You think this is disturbing?

Although I don’t believe rock ‘n roll has provided any photographs as disturbing as the most disturbing images we’ve seen published from wars, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and so forth, it has produced its own collection of disturbing images that, once seen, are forever burned in the viewer’s mind. Before you click on any of the following linked images, please beware that, although safe for work,  they may cause the viewer irreparable harm, or at the least a crisis in the viewer’s faith in rock ‘n roll.

For all but our youngest readers, it’s too late to put this horse back in the barn.

As has been well documented in these hallowed halls there are the moving images that spring from this epic fail.

Here’s a shot not even the harshest of Godfathers deserves.

On the next page are some images that are not so safe for most workplaces. These tap into rock ‘n roll’s long tradition of shock value.

  1. I only posted it yesterday or the day before so maybe it’s just fresh in my mind but I find this profoundly disturbing:

    Many people found the ick factor on this one too high:

  3. Bowie in his forgotten character – the Office Supplies Manager. He’s the one with the camera

  4. Suburban kid

    Pretty much any photo of Shane MacGowan.…0.0…1ac.1.fv6o3cEzR70

  5. That’s funny! Dig the Michael Caine specs.

  6. Ha, I was expecting the cover of Two Virgins.

    Mod, I remember that disturbing photo! What I don’t remember is who it features. Perhaps you could share?

  8. I don’t recall the legend providing a specific name of a disco. I think these were just anonymous NYC disco folks.
