Before I was a regular open-air concert and festival goer, I used to think that randoms chanting for Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Freebird” was an urban legend. I mean, who would do that at a non-Skynyrd concert? Or at an EDM show? I know some bands do covers from time to time at a live performance, but why is it always that one that’s being requested? But once I started going, it was pretty much every genre and any artist. As if it was a joke. Like why the fuck?
Now, don’t get me wrong, that opening solo sends my heart soaring, and it’s a solid song, but after a while it gets annoying for the audience. It’s even more annoying for the band.
So much so, that one band took a troll to task, in a pretty hilarious way.
These guys are legends.
