General TV & Media Avatar Contest: Crimes Against Music

Thanks again to everyone who took part and voted in the last (very close) avatar contest.

This week's challenge is quite an unusual one: the theme is Crimes Against Music - in other words, the worst songs, the worst singing and instrumental performances, and the very worst in music you can think of.

It can be a truly awful song, a cheesy and terrible musical segment in a film or TV show or video game, a performer whose tone-deafness and ineptitude at musical instrumentation hasn't stopped them from forging out a career in the recording industry, or a particularly notorious and ear-shattering performance of the worst kind... you name it, but don't try to sing it.

Just remember: the more awful the avatar, the better!

I'll open this one up until Friday afternoonish, then we'll start a poll for the following weekend.

Obvious, but needs to be done


Actually, I may animate this - I've seen a couple of appropriate pics that might go with it to make an animation, but I'll have to test for the picture quality first.

I'll let you handle the replies on that one.

Mind you, I think I'm going to get a lot of hate for doing this one:

I guess this is more like a 'crime against guitars'

These are all great entries so far. Still open for more entries - the more the better.

(And believe me, there are plenty more musical atrocities out there...)
