* 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!'

** [[Music/DragonForce OUR SWORDS ARE MADE]] [[CaptainObvious OF STEEEEL]].[[note]]Well ok, swords can be made of IIIRROOONN or BRROOOONNZZE or even, in some parts of the world, OOOBSSIIIDIIIAAANN, but that's beside the point.[[/note]]

* Related to the above is West Germany's answer to Lovich, Nina Hagen. She's completely, utterly, totally batshit in her vocal stylings, fashion sense, and mannerisms ([[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8Vh2dYYNTyU here's just one example]]), and she managed to combine all of it into music that was, and still is, revolutionary. There's a reason she's considered the Godmother of Punk, and one of the musicians that founded modern gothic rock.

* Music/DevinTownsend. Having lots of [[CreatorBreakdown breakdowns]] during his career and being able to survive through every one of them? Check. [[CursedWithAwesome Channeling his mental problems torward his music and making them awesome]]? Check. (Seemingly) getting rid of his drug problems and some mental illnesses and finding out his songs can be even more awesome when his mind is clearer? Check. And showing us that's true? Check. DevinTownsend had a career of 16 albums he produced himself, including Ziltoid The Omniscient, on which he has done almost EVERYTHING, including the 5+ voices featured, and more are on the way. Oh, and he has bipolar disorder.

** 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 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.

* [[Music/Gorillaz Murdoc Niccals from Gorillaz]] fits this to a T, especially come Phase 3 where he manages to kidnap the band's singer, assemble a small army of collaborators, and build a cyborg version of the band's guitarist (who was missing and presumed dead at the time) all for the sake of making the album! [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk This doesn't stop him from being a complete and utter sod, though.]]

* American singer Lena Lovich, who in terms of dress sense was the Lady Gaga of her day and had a vocal range to match Kate Bush, probably best known for her 1979 hit ''Lucky Number''.
