Daryl Braithwaite failed to impress footy fans as he performed at the AFL Grand Final Breakfast in Melbourne on Saturday.
The 74-year-old took to the stage to perform his iconic song Horses before the highly anticipated game between the Brisbane Lions and Collingwood Football Club.
But many viewers flocked to Twitter to slam the singer’s performance.
‘When did Daryl Braithwaite and Horses become a fixture at sporting events and why?’ one person questioned.

Another one wrote: ‘Ugh that was cringe @FOXFOOTY #darylbraithwaite.’
‘Daryl Braithwaite just had his Meatloaf moment #foxfooty #grandfinalbreakfast,’ one commented, comparing it to the disastrous Meat Loaf performance during the 2011 Grand Final.
However, some fans praised the singer with one writing: ‘Daryl Braithwaite smashing it with the Horses at the NMGF Breakfast. If only Margaret Urlich were still with us.’
Meanwhile, Meat Loaf’s appearance at the AFL grand final in 2011 was the subject of controversy at the time due to the musician’s subpar show.
Despite his legendary rock status, his performance during the halftime show copped heavy criticism due to his vocal struggles and erratic behaviour on stage.
The event remains a notable moment in AFL Grand Final history, often sparking discussions about the choice of halftime entertainment.
The ageing rocker fired back at the time, calling the AFL ‘the cheapest people I’ve ever seen in my life’ before blaming a hemorrhaging vocal cord for his abysmal show.

Meanwhile, rock band KISS received a mixed reception as they took to the AFL Grand Final stage on Saturday to headline the pre-game performance.
The rock legends, led by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, put on an astounding performance filled with pyrotechnics as they belted out their biggest hits.
While many fans sung their praises of the music icons, others were less than impressed as they accused the musicians of ‘lip syncing’ and ‘miming’ their songs.
