Its been tested and busted on mythbusters, but I have questioned on their forum about their testing techniques. I don't believe that there is a single frequency that holds the so called brown note, but a possibility of a number of frequencies that correspond to an individual's body and in particular the digestive tract's resonant frequency. I think hitting that frequency with an insane amount of spl will hold the key. The problem with their testing is they hit 150 db or so above the tuning frequency of PA subwoofers in an open parking lot and below the tuning (port plugs in) they only did about 107 db at 7 or 8 hz. This sounds like a lot but at that frequency it really isn't. Most diy subwoofer builders can hit that in their rooms at home. If they were able to do 150 or 160 at 7 or 8 hz (not an easy task at all) then if it is possible it may happen. Lot of factors involved.
As far as weird music, check out some gg allin. Music isn't terribly weird but he has some just straight odd lyrics. He was probably certifiably insane with his onstage antics.
