8 Musicians Who Need a Punch in the Face

Music, like any form of art, is objective. What’s not objective? Being an asshole.

Radio Exile knows this, and has reacted accordingly. Ten thumbs up.

There are a lot of pretty valid reasons that one might want to punch another human being in the face: they might be physically revolting, they could owe you money or smell a bit “off”, or they might even be someone who has caused you some harm in the past. Throw all of those reasons out the door because this isn’t just any list, this gathering of musicians have offended some of us to the point that, yes, we want to hit them.

No, that’s not a photo of Fergie, we just really, really hate her and really, really love Aretha’s hat!

Not that it would impact her looks much, but I would love to punch Fergie (Stacy Ferguson) in the face. And her solo music is just as busted as her face. Her inclusion in the Black Eyed Peas may have rejuvenated the band’s career, but it completely watered down their style for the mainstream. The only thing Fergie is selling is sex, which in her case, doesn’t get past those plastic lips.

Now, you may be asking yourself, where is the love? Fair question. The answer? Look elsewhere. What a terrible mismatch.

Slash, how could you? – Elie Perler

There are a lot of reasons I want to punch Amanda Palmer of Dresden Dolls, but let’s start with one concert in particular.

The show in question was hosted by WFNX at the Harborside Bank of America Pavillion. It was 35 degrees. It was April. The show started at 4pm and ran until 10 or so. Death Cab for Cutie was headlining, with supporting acts including Presidents of the United States of America and Amanda Palmer. After about two hours in the biting wind, Palmer took the stage.

First offense: the absolute butchering Radiohead’s “Creep” with her ukelele and moaning whale song. Thanks for destroying something beautiful.

Second offense: her constant name dropping throughout the performance, i.e. “There’s this really great guy that I got to work with, I don’t know if you’ve heard of him, he’s also a really great piano player, his name is Ben Folds” spoken in that voice. You know the voice: valley girl meets Ivy League grad student and it happened, literally, in between each song.

Third offense: her pretentious eyeshadow. Gross.

I’ve got news for you Amanda: You’re not clever. No one cares if your second cousins with Prince and your cabaret countenance alone is well deserving of five across the eyes. – Holly Perry
