My first real band Day 9 (RIP 1999-2002) really was an experience in amateurism. We played badly, we performed badly, and we even took bad photos to promote ourselves. We didn't know any better, and it was a memorable experience.
A few years ago, I found this website called Rock And Roll Confidential that has a section called the hall of douchebags. Basically, they go through a bunch of real band promo shots and make fun of them.
I found a hidden gem! One of our old promo shots is in the hall of douchebags! When I originally found this, I laughed my ass off!
Here's the link. And please, look at the other shots while you're there! It's a pretty funny site, and you may even find yourself there!
P.S.- I'm the douchebag on the left with black hair wearing the tool shirt. lol!
