** The stage sets for the Smell the Glove tour were supposed to be pretty elaborate. However, since Tap is clearly on the way down, their label isn't willing to put a lot of money behind their tour. One concert has most of the band members in something resembling a chrysalis. Derek's doesn't open when it's supposed to and he spends almost the entire song trapped inside it. But that ''pales'' in comparison to their set for the song Stonehenge. It was intended to be a full-size replica, but at some point the person labeling the concept sketch thought that " was the abbreviation for ''feet'', so they wind up with a Stonehenge "in serious danger of being crushed by a dwarf".

* Music/{{Lordi}}. First of all every member of the band has an elaborate monster costume. When they participated in the EurovisionSongContest in 2006 (which they won, by the way), there was some discussion about would their pyrotechnics be safe to use. They got to use them in the end. Videos of their song "Hard Rock Hallelujah" are easy to find on Youtube, though the compression quality is likely to render them as bloody vomit.

* The BlueOysterCult pioneered the use of lasers onstage to enhance a performance. This was in 1975, some years before MTV, an age where most groups stuck to music only. The band's laser equipment was cumbersome and frequently unreliable, but when it worked, it was spectacular. It even provoked a Congressional investigation into how safe lasers were as a form of entertainment.
