Stage diving is an art. An art that involves a lot of epic fails. An art that boasts some athletic accidents. An art that is death-defying. In honor of the most epic and accomplished stage dives, committed by the likes of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Slipknot's Sid Wilson, Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix and Boy Hits Car, watch this video mashup of some of the best. BTW, you might be thinking "Boy Hits Who?" But the band released music on Wind Up Records in the early '00s and someone in the band once dropped 68 feet into a crowd. Yikes! Take the plunge.
