G.G. Allin

You just gotta love the no-holes-barred insanity of G.G. Allin. Part of his charm is the fact that his antics are so unreal, so extreme, and so offensive. Watch the last video where he was on Jerry Springer. Hehehehe!

NOTICE: His music and antics are not for everyone. Don’t watch if you have a delicate sensibility. There is a certain amount of filth in these videos.

Here is an excerpt from wikipedia.com. You can read the rest here.

Kevin Michael "GG" Allin (August 29, 1956 – June 28, 1993) was an American punk rock singer-songwriter who performed and recorded with many punk groups during his career. Allin is best remembered for his notorious live performances which typically featured wildly transgressive acts, such as Allin defecating and urinating onstage, rolling in feces and often consuming excrement, performing naked, committing self-injury, and attacking audience members. Although more notorious for his stage antics than for his music, he recorded prolifically, not only in the punk rock genre, but also in spoken word, country, and more traditional-style rock. His extremely politically incorrect lyrics, which often covered subjects such as misogyny, pedophilia and racism, created varied opinions of him within the highly politicized punk community. Though he had a devoted cult following, Allin's music was often poorly recorded and has received mostly negative reviews from critics.[1][2][3] However, his status as a cult figure is such that a number of bands have covered his songs. Among them, the 69 Eyes have covered "Gimme Some Head," and Beck has covered "Tough Fucking Shit."

GG Allin was always pretty fucked up. Supposedly he wanted to commit suicide by shoving a lit stick of dynamite up his ass and then jumping into a crowd during a show, but on the night he had planned to do it he OD'd on heroin. That's just hearsay, though...
Don't know if you watched the next to the last video or not, but it is a talk show, and on the other side of the stage was Michael Alig, the club kid who killed and dismemeberd his drug dealer. And during the show, people were more concerned about G.G. Allin than Alig. Go figure.
