Outrageous Tour Pranks

Green Day and Blink-182's Rite of Passage

Among the least surprising pranksters on this list are pop-punkers Blink-182 and Green Day. In 2002, the two bands teamed up to terrorize opening act Jimmy Eat World. As frontman Jim Adkins recounted to, Blink-182 struck first by setting off pyrotechnics and explosions during one of Jimmy Eat World’s quieter songs. That was followed by members of both bands rushing the stage and drenching Jimmy Eat World with Super Soakers. Moments later, they unleashed a blizzard of potato flakes and glitter from the rafters, thoroughly coating the hapless opening act. (Photos: Jason Kempin, Getty Images)
