Rock Rants: The 10 Most Epic Musician Meltdowns Ever Caught On Tape


4. Barry White’s Radio Spot Fail

He’s known for seducing our eardrums with his velvety baritone, but we get to see a different side of Barry during these outtakes for a radio ad. Try as he might, he can’t seem to nail the take. It just gets funnier as he gets more and more flustered.

Highlights: “Paul Quinn college cordially — s–tty — cordially invites your ass to come on down.”

“This asshole f–ked these words up, man. I mean he’s got words that he don’t even need.”

“F–K this s–t!”

F-Bomb Count: 6


3. Kanye Pulls A Kanye

There are no shortage of Yeezy freakouts to choose from. From his infamous anti-Bust outburst during the Hurricane Katrina telethon, the Taylor Swift incident, the Matt Lauer faceoff on The Today Show, and let’s not forget mid-concert meltdowns. But our personal favorite is this “secret” tape taken while Kanye was having dinner with his friends immediately following the 2009 VMAs (that’s the T-Swift one).

Highlights: “What the f–ck was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f–k Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform ‘Heartless.’”
