The Most Uncomfortable Rock + Metal Interviews Ever

There’s something timeless about an uncomfortable interview. Whether it’s an incompetent interviewer, an annoyed performer, or illicit substances on either side, moments like these are shared and discussed for decades.

KISS found itself receiving backlash after an awkward encounter with a South American interviewer. The reporter wore an Iron Maiden shirt during his interview with the band, and before the conversation even began, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons protested the man’s choice of dress. In the end, Simmons pressured the interviewer into wearing a KISS shirt, creating an uncomfortable high school bullying dynamic.

Courtney Love’s ill-fated encounter with Madonna at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards has to be one of the most surreal moments in television history. No doubt struggling with drug addiction and the death of her husband Kurt Cobain the previous year, Courtney Love interrupted a live interview with Madonna by throwing her compact at the pop star’s head.

Courtney ended up crashing the interview, chasing Madonna away as a visually annoyed Kurt Loder was forced to continue talking with Love. The Hole singer ended up burying her face in her chair while claiming that she had slept with Ted Nugent in the past.

Check out the most uncomfortable interviews of all time in the rowdy list below.
