10 Best Stage Falls Caught On Video

10 Best Stage Falls Caught On Video
Jena Ardell

Humans love watching things fall down. When a duck slips on ice, we're tickled. When a friend trips while walking, we're in tears. When a well-known musician slips down a set of stairs, we're searching for footage of the best angle.

By now we've all watched the video below of Grohl stumbling off stage during a Foo Fighters show in Sweden on Friday, breaking his leg. Even if you're not a fan of Grohl, you have to give him mad props for being a badass; who else breaks their leg on stage and then returns to rock out on crutches?!

We send our well wishes to the Foo's frontman and wish him a speedy recovery. Here's a collection of 10 of the best stage falls to amuse you masochists (and to remind Grohl he's in good company).

10. Busta Rhymes may be getting a little too old to headbang. The rapper suffered minor injuries at Webster Hall in New York last year after he fell off the stage. Be glad you didn't 'Break Ya Neck', Busta!

9. Scott Weiland fell off a Cincinnati stage in 2010, spurring rumors that the singer lip-syncs. (Weiland later addressed those rumors). The singer resembled McDonald's Hamburglar dastardly making a failed exit.

8. U2's The Edge accidentally walked offstage in Vancouver last month. The seemingly slow-motion fall had fans in disbelief. "Did he actually just... fall?!" someone asks in the video below.

7. Steven Tyler's fall at a 2009 South Dakota show caused the band to postponed its next concert. Maybe if Tyler wasn't showing-off, he wouldn't have lost his balance.

6. In 2013, Skrillex ran into a stage prop in Mexico City. Yeouch.
