10 Rock + Metal Interviews Gone Wrong

There’s something viscerally satisfying that comes with an uncomfortable moment. You can feel yourself heating up, holding your breath and scrunching your face while taking extreme pleasure from a cringeworthy interview — and we’ve got 10 of them in this Loud List!

Interviews can go wrong in a menagerie of ways, but let’s start off with musicians simply being out of control. The Sex Pistols‘ iconic 1976 interview with Bill Grundy may be the most infamous of all time, making history as the first time the word “f–k” was said uncensored on “pre-Watershed” television.

In this Loud List, you’ll also see artists such as Iggy Pop, Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson going beyond the control of their respective interviewers.

Other uncomfortable moments can simply come from reality, like W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes’ drunken pool interview featured in the 1988 documentary The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years. Speaking of intoxicated musicians, Ozzy Osbourne is visibly wasted later on in these 10 Rock + Metal Interviews Gone Wrong, as is Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious as he constantly doses off, much to the chagrin of girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

These are just a few pieces of our 10 Rock + Metal Interviews Gone Wrong video, so check out the full Loud List in the player above! Also, make sure to watch more Loud Lists below!
