Johnny Cash is one of very few artists to be banned from the Grand Ole Opry. He earned his banishment after smashing the floor lights out with a microphone in 1965.

“I don’t know how bad they wanted me in the first place,”he says, “but the night I broke all the lights on the stage with the microphone stand, they said they couldn’t use me anymore."

Thankfully, the two sides made up before Cash died.
