    I saw popular 90's pop-group 'steps' at wembley when I was about 6...

    Just incase you havn't heard their bangin beats...here's a taster.
    i actually kinda miss being so naive about music, innocent times.



    your turn...gwarn, spill.

    None I don't think.

    Some might say Funeral For A Friend are because they're a bit emo, but there's not that bad.

    we used to go to a festival called hultsfred when i was like 16-17 and just walking around the festival area smoking skunk i saw a lot of stupid shit, amongst which we find the charlatans, eagle eye cherry, and other brit pop groups that was hot round 97. we didnt spend time or anything, just walk by the big stages and go duuude... that festival would have everybody though, like from wu-tang and ratm to oasis and tricky to dark funeral and pantera

    I remember when i was about 6 or something i saw PJ & Duncan aka Ant & Dec do a lil gig in my town! That's pretty embarrassing! I've seen Linkin Park as well that's pretty bad too! I'm sure I've seen other really bad bands as well just can't think atm

    Where is the business?

    I don't know if I've seen any terrible bands, I see some crazy Jap band called Mad Capsule Markets when I was 14 at the dome, but I see lots of good shit too like Cypress Hill.

    People may remember this from a Tony Hawk game

    few things are so embarrassing as nu metal with rappers and dj scratching, linkin park in the forefront of a movement that had to die a most painful and drawn out death. and thats how it was from the start, i think crazy town was the pinnacle of credibility

    I remember Mad Capsule Markets.

    Seen loads of bands, nothing embarrassing really though. Haven't been to watch a gig in far to long.

    yup, that one is heavy, outranks most in this thread. steps was a throw-away act whereas mel c stayed in power for quite a while. a squalid filthy horribly ugly and terribly stupid while. but surely someone has been to a crazy town concert or enrique iglesias perhaps, i once talked to an american girl that had snow perform on her graduation and that was 2002

    My mate got dragged by his ex to see a Kylie Minogue & Boyzone b2b gig once. I'd have broken up with her rather than go.
