Anything that you are not prepared for is bad. On the other hand, if you are well conditioned, I think they could be a very valuable excercise. I know Coach Sommer uses them in his book BtGB.
If someone who cannot do a proper pullup does them, he has a higher chance for injury, than someone who has been doing for a while.

Before behind the neck, you should try Wide grip and Wide grip L-pull ups. Once that is easy, you can try those, but start easy and listen to your body for an signs of discomfort.

x2 Be prepared. I cant do them though, due to previous injury.
