The ten biggest concert buzzkills
Noah Van Sciver
8. The Maniac
Occasionally you'll run into this dude (and we say dude here because, well, it's mostly dudes) at the occasional indie rock or hip-hop show, but mostly you'll find him at mainstream metal shows. You'll know him when you see him. He's the one with his shirt off pacing like a caged animal, clamoring for the music to begin. And whoo boy, once it does, look out! Hide your wife, hide your kids, as Antoine Dodson would say. It's like this guy's been suppressing his anger his entire life and just waiting to someone, anyone -- C'mon! Fucking bring it already! Grrr! -- to crush. This gent is not to be mistaken for those taking part in this time-honored tradition of expression, but rather this uber violent steakhead is simply spoiling for a fight -- sweaty, adrenalized, all fists flying fueled by blind, misdirected rage.
