The Mars Volta is one of the single worst live shows I ever saw, they opened for System of a Down and seemed to play one long disjointed jam with Spanish vocals the entire time.

I did eventually see ATDI years and years later and they were much better, although that show was the last one of their tour and they only did 11 or 12 songs at it.

That's funny, because I think I saw them on the same tour and it was the greatest show I had ever seen at that point.

I never understood the love for these guys. They were headliners at a festival and we ended up leaving early.

I enjoy deloused and frances the mute, but I saw these guys in 2003 opening for RHCP and Qotsa and it was terrible. The whole crowd hated it.

To be fair, it wasn't really their fault. The big arena didn't suit them and the show was a month or so before deloused came out so nobody had any clue who they were.

I imagine they'd be awesome in a smaller venue.

We should have a thread about concerts we’ve seen that sucked hard, just to start some fights.

The absolute worst concert I ever saw was the smashing pumpkins on the infinite sadness tour.

Anyway, De-Loused just whooped my ass. Flea on bass. Jon Theodore on drums. Cedric and Omar at their peak.


Yeah this album still rules, far and away their best.

Worst show I've been to was a Godspeed show, but it wasn't their fault. They have the worst fucking fans.

Eluvium was one of the worst shows I've ever seen but I mean, that really is just a guy pressing play on his laptop so what can you expect?

I’m sad about how true this must be

Worst show was probably TV on the Radio. It was an open air festival and their sound levels were all over the place. I imagine they're more of a club band.

I really like the creepy lyrics in FTM and the weird story behind them.
