuck up!" I was hoping for a "No problem, gaylord" response, ala Dane Cook, but they just started mumbling under their breaths about how they were gonna kick my ass, or something stupid like that.My girlfriend shot me the "don't even think about it" look,and they crept away like the little brats they were, talking crap the whole time. Not one of Wilco's best shows, and understandable, when there are a bunch of retards heckling while they tried to play.
    I know there are other stories like mine out there.

    I hate to say it, but I haven't met one of those kind of people.

    No haters, but there were the annoying wannabe B-Boys (headbands, adidas track suits, etc) during several hip-hop sets (especially in 99) who wanted to start their own little breakdance circles in the middle of a TIGHTLY packed crowd. I'm AMAZED they got out without getting their asses kicked.

    To be fair, we brought our own cardboard dance mats.

    The chick who was laughing hysterically during Trent Reznor performing "Hurt".

    The dude who, from far back in the crowd, kept screaming at the Beastie Boys to play some music instead of talking politics. I would rather have heard more music, too, but who needed this guy ranting about it where the Beasties couldn't even hear him?

    The Valley girls are the worst. They talk through all the songs, sometimes sit on the ground and make people walk around them, and talk 24/7 on the cell phones.

    Anyone talking during Radiohead should be shot in the face.

    And they are always there. Right behind me. Everytime. I had to move 5 times the first night in San Diego last year.

    back in like...2000 maybe I went to see Jimmy Eat World with Desaparecidos and The Promise Ring. Desaparecidos was awesome, but the crowd wasn't liking it. One of the guitarists said something like "thanks, you've been an awesome crowd" in an extremely sarcastic tone. After they finished this woman behind me says "that was the worst half hour of my life" in her terrible jersey girl accent. Fucking bitch.

    The worst I've seen was at a Run DMC concert at the Cubby Bear in Chicago in 98 (yes, the Cubby Bear, a sports bar and not a great or appropriate place for a hip hop show..but I digress). Anyway, there were about 3 or 4 white supremacists yelling racial epithets, telling them to get off the stage, get the hell out of here, etc... It was a pretty bad scene and they ended up getting kicked out after many complaints and being that about 200 people were about ready to pummel them. Unfortunately the show was nearly over, so they got to be unbelievable pricks for almost the entire show.

    I hope I don't ever have to witness that type of event again. Although I'm sure I will.

    Mine was in San Diego at Street Scene in 2005, I was watching Garbage, one of my favorite bands that I was seeing for the first time ever after listening to them for at least 8 years. Anyways there was one guy in the crowd who kept screaming in my ear "Killlllersss," because the Killers were headlining that stage. I should have kicked his drunk ass for doing so.

    Last year during Tool, This girl next to me was on the phone with a friend, the entire time holding the phone up in the air as if her friend could make out the music being played. In between (and during)songs she would scream into the phone

    "can you hear it?"

    "Maynard is my GOD"

    After two or three songs I turned to her and told her to "shut up!! Tell her to buy a fucking ticket next time!!"

    She looked at me like I was the one being an ass, and strutted away clucking into her phone.

    It wasn't really a hater moment, but these two super annoying blonde's kept screaming at the vocalist for The New Amsterdam's last year, and he told them to be quiet nicely, but they kept being rude. I wanted them to get pulled across the rails by security and get escorted out, but they didn't :[.

    Was that at the "Parking Lot Scene" or was it still in the streets downtown? Damn...when it was in the streets downtown it was CRAZY. All kinds of drunken fights breaking out...even during Dilated Peoples. Damn I miss the REAL Street Scene....I cant bring myself to go to the Parking Lot Scene. I refuse to.

    I'm suprised no one mentioned the Tool fans screaming "WHO IS THIS GAY BAND??!! WHERE'S MAYNARD!?!?!? WE WANT TOOOOLLL!!! MAYNARD IS GODD!!! " during Massive Attack. That pissed me off like no other. I mean I love Tool, but their fans can be complete idiots. Antoher one is when I saw Massive Attack in San Diego last year there was some stupid girl screaming and dancing like a whore almost the whole time. This guy behind me said he'd pay me 50 bucks to throw her down the stairs, and let me tell you, I almost did.

    dood, at the same time, these two doods next to me, who i can only assume were stoned out of their minds, kept jumping up and down, knocking into people and screaming out "WILCOOOOOOO!!!!" Not that they were hating, but i thought the idea of a wilco pit was a contradiction in terms.
    oh, and on my way out of the festival last year, i heard this one girl hating on daft punk, while her little kroq bitch ass was watching she wants revenge. im very greatful for the 39509238 people at the fest who arent douche bags.

    Last weekend some doofus right behind me decided he wanted to start a pit during The Mountain Goats. When he didn't have any takers, he just rubbed up against me and smeared his sweaty armpits all over my head all night long. It ruined what was otherwise a fantastic show.

    Alright, I have a story.

    U2/Pearl Jam/Kings of Leon [absent] in Honolulu last year.

    We had a very tight community formed in the front middle of the GA area, nearly all the way up to the fence. Plenty of fuckheads tried to plow their way up the packed crowd to the front as soon as U2 started playing, and got turned away really fast by members of our community. One particularly belligerent asshole kept pushing and seemed like he wanted to fight by the way he wouldn't quit. Well, no one really wants to fight and get thrown out the show, especially since the main act just started, but he plowed right into a pregnant lady from Chicago to my immediate left, and we had talked throughout the day ... well that drove me into a furious rage. I pushed my female friend to the side away from where the belligerent crowd-plower/pregnant lady was, and stepped right inbetween them. I put my hand on the guy and said very loudly "SHE'S PREGNANT MAN. SHE'S PREGNANT!" What I said got through to him in his state, and he looked somberly and said he was sorry with his facial expression. Then he left our area to somewhere else.

    I just moved here from Southern California last August; and believe me, I really don't like it. Here are some of the reasons:
    There is NO music scene
    It's ass-backwards/behind the times - everything from development to government issues to procedures for everyday items (drivers license, etc...)
    No fashion sense or taste in design (home decor, buildings, etc...)(except for a few)
    Indie movies are rarely shown
    There are too many bigots and close minded people
    Organized religion is prevalent and seems to be involved in everything (including decisions that affect normal citizens) - I am agnostic
    Kentucky really has some of the worst drivers in the U.S., if not the worst (I've been to a lot of states and visited many countries and they deserve the honor)
    The weather sucks as it rains too much (they call Lexington the Seattle of the South - nice)
    It has no jobs, and is the 5th worst state in the U.S. for unemployment (above the National average)
    No professional sports (and definitely no waves - I have 4 boards sitting in the rafters of my garage)

    There is a lot more and I could go on. Of course these are generalizations that DO fit most of the people. There are, however, pockets of civility a good people - many of whom we have befriended. My wife and I both dislike living here and are planning on moving back to the West Coast in about 4-5 years (we have to wait that long). So until then, I'll have to fly in for Coachella, rent a car, take my anti-depressants, and suck it up.

    Sorry for the diatribe, but I felt compelled to explain after your statement, which is true. Cheers.

    At NIN at Soma in San Diego last year or the year before the Dresden Dolls were opening. Some drunk biker-looking dude who must've been like 40 was yelling through their entire set about how much they suck and how NIN needs to hurry up and get on stage, etc.

    It was all good though, because after NIN's first song (after they did the whole dramatic opening part) Trent stopped for a moment and said..

    Trent: Hey who was that guy yelling at the Dresden Dolls?
    Crowd: Points at the dude
    Drunk biker dude: WHOOOOOO!!!
    Trent: GO FUCK YOURSELF
    Drunk biker dude: whoo..
    Crowd: Laughs and tells the drunk biker dude that he's a douchebag

    So it worked out, I guess.
