(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Now that summer is behind us, that means the very worst people you see at summer music festivals are gone, too. You'd think. But just for some Friday fun, came across this list of those fine folks you love to hate. You know the ones. The guy doing interpretive dance. The teenagers with no concept of behaving in a crowd or, as this list describes them, "They live to irritate everyone around them to the point of rioting, and won't let a slow song stop them from randomly elbowing you in the back of the head." The grizzled Woodstock veteran (who might also possibly be Ben or Jerry). And as always, a music-fest staple, the guy passed out drunk before the headliner's opener even takes the stage. Those are just a few of my favorites from the list. See if you recognize any of these people, and tell us who your best "worsts" are.
