Craig Rosen of Launch.com caught up with the Used lead singer Bert McCracken and guitarist Quinn Allman. Bert was asked about his reputation for puking onstage. “I don’t [deliberately] puke onstage. Never have, never will, never,” he said. “No, I don’t puke onstage. There have been times… I mean, when I move around onstage, it’s like running a mile and I just get so exhausted, and then when I try to scream there has been times where I vomited all over the stage, but it tears up my vocal chords so much I have to scream and sing the rest of the show with vomit in my throat. I mean, a lot of kids come to the show and go, ‘Are you going to vomit?’ It’s not a gimmick, so if you want to see a gimmick go to the vomit circus, ’cause I’m not going to vomit onstage if it all possible. If you get lucky, you might see me puke. I hate to throw up. Do you like to throw up? I hate it. It’s like suffocating.”
