[Pick of the Week] 10 Most Outrageous Band Requests

THE TOP 10 Outrageous Band Requests

So this list is not all-inclusive, but it's just a compilation of some of the strangest and ridiculous things that Bands/Artists have demanded. Most of this list was stolen from PopCrunch.com and you can read their full list there.  But here goes, the Top 10 Most Outrageous Band Requests:

#10 ) Snoop Dogg

The ubiquitous canine man requires ice cream, sherbet, cake & pie, and an assortment of fried foods.  I wonder why?

#9) 50 Cent

The money machine rapper who has sold over 15 million albums worldwide allegedly demands a box of CUBAN cigars.  I wonder if anyone honors that request?

#8) DMX

This east coast hip-hop artists demands 3 boxes of condoms and ONE GALLON of Hennessy Cognac.

#7) David Hasselhoff

I don't really consider him a great singer, but maybe some people do?  David is obviously an admirer of himself because he likes a life-size cardboard cutout of himself with him backstage.

#6) Marilyn Manson

Marilyn demands lots of air conditioning, Haribo gummi bears, lots of absinthe, with popcorn & Doritos.  If that doesn't spell a good night, I don't know what does.  Also a bald prostitute with no teeth.  (Allegedly).

#5) Madonna

Madonna has been touring all over the world, and at every venue she demands that a new toilet be installed for her.  Brand new.

#4) Moby

Moby is adamantly against playing in smoking venues.  He also likes lots of extra underwear to be made available to him backstage.

#3) Van Halen

They ask for a bowl of M&Ms with the BROWN M&Ms REMOVED.  Supposedly it's a request to make sure that whichever venue they're playing at is reading the entire contract and adhering to safety issues, but it's a crazy request.  Would you want to be the intern removing the brown m&ms?

#2) Prince

Prince likes to have a physician available at all times...to inject him with vitamin B12.  Also he likes all food items to be covered in a "clear plastic wrap" until he gets to remove it.

#1) Britney Spears

Ms. Spears likes odor free carpet, cable tv, Froot Loops cereal and Pop Tarts.  That doesn't sound too bad, right?  She also demands a private phone line in her dressing room and will fine the promoter $5000 for any unauthorized incoming calls.  Seems a bit harsh, but I guess when you churn out good music like her, you can do anything you want.

Following up

Are there any ridiculous requests you have heard about?

Jennifer Lopez (so I've read) wants dozens of white roses in her dressing room. I'd read about Madonna's 'rider' previously. I guess she's shy about using someone else's potty?

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
