    Yeah, I used a Ramones title for this thread. But that's not the point.

    Have you ever been to a concert and seen a [band name here]-obsessed person that you want to beat the crap out of?


    I had VIP passes for Evanescence, but I had to be let into the venue at the front gates (it's an outdoor venue). I'm waiting at the gate, my brother (the second ticket person) was next to me, and one of the employees at the venue comes up to the gate and yells "I'm looking for VIPs from 99.1, 99.5 and DC101."
    This guy pushed me out of the way and said "I'm a VIP! I have their first album, Origin!" And he shoots his arm up in the air to prove it- hitting me in the cheek while doing it.
    I pushed back towards the gate and said "yeah. I'm Robyn, with DC101." And the guy goes "Yeah! I'm her guest!"
    I grabbed my brother's arm and I said "No, THIS is my guest."
    The guy said "Yeah, but I slept at the ticket booth to get tickets. I could only afford lawn seats, but still! I'm a VIP! I've been a fan from the beginning!"
    Then the DJ from DC101 came over and said "Dude, shut up. I'm looking for a chick. She said she was short. Are you her (pointing towards me)"
    I grinned and said "Yes!" The DJ then said "Okay, let's get you away from this idiot. I have your backstage pass at the table."
    The guy wasn't very happy. But I really wanted to beat his ass for elbowing me and trying to get in.

    Oh, this one time at an AC/DC concert...

    First, do you know that 40-something, 70's rock 'n roll obsessed, rock band tatooed (most likely the "Dark Side of the Moon" Prism), drunk guy who's favorite phrase is "ROCK 'N ROLL WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! *pukes then passes out* "? That guy? You got the image in your head now? Okay.

    Like I was saying, this one time at an AC/DC concert, I was standing next to one of those... "guys"... and he would not shut up! He constently wanted to share his appreciation of the rock legends that were rocking in front of us with EVERYONE! He wanted to hug me. I'm gonna say that again: HE WANTED TO HUG ME, he loved rock so much. I refuse to believe he was lucid that night. At one point, he was very quiet and stopped talking. I was rather curious as to was going on; maybe he was dead; awesome! I look over. What do you think he was doing... OF COURSE! He was SMOKING WEED! That only way to get a guy like that to shut up is to mellow him out. The only way to mellow him out is with weed. He saw me looking at him and he offered me a toke. I have a rule about touching anything that has touched the lips of an asshole, so I said no.

    Granted, it wasn't as beat-down worthy as your story, Tinkerhell, but pissed-off inducing none the less.

    Don't you love assholes?

    Side note about my story: The DJ used the "backstage pass" thing on purpose, just to piss the guy off.
    But as you can see (in my profile)...It wasn't a lame excuse.

    I partially dislocated my hip at a POD concert thanks to the shirtless wonders who (between sets, mind you) decided to get the crowd pushing back and forth. My buddy and I were at the edge of the pit, and as soon as I saw what was going on, I was on my back on concrete, with about 5 guys laying on my right leg. This would not have burt, but my shin and foot were on top of my left leg (above the knee) , so tension + force = dislocation. I couldn't walk very good, but still managed to make my way into the pit and exact some revenge.

    I had my nose ring ripped out by a skinhead at a Zombie concert.
    And a patch of hair.

    But I fucked him up pretty good before they (security) carried me off. Lets just say I'm sure he wont be having kids...at all.

    I remember people started moshing at a Smashing Pumpkins concert. To begin with, Billy Corgan wasn't happy that they were moshing. Then I was thrown into the mosh pit. Understand, a 5'0" girl that is about 100 lbs should NOT be in a mosh pit. My friends started freaking out, and Billy Corgan actually stepped away from the mic for a second to tell security to get me the hell out.
    Oh yeah, and I went to that concert the April after my first knee surgery (Which was in November)...so between the bass shaking up my knee (and hurting) and people bumping into me to throw me in the pit...I was in a LOT of pain.

    Okay...I'm a PACIFISTIC 5'0 100lb girl. I won't hurt anyone unless I have to (or they've really, REALLY pissed me off...like the guy I kicked in the chest with my steel-toed boots...*evil grin*). Oh, and the Smashing Pumpkins concert was my first concert ever.

    After over 10 years of punk & hardcore shows I've got a lot of instances of dealing with shit like this. Ugh... people can be some obnoxious when it comes to their favorite band and being the #1 fan of said band.

    Let's see, there's the one time at an Earth Crisis/Snapcase (at least I think it was with Snapcase otherwise I don't know why I even went, can't stand Earth Crisis) show that this kid decided to do a flip off of a speaker column instead of a normal stage dive and landed 10 feet in front of me (right in front of his friends who decided not catch his ass) ON HIS NECK and ExCx kept playing while everyone on the floor was checking to see if this kid was even breathing. Had to keep some no necks from stomping this kid and send a couple of guys I knew to see how fast we could get some medical attention for him. Luckily the guy turned out to be okay after a concussion and being in a neck brace for a couple months or something.

    This makes me sad...

    For all the people here that have been to concerts...there aren't more people with these kinds of stories?

    If I get the time I might roll out some more... here's a quick one....

    One time we helped set up a VFW Hall show for the Mr. T Experience and I had the opportunity to spend most of the time hanging out with Dr. Frank drinking beers, getting him drunk, and then enjoying all of his gut spill about what shows in halls like this were like when he was a kid and his other musings on life whilst many a 20something or teenaged girl swooned by him. Unfortunately the swoonage didn't help me out but we did have a mighty fine time being drunken musicians by the time the show started.

    That's exactly how every P.O.D. concert is.

    Which is exactly why I will never go to another concert of theirs again. You'd think that most of these guys would be concerned with "spreading the love of Jesus", not trying to cause permanent injury to random fans.

    My personal experience of their show was just messed up. Way too many idiots trying to "jump the fence" and "jumping onto the stage". My favorite of these was the infamous "grabbing the little 12 year old fans and tossing them up into the air to meet Jesus".

    Oh, "who I've met" stories are the ones I find most fun. Because I can legitimately say I've been felt up by Justin Timberlake. Then again, I was working in Disney.
