Outragous Acts - MC5
Considered today to be 'punk' before there was a name for it, the MC5 did quite a number of provacative acts on and off stage. One act was wearing nothing but American flags out by a street and swearing. The CD tray of my copy of 'The Big Bang! The Best of the MC5' has a picture of a band member pulling his pants down to reveal his butt crack. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Kick Out the Jams, MFs!
Fake songwriting credits - Elvis Presley

Flip-It Book - Phil Collins
Phil is one of the greatest entertainers of the past 50 years - whether in bands like Flaming Youth, Genesis, Band Aid or Brand X; as a session player or as a solo artist. His 'box set' 'Plays Well With Others' is a 4-CD set of songs from the whole spectrum, from 'Guide Me Orion' from the 1969 album 'Ark 2' by Flaming Youth, to hits such as Frida from ABBA, to Band Aid in 1984, to his jazz combo to Prince's Trust benefits and more. The album is set up like a book with pouches for the CDs and text w/ pictures in between of Phil's illustrious career. On the bottom right corner of each right page there is a hand drawn picture of Phil playing his drums and whistling. If you flip this 'book' you can see it happen in motion! Give it a try.

Pink flamingos on his album covers - Christopher Cross
Beginning with his self-titled debut album, the former Christopher Charles Geppert had a tendency to adorn his album covers with images of pink flamingos rather than, say, photographs of himself. His net-site even incorporates the pink flamingo into its navigation directions.

Getting Punched in the Face by Jack White. - The Von Bondies
The main singer of the Von Bondies, Jason Stollsteimer, was at a Detroit club in 2003 in support of a local band when Jack White wanted to speak to him. Stollsteimer refused, so White pinned him to a speaker and punched him in the face multiple times, even getting angered at Stollsteimer's unwillingness to fight. White was later charged to take anger management classes, as well as being fined. Stollsteimer left with a ridiculously mangled face, including a swollen right eye and a bloody nose. White had formerly produced the Von Bondies' debut album from 2001, "Lack Of Communication", and felt that the fight was a publicity stunt for their 2004 album "Pawn Shoppe Heart".
