Top 10 Spitters In Music History (w/ VIDEO)
Spitting. It's gross in any language or culture -- a sign of disrespect that garners admiration or adoration from no one. Well, except for fans. Stars and celebrities themselves get mighty pissed off if you spit on them, but if they spit on you, you better just grin and take it.

That's why we decided to look at the Top 10 spitters in music history -- there's almost no other context where spitting is so ubiquitous and so widely accepted and well-received. Somehow fans see it as a form of communication or bond between themselves and a star.
10. Roger Waters
Why so low on this list? After all, Waters' famous spitting incident was a major inspiration for Pink Floyd's The Wall. In 1977, Waters got angry at fans who weren't paying attention to the music and spit on them.
He realized how big of a "barrier" had been put up between himself and his fans by that point and went to work on a story about it. Unfortunately, we only have audio of the incident, so it's not as much fun. Waters joked about it in Montreal 33 years later.
9. Ronnie Radke (Falling in Reverse)
While I hesitate to call Falling in Reverse front man Ronnie Radke "talented" at anything, I have to admit that he can talk some shit, especially to fans of his "rivals," synthcore band I See Stars. Here he does them one better while they heckle him at a show.
8. Amy Winehouse
The dearly departed Amy Winehouse could spit with the best of them, as she proved to a couple of paparazzi who wouldn't stop following her and asking her about X-Factor. They are, unfortunately, completely undeterred by the action.
