Metal Band Lordi Caught Lip Syncing at Concert

This is the Milli Vanilli of metal.

I’m sure this is every band’s worst nightmare when lip syncing or using backing tracks. Lordi is a Finnish metal band that’s been around since 1996. This goofy masked band was performing at a huge music festival when their backing track started to skip. Looks like this happened back in 2006 and just surfaced a couple months ago. This is what you get when you can’t pull it off live.

I have no sympathy for any band that does this and you’d be surprised how bands actually do this crap.

Lordi explains what apparently happened here:

“This was something that we could not help. We always play live on our concerts and festivals etc, BUT: I´m sorry to break anyone´s bubble here; when you´re doing live TV, it is more than usual for the tv station and/or the organisation behind the event being televised live, DEMAND the artist to do playback. This is mainly done to ease the tv people´s job. No soundchecks, no monitors or mixing needed. And to be sure that the band “plays” correctly, and of course in some countries, to avoid the artist cursing or saying anything ‘politically incorrect’.”
