You probably didn't even realize it because no one was talking about it on Facebook or anything, but Wednesday was 12/12/12, or "Dia de tres docenas," as it's called by absolutely no one. History has proven that same-digit dates and benefit concerts taste delicious together, so with the victims of Hurricane Sandy sorely in need of philanthropic rock, some of the biggest names in music came together to play songs for a good cause.
Of course, like any other event that collects as many famous people as possible under one roof, the overall heartwarming and positive vibe of the night was often interrupted by moments of top shelf celebrity buffoonery. Here are a few of those moments.

The lead-up to the 121212 Concert was littered with talk of a Nirvana reunion. Followers of the most basic elements of life and death will recognize that scenario as logistically impossible. But it was really happening, and the man chosen to fill the dilapidated Chuck Taylors of Kurt Cobain was, naturally ... Sir Paul McCartney? Video of the offending incident is being quickly scrubbed from existence online, but Huffington Post still has it, because video rights are way more affordable when you don't pay your employees.
