OK.. I love the song, I like the premise of the video, I even like the sound of the lead singer. But after watching the video, I find myself disgusted. The way this guy is flinging his arms around; his movements with the microphone are just down right retarded.

How many lines of coke must this guy have done and how completely braindead must he be to think that's best way to emphasize his point?

Now for all of his ugliness, I have to nominate Chad Kroger of Nickelback as one of the better lead singers, especially when it comes to acting in a music video. He focuses on the basics and emphasizes when needed, but not in an overdone manner. May I present one of the better rock videos of the last 5 years:

Strangely, I find Chad Kroeger very attractive....not in the "he's so hot" sort of way, but he exudes a raw sexuality that just makes me....drool. (BTW, it's Nickelback)

For retarded? Marilyn Manson...something is seriously wrong with that boy...along with Jacko.

Typo. Edited to correct. Thanks for the heads-up.

And I can agree that Marilyn is slightly demented, but at least he has a presence that is somehow intriguing, rather then making you wonder how many midget hookers and hits of acid he's done in the last 12 hours. You know what I mean?

There's just something wrong with the body movements that has turned me off from the band entire.

Edit: Also, look how he's over-emphasizing the words while "on the phone".. it's so obviously lip-synced.

Does anyone seem the arm flailing and wonder if he's got a guy on his mind while he sings this song?

It only took one post for him to come up.
Why is he retarded?

The dude is one of the smartest lead singers out there. Read about him and watch interviews. He is a different guy, but he does it for a reason. What that is? I have no idea. People have such a stigma against this guy. My question is why? His music is angry? I could name many bands that are angrier or more vulgar. I like him because he is like no one around. Every era had a renegade like Manson. A guy who people balked at and protest, Mick Jagger, Elvis etc. Now I would never say that Manson is of the caliber as the said two, but people protested and spoke out against them as they do Manson.

The man goes against mainstream society. Bravo for him.

I have to respectfully disagree. Have you ever seen him interviewed? Granted, his appearance is a little, OK, a lot weird, but he actually speaks very well.

Amazing, isn't it, what a good body, a cute face, and some moves on a stage will get you? Watching that video, which I've never seen before either, reminded me of some of the illiterate people I encounter at work. People who can barely speak in complete sentences. Yet this little tramp has already made more money than I will see in my entire life time. Actually numerous life times.

I think Scott Stapp has a thing or two to show all these idiots about being retarded.

His band sucks, he's notoriously unpopular among his bandmates and peers, gets drunk and unruly at concerts and failed to learn the lesson that has been taught so many times about your sex tapes.

Count my vote for this jackass.

Again, that is what he wants you to think. David Bowie told him a long time ago to never set people strait when they get wild ideas about you, and he has fllowed that advice and he has remaind a metal icon for almost 40 years and OzzFest is a cash cow like no other.

I had a contract to provide stagelighting for Creed during thier first tour, and
it was by far the worst experience me and my partner ever had in show business. Stapp is an asshole and all those songs about brotherhood and love and all that crap are just that, CRAP.

We bailed after the first show we did with them.

Also, he destroyed every main line monitor during that show kicking them with every beat because he thought it was cool and pissed the sound company off because he insisted THEY should pay for new monitors if he felt like destroying them because they should hold up better to being kicked in with boots! Exactly how tough does he expect a JBL cone to be? TOTAL NUTJOB.

Noel Gallagher of Oasis,

I think you mean Liam (he's the lead singer). Liam is the one who refused to play with them in their unplugged performance. Noel sang lead for that performance, with Liam up in the balcony taunting them.

For my own nomination, I would go with Phil Anselmo. Dude was one of the best metal singers there was back in the early to mid 90s. Watch any interview with him now, and it's pretty clear he's stoned out of his motherf*cking mind. COMPLETELY burned out. I truly doubt he has many a brain cell left after all the heroin, weed, and alcohol.

His wife, Sharon, is actually the brains of all Ozzy-related projects and as a matter of fact, she's the one who has run Ozzfest since the beginning. As I understand, Ozzy really doesn't do a whole lot other than get on stage and sing at Ozzfest. Ozzy is pretty much a vegetable these days, the man can barely blurt out a complete sentence without stuttering so he's not really retarded in the sense we're looking for here but he's getting pretty close to being literally mentally retarded.

Actually I enjoy it to read in the "Bild" about Doherty's latest drug sessions, that is very entertaining in my opinion. The story where he smoked crack on stage in Sweden or Norway was the best so far. Big grin

Another vote for Axl Rose. The guy caused his fans to riot in anger because he wouldn't let his band play for them.

Although I grew up a big fan of Megadeth and still listen to them a lot, I'll give an honorable mention to Dave Mustaine for falling asleep with his arm over the back of a chair and damaging nerves, essentially paralyzing it and destroying those wicked guitar skills. I hear he's getting better though. Pretty retarded but I still love em.'

While that has a lot of truth to it, you really should not buy into the myth that keeps the publicity machine churning. Ozzy chose Randy Rhoads Rudy Sarzo and the rest, Ozzy decides on the content of his albums and the members of his band. Ozzy decides who provides sound and lights and how, Ozzy decides what staging will be used. Ozzy made the Black Sabbath reunion happen.

Randy Ozzy and a guy named Bob Daisly I think co wrote all the songs of the first two albums with Ozzy coming up with most of the vocal melodies which he has continued to do to this day. The lyrics were mostly Bobs and the rest of the instrumentals were left to those who played them. Sharon just watched from the booth and secured a label.

Ozzfest was a one off idea that Ozzy made into what it is by making sure the bands were right for the show and giving good performances. Sharon is strictly business, she is a manager, but has created nothing. Giving her all the credit is just not fair to those who did create. Sharons dad made the mistake of underestimating Ozzy and look where that got him.
