I can't imagine how scary that was. They must have been petrified.

So, they changed the venue to death metal ?

I heard that, in addition to the male victim, they also found a dead mouse.

At first they were afraid, they were petrified... yadda yadda yadda... they will survive (except for that one guy).

"Sandstorm" was annoying, but not nearly as annoying as "Better Off Alone," "Blue," and "9 PM (Till I Come)"

No, I am not a jerk like Ishkur who tries to claim that sampling a song from one genre and redesigning/overproducing it to sound like something else entirely with a techno beat, means that the new song is also part of the genre the original song was sampled from.

Way back when, i was at a Phish (yeah i know, regrettable youth choices) concert outdoors. Storm rolls in, and a lightning bolt nails one of the light\sound towers.

Crowd goes wild. My buddy and i noped the fark out of there.

I can only imagine the kind of drugs going on at an EDM thing where most of that crowd was "that was farking awesome!"

In the summer '99, some friends and I went to see REM (opener: Wilco, yeah buddy) perform outdoors at Midway Stadium in St. Paul, MN.

The weather report said that storms were possible late in the evening and me, being the over-preparer that I am, went to Menards and bought a 20' x 20' blue-poly tarp, to bring along just in case.

After we'd been tailgating in the stadium parking for a few hours, it was finally time to head in. I grab the tarp and my buddies were all "Oh, look, it's Mother Hen again," and "We don't need that stupid tarp, ya doofus," and "Just leave that shiat in the truck, Pope."

I took the tarp in anyway.

The concert was amazing - including an impromptu version of Orange Blossom Special as a train went by - and dry, all the way up to the encore when, I'm not making this up, at the start of It's the End of the World as We Know It, as if on cosmic cue, a storm blew in and started dumping rain on us.

I immediately took out the tarp and my buddies, initially begrudgingly, each grabbed a side and, within seconds, - TA-DAH! - we had 20 appreciative women underneath.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Really could've used the IRONIC on this one. Not for the accuracy, but for the chaos.

The group that would rush in to push their glasses up and declare that it wasn't irony, but coincidence.

The ones that would inform us that is probably wasn't iron, but steel, aluminum... whatever.

The British who would tell us that it's really spelled aluminium.

Some, like myself, who would say "Whoooosh!"

/To be fair, it did happen in Vigo. And that's the "Master of Evil. Sorrow of the Iberians."

Meh Metallica dropped lighting on a fan back in the day. And that was in doors at the Alamo Dome.
It's surprising this doesn't happen more often.
