Bands Gone Wild: 10 Outrageous Rock Performances Caught On Live TV

9. The Vines Freak Out David Letterman (2003)

Although their freakout on UK’s Later… with Jools Holland is also pretty awesome, the concerned look on Letterman’s face after viewing Craig Nicholls’ spastic stage antics is priceless. Ordinarily he makes a point to walk over and shake hands with the bands after their set. But this time it looked like he was a little worried about venturing too close!

 

10. Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl “Wardrobe Malfunction” (2004)

Yeah, we had to…The incident forever known as “Nipplegate” cost CBS a record breaking $550,000 fine from the FCC (although it was voided in a 2011 appeal), and caused a whole host of legal headaches. But most importantly, it gave us the phrase “wardrobe malfunction.”
