Friday Fun: The Most Obnoxious Artist… Ever?

John Mayer was in the news this week, trying to smooth over the bad press that erupted over an interview he did with “Playboy” in which he used the n-word and revealed more details about his sex life than most people probably wanted to know. And that got us to thinking: Who is the most obnoxious music artist of all time?

Could it be Axl Rose? Surely there’s plenty of evidence suggesting the Guns N’ Roses frontman could qualify for this dubious honor, but what about other artists, such as Kanye West, guitar slinger Ted Nugent or queen of online rants Courtney Love? During the past few years each performer has contributed something to the public’s casual music consciousness that almost screams out, “Look at me! I’m obnoxious!”
