    A while back there was a thread here on awful band photos, pointing to a website with hundreds of examples. I can't find the thread or that website. Maybe I dreamed it...

    Anyone remember what it was?

    If you google the words “awkward band photos”, you’ll find a plethora of websites, FB pages, and blogs focusing on the cringe. Then there are the sites concerning heinous album covers/artwork.

    I seem to remember that. They had a whole section covering bands who had photos taken on railroad tracks (lots and lots of them).

    There’s a lot to unpack here but… the dudes in the matching red jumpsuits? The one guy with the handlebars looks a lot like James Hetfield back in the And Justice/black album days.

    Not the website, but it does not get any more awful than this.

    Rock and Roll Confidential was THE BEST. That hall of Douchbags is such an amazing snapshot of the time.

    The sad thing is that's a successful band -- the Scorpions. :D

    i believe the site was called rocknrollconfidential.com. train tracks and brick walls were prominently featured. been gone quite a while -- i can't even find samples on the wayback machine.

    Just going to leave this gem here, pretty sure it was from the thread you were talking about as well.
