Queensrÿche frontman Geoff Tate, who possesses one of the biggest voices in rock music, offered a verbal jab at the Rocklahoma crowd over the Memorial Day weekend.

A YouTube clip is circulating in which the singer is seen and heard addressing the crowd, telling the assemblage of rock fans that it sucked. He also pointed out YOLO – you only live once- in order to get the crowd’s energy up!

“My God! This is Rocklahoma, huh?,” Tate asked with a smile while walking across the stage on Sunday (May 27). “I think we played here two years ago. I think it, maybe, was a different crowd. You guys suck. I’m serious. C’mon! I know it’s Sunday. You’ve gotta go to work tomorrow. You’re gonna let that stop ya? My God! You only live once, man. This is all there is. There ain’t nothing else. This is your chance. This is it. This is all there is. It doesn’t get any better than this. That’s right. Anyway, nice to be here on a Sunday.”

Given the fact that it was Memorial Day Weekend, a large portion of the crowd likely had off from work on Monday and should have been celebrating extra hard with the ‘Ryche!

Check out video footage of the verbal jab below.
