    Music that makes you want to jump off a balcony...

    Horror leap at Phish concert

    An unhinged concertgoer at the Jones Beach amphitheater hurled himself 25 feet from a balcony onto the seats below last night, officials and witnesses said.
    The 25-year-old man made the terrifying dive at a Phish concert just before 10 p.m., during intermission.
    A helicopter was called, but the victim was rushed by ambulance to Nassau University Medical Center. His condition was unknown.
    No one else was injured.
    "He pushed people out of the way and he jumped; he didn't fall," said concertgoer Merritt Walsh. "It was intentional."
    A female fan said, "I was sitting two rows behind from here he hit. He hit a chair and he broke the back of another chair. "There was blood everywhere. Everyone was yelling, 'Clear the way! Clear the way!' "
    A doctor sitting near where the victim fell said the man's face was "busted up," but he was breathing on his own and conscious.

    Dont...eat...the....brown.....acid...

    Lmao...a helicoptor was called, but they instead opted for the 30 minute ride to NUMC.

    PHish does that to me too.

    "The Dead" for those who cant let go.

    Any boy band music. The catchy beats would help in getting my timing down before I jumped.

    BULLCRAP on the ambulance.It was scary man. I was outside watching the show and then a swarm of cops drove inside the theater and an ambulance takes someone to the other side of the lot and stood there. 2 minutes later, a helicopter came and did an airlift. Heres my video:

    Bummed the hell out of alot of people outside once the word got out as to what happened.

    Stupid Hippies.

    For me, the "toss yourself to your own painful demise" music would be:

    1. Rap/R&B/Hip-Hop
    2. Country
    3. Boy/Girl Band Pop

    With that said, I'm aware of these potentially deadly artists, and wisely keep away from any venue within which they may be promotibg their Devil's Music.

    Land on as many as you can.

    Wear your kilt. That would make a good news story.

    LOL

    Tonight at 11. A man in a kilt who sounded like a cross between
    Major Winchester and the Mighty Thor jumped to his death and landed
    on a group of rap fans.

    Tell me you're not tuning in.
