** Along with his already CrazyAwesome unlearned drum (anti-)technique and pioneering use of massive drum kits in rock, Moon broke his two front teeth diving from his hotel room to an empty swimming pool on his eighteenth birthday, was known for exploding toilets with explosives, throwing TV's out of windows and wrecking hotel rooms (the band were banned from Holiday Inns as a result), crashed through a corrigated iron roof at a Carlton Athletic Arena concert as a grand entrance, was incapacited in the middle of another concert after an near-fatal overdose of animal tranquilizer, crashed his Rolls-Royce (he had no driver's license) into his swimming pool and swam to the surface during a party, and a joke of his that a supergroup he and John Entwistle was to form with Jimmy Page "going down like a lead zeppelin" would lead to Music/LedZeppelin getting its band name. An incident where he unknowingly overloaded his drum kit with explosives during the Who's appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour to the point it singed Pete Townshend's hair and damaged his hearing permanently (Pete partially blames his tinnitus on this event) and causing BetteDavis, who was waiting in the wings, to faint into Mickey Rooney's arms.. Oh, and Animal from Franchise/TheMuppets was based on him. [[TearJerker Unfortunately]], this recklessness might have been the byproduct of being an ADD/hyperactive case; it cost him his marriage, led to his paunchy figure in his last years, and ironically, he died from taking an accidental overdose of the pills he took to cure him of his alcoholism. Moon was taking steps to get his life back together when he died.

* "Tarkus" by EmersonLakeAndPalmer, a [[EpicRocking 30-minute-long]] song about an [[SapientTank armadillo-tank]] that is born from a volcano and fights stuff like a cross between a pterodactyl and a plane, a lizard creature with a rocket launcher for a head, and a manticore.

** Gorillaz as a whole counts. Just ''one'' of their videos features a rapping ghost, dancing zombie gorillas, and a 10-year-old Japanese girl jump-kicking one said gorillas in the face. Plus, the fact that a band can be so successful and ''not even be real'' is Crazy Awesome by itself.

** Lady Gaga is so tired and hackneyed; Madonna was far more of a rule-breaker and pioneer than Lady Gaga ever could, and Madonna didn't even have to lie about the great life adversity she faced (Madonna's was losing her mom at an early age and being raised by an extremely strict father). No, if you want true musical originality by someone who was really both crazy and awesome, you have to go back to TheSeventies and TheEighties for Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich, two true musical originals and heroes for outsider women everywhere.

* 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.
