    I nominate Ween. They're one of my favorite bands, but those dudes look like they rummage through Salvation Army dumpsters. Definitely goes with their slacker, stoner, dgaf aesthetic.

    hot fun in the summertime! :laugh:

    i've seen worse.

    i've mostly been a "dress up" musician --- just the nature of the gigs --- but if the band is bringin' it = doesn't matter to me what they look like.

    Back in the 90s, Dave Matthews Band looked like they had just gotten up from their table at McDonald's and stepped onto the stage. Stoned as Hogan's goat and barely able to function (and that was three different tours). My girlfriend at the time was really into them.

    Pretty much equally as frumpy as "Ween" (whoever they are).

    Ween are far more interesting than DMB would ever hope to be, and recorded one of the all-time great country albums.

    It's funny to me how college age kids who come from money dress down ie salvation army, goodwill,etc and kids from same age group who don't come from money dress up ie 200 dollar jeans, 300 dollar shoes etc. But such is life when you're judged by your appearance.
    Worst dressed bands is shorts, sandles, Hawaiian shirts...That Means You!

    In case it wasn’t obvious this is just light hearted fun. Not being judgmental. Someone always gets offended though. I’ve worn everything from a dirty morning robe to a full suit on stage.

    That's pretty much how every band in the 90s looked. Maybe not the stoned part, but the image.

    These guys always come to mind with 90s non-image. The dude on the left just got finished golfing, apparently.

    That Jack Antonoff dude dresses pretty goofy.

  13. Can't be bothered to find pics, but I nominate Pearl Jam... specifically the early to mid 90's...

    Having said that a LOT of the bands in the early to mid 90's qualify for this honor.

    I mean, if we're going there...
    Might as well start from the top, the big top, the toppermost top of badly dressed bands.

    I love RUSH with my whole heart but they made some very unfortunate fashion decisions over the years.... rush-wearing-kimonos-e1431268243165 (1).jpg

    Viv Westwood would not approve. I'm not sure what's worse. The sweatband or the fact that it's adjacent on the color wheel to the pajama top he pulled out of the hamper.
