Ridiculous tour riders -- most famous acts have 'em. | Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin

Ridiculous tour riders are really hot right now. Between the news of Lady Gaga, Jay-Z and Beyonce's peculiar and extravagant on-the-road demands, there's been a renaissance of the rider, which had all but vanished from the public consciousness since the golden age of rock and roll.

But when super rich and famous people are subjected to constant travel, they still ask for some pretty horrible (amazing?) things. Artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin decided to make these riders into art. Photographing the artists' requests -- with some help from typography wiz Lorenzo Faton -- was a smart move, as they're even more entertaining to look at than read about.

Take a look below and tell you which ones are your favorite. We're partial to Lady Gaga's penchant for "non-smelly, non-sweaty cheese" on ice (it's like a battle between physics and logic!), the Foo Fighter's taste for "big ass kielbasas that make men feel self-conscious" and Axl Rose's love of "fresh Wonder bread (white) and Dom Perignon."
