It has always fascinated me why some kooky concertgoers would want to test a music artist’s manhood by stepping up to the musician aggressively or with total disrespect – while he’s onstage. Why, why, why would you give a music artist your hard-earned money and then give him your right jaw to play with?

Some audience members, pumped up on machismo, stupidity and liquor-fueled egos, are willing to take a music artist there. And, in the following examples, concertgoers were made examples of in a rather painful and humiliating way: the unnamed aggressors became YouTube stars – while lying on their backs.

Below are six ways to get trounced onstage at a concert. Let these examples serve as a reminder to check yourself before trying to check an artist while he’s working onstage.
