Concerts are usually really fun and entertaining, especially when the anticipation builds as your favorite band hits the stage.

But what happens when the show doesn't meet your expectations? There's nothing worse than leaving the concert venue feeling disappointed or physically hurt (headaches and ringing ears? no thanks).

Here's a list of the top 5 worst concerts I've been to.

    The Cars

    I saw these guys at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, CA in 1988. Introduction. Ninety minute set. Close. That's it. They probably said five words.

    The Scorpions

    I think it was 1985 when I saw these guys. They were just so loud, you couldn't hear what they were doing on stage. I don't remember anything except holding my ears.

    Cheap Trick

    They're a great band to see for special events, like New Year's Eve. But seeing them any other time, you'll get the fast version. They just play the hits and then get out of there.

    Eddie Money

    In his heyday, Eddie Money was great on the big stage. But in his later years, when he played the restaurant circuit, you couldn't help but feel sorry for the guy. And I think a lot of that had to do with the acoustics in the rooms. He was a lot like he is now in those Geico commercials.

    There's only one way to say it: Just plain bad. Chrissie Hynde moves no more than two feet to other side in an entire ninety minute show.
