    This is amazing and ballsy. This Baltimore band posted a clip of themselves depantsing on stage and dancing. Unbelievable. This I would never do!


    Click on "media" then to their New Year's Eve 2003 video clip.

    I really was astounded that a band would DO this, but then post it on their website.

    wow. Anyone seen anything as gutsy as this?
  2. Pictures of young women partying in bars is generally not a bad thing for a band to promote.

    There is a band from my area, called Sons Of Poseidon, that does some outrageous stuff.

    The bass player has shot bottle rockets out of his butt, they have shaved girls on stage, and several other things that I won't mention here.
  5. hah my band is a culprit of this.

    my singer wears dresses. pleather dresses. hes' a guy.
    but then agian he always does that.

    my guitarist regularly wears a dinosaur costume.

    it seems strange but it gets people to remember you and that can't be such a bad thing

    I've actually heard of that band. And yes, I've done that on stage before too. I have no shame.

    I did that sort of stuff in 1986. I am in a much more tame band. We are about the music on stage. 7 piece bands have to be. We make jaws drop by plaing the SH*T out of our music.. :cool: Leave them wanting more~~Always.. That is our style of music though. Cosmic Railroad

    It depends on what you want to be remembered for.

    Reminds me of a story.
    I was at a bar once, and this guy next to me started talking to me. He said, "See that barn over there? I built that barn, but do they call be Murphy the Barn Builder? No." I nodded, and then he continued. "See the road in front of this bar? I built that road, but do they call me Murphy the Road Builder? No". I nodded and he continued, "But you go and screw one goat..........."

    Not a true story, but it does make a point.
