* One of the most Crazy Awesome performances ever was by a band otherwise mostly regarded as being between good and awesome: the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's performance of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbwxLGohUM0 "2 Kindsa Love"]] on the Australian Saturday morning kids' show ''Recovery'' in September 1997. The song starts out high energy enough, but they were so excited about being on TV at all that frontman Spencer got (in his own words) "caught up in the moment" and went ''batshit insane'', playing a theremin solo, grabbing the camera and singing into it, making several excursions into the audience bellowing "BLUES ARE NUMBER ONE!", giving one of the hosts a lap dance, jumping up and down on the furniture, restarting the song when it had finished and winding it all up by trashing the set. The crowd of teenagers loved it and the host, Dylan Lewis, looked almost traumatised.

* One of the most Crazy Awesome performances ever was by a band otherwise mostly generally regarded as being between good and awesome: no more than good-to-awesome: the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's performance of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbwxLGohUM0 com/watch?v=ViSgLo57680 "2 Kindsa Love"]] on the Australian Saturday morning kids' show ''Recovery'' in September 1997. The band had never been on TV before (because in their native USA, they just weren't famous enough) and were very excited. The song starts out pretty high energy enough, energy, but they were so excited about being on TV at all that frontman then singer Jon Spencer got (in his own words) "caught up in the moment" and went ''batshit insane'', playing a theremin solo, grabbing the camera and singing into it, making several excursions into the audience bellowing "BLUES ARE NUMBER ONE!", ONE!" over and over again, giving one of the hosts a lap dance, jumping up and down on the furniture, restarting the song when it had finished and winding it all up by trashing the set. The crowd of teenagers loved it and the host, Dylan Lewis, looked almost traumatised.

-->'''Dylan Lewis''': [''waves arms helplessly, giggling like a maniac''] YES! YEEESSSS! THE BLUES EXPLOSION! [''moans wordlessly for a few seconds''] Rock and roll is alive! Rock and roll is alive! And it was alive in this studio, Recovery, you saw it live, that was the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Nothing more to say.

* Definitely Music/MaximumTheHormone. Besides their famous themes for ''Manga/DeathNote'', their hit [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQup5XWqxKg "Koi No Mega Lover"]] mixes DeathMetal with JPop and punk rock into one track. Bizarre and eyebrow raising? Yeah. Simultaneously insane and epic? Hell yes.

* [[DeadKennedys Jello Biafra]]. This guy randomly ran for mayor of San Francisco in 1979. Part of his political platform was (among more serious proposals): forcing businessmen to wear clown suits within city limits, erecting statues of Dan White (who assassinated Mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978) all over town and allowing the parks department to sell eggs and tomatoes with which people could pelt them, and a citywide ban on cars (this [[ItMakesSenseInContext wasn't that extreme]] - San Francisco was suffering from a horrendous pollution problem). He came in fourth place. Also, he was the leader of the DeadKennedys, probably the most crazy awesome band punk rock ever witnessed.

* Music/OzzyOsbourne, through his entire life. His escapades include: Biting the head off a bat, biting the head off of two doves at a meeting with record execs, pissing on the Alamo, shooting all of his chickens and lighting their remains on fire, giving a Great Dane cocaine (which made it expel every particle of shit in its body and frantically run around for three days straight), snorting a line of ants, asking Betty Ford where the bar is at the Betty Ford Clinic and blacking out, obliviously pissing out the window of Music/DefLeppard's dressing room onto the fans lined up to get in, taking a shit in the elevator of a posh hotel and waking up in the middle of a busy interstate miles from his previous location. The cap to all of this is getting in a wild man contest with MotleyCrue and winning by appearing on stage stone drunk wearing a dress, lifting up the dress to reveal white tighty whities and screaming "LETS GO FUCKING CRAZY!". After that tour everyone involved had to go to a treatment center.

* The Rev from Music/AvengedSevenfold [[TooCoolToLive was]] this in spades. Just check the CrowningMomentOfFunny entry on their page or look up some videos of him. Hell, just look at some of the songs he wrote, both in Music/AvengedSevenfold and with Pinkly Smooth, which could have competed with {{Primus}} in terms of CrazyAwesome, [[AuthorExistenceFailure if only they could have continued.]]

** GloryHammer takes it to a new level. The first album is about an undead unicorn invasion, the second about the demon wars raging across the galaxy in the distant future of 1992. And the band plays in full costume.

* [[Music/NinjaSexParty "Ninja Brian" Wecht]]. A professor of theoretical physics at the University of London and diversely talented musician who dresses up as a ninja as part of a comedy band, [[WebVideo/GameGrumps plays video games on the internet]], and makes so many buttsex jokes on Twitter that buttsex.info redirects to the Ninja Sex Party Twitter feed. Also, [[WebVideo/HotPepperGaming he once went for three minutes without blinking after eating a hot pepper, and then flipped off the camera]].

* Both members of {{Angelspit}}. These are the guys who created a music video about a secret society devoted to cannibalism and vivisection, regularly use synths to fuck songs up beyond belief, ''built their own instrument and subsequently destroyed it for the purposes of recording the sounds it made while being destroyed'', made some awesome music out of a salad bowl and a lampshade, and instead of simply making a video asking for video entries from those who wished to be their new videographer, created a video where [=ZooG=] killed the old videographer, asked for video entries, and finished the vid with 'I need a knife, a fork, and an oven built for one. Happy New fucking Year!'
