View Photo Gallery

It’s difficult for bands to stand the test of time and stay intact. They’ve got all sorts of factors stacked against them, including breakups, premature deaths, and brutal band dismissals, plus folks who are just tired of the rock ‘n’ roll game and straight up quit. But then there are the guys who are still out there playing the hits, despite the fact that they’re the only original members left in their group!

View Photo Gallery

Getting fired is always horrible, but it’s especially bad when you’re getting sacked from a rock band. We’ve already told you about bad boys who got the boot from their world famous groups, and dudes who were kicked out just when the band about to break big onto the world stage. But those horror stories pale in comparison to these brutal band dismissals!

The 10 Biggest Badasses In Heavy Metal + Hard Rock!

View Photo Gallery

The classic adage about rock star excess is “sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.” Let’s be honest though, that just scratches the surface of the lifestyle. There’s so much more between the lines. And although all rock stars partake in “the life” to some degree, some take it to a whole ‘nother level. These folks are legends and rock icons. The people who are about as famous for their behavior as their music. Rock n’ roll is in their blood (along with all sorts of other chemicals and toxins). It’s not forced; it’s just who they are. They DO take everything to the extreme. They DO get arrested and start fights for completely ridiculous reasons. They DO have residencies at rehab facilities. They DO have wild stories that seem to be myths. And maybe they are, but who cares? From Lemmy to Ozzy to Danzig, here’s a list of heavy metal and hard rock’s 10 biggest badasses of all time. The girls want them and the guys want to be them. Oh, some girls want to be them too (exhibit A: Wendy O. Williams).
