Lip Sync Rebels feat: Nirvana, Iron Maiden And More…

Sometimes when bands play live, they have the audacity to demand to be allowed to play their own instruments and sing their own songs.

Not all stages are willing to give in to these [sarcasm] outrageous [/sarcasm] requests.

Here’s how some of our favorite artists reacted to being forced to lip sync their own tunes.


Nirvana


Top of the Pops refused to let [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nirvana[/lastfm] play their own instruments and the result is outrageous. Cobain was allowed to do the vocals, but his tone is mocking throughout. Hilarious performance.

David Grohl on the drums is just ridiculous as well.


On the next page, Iron Maiden rebels against lip syncing and the first ever recorded rebellion by the Box Tops in 1967.

Lip Sync Rebels are musicians who are pushed to the edge onstage when told they can’t play their own instruments or sing their own songs. Here we honor those musicians who heard those words and said, “Screw you, we’re gonna have some fun!”



Iron Maiden’s Joke


[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Iron Maiden[/lastfm] decided to have a little fun when they appeared on German television show P.I.T. back in 1986. When told they’d be playing unplugged instruments and mics, the band came up with this performance.



The Box Tops – The Letter (1967)


These guys may have been the first Lip Sync Rebels in history. From back in 1967, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Box Tops[/lastfm] have a bit of fun (especially the keyboard player) performing on national television.



Seeing all these Lip Sync Rebels reminded us of a certain SNL skit…click on to see what it is.

Watch it and you’ll see why it reminded us of the lip sync rebels.


That’s it for Lip Sync Rebels so remember kids, if you ever become a world-famous musician and are forced to lip sync, just think about these rebels did and make us proud.
