Spank Rock

"Spank Rock's set at Siren wasn't a concert. It was a dance party. A couple songs in, MC Spank Rock (Naeem Juwan) invited the crowd behind the barrier to come dance in the pit. Mind you, this was after he brought people on stage to dance. It seemed the group would stop at nothing to turn the ex-Coney Island parking lot into a club. The crowd was definitely on Spank Rock's side, gaining energy after a long day of standing in the sun. Rapping in stride with a playful cadence and constant grins, the group, led primarily by Juwan, turned the boardwalk on its bad side (that's the good kind of bad, Mom)." [Knox Rd]
More Siren pics HERE. More of Spank Rock, including one of security taking him off the stage, and of a guy that mooned the crowd from the stage (NSFW), below...

Spank Rock is a joke, easily the weakest link in a strong Siren lineup this year.

Yeah. I was dissappointed to hear he was headlining. He doesn't even seem relevant anymore. Guess all the good acts were playing other festivals.

Ugly people making vulgar music so assholes can put it on their iPods and make it seem like they have "depth" in their tastes?

Sorry, Peaches already beat you to that. And she's better than you. Frowny face.
