Angry about their sub-par Pitchfork review, Deer Tick decided to lash back at the taste-making site, reviewing the review of their album, The Black Dirt Sessions and posting their “Bitchfork” review on their Facebook. Kind of funny, mostly hissy-fitty.
3. Patrick Wolf attacks stage crew
Even better: Later, Patrick Wolf refused to apologize for any of it.

1. Cat Power’s whole tour of meltdowns
Chan Marshall of Cat Power’s onstage ridiculousness is pretty much legendary at this point. The distinction between fable and truth is a bit blurred in the Cat Power crazy epic, but what is known for certain is that in the mid-’00s, Chan Marshall would “treat” her audience to some sort of bat-shit display on an almost nightly basis. Ranging from rants about the KKK to mutterings under her breath about “bad vibes” while poorly improvising music to singing a Chinese restaurant’s menu word for word, Cat Power rarely failed to disappoint those hoping to see an indie trainwreck. For her consistency and dedication to baffling skinny jeans-wearing audiences, Cat Power wins the top spot in our canon of indie-rock hissyfits.
