PASADENA, CA - JULY 29: Musician James Hetfield of Metallica performs onstage at the Rose Bowl on July 29, 2017 in Pasadena, California.

Stage falls: They happen to even the best rockers out there.

Sometimes, they’re hilarious, but sometimes, a tumble will literally have you scream, “OH, SH*T!” out loud.

In honor of James Hetfield’s latest spill, we look back at some of the nastiest stage falls in recent memory

Just last night (September 4), Papa Het fell into a hole on stage during Metallica’s show in Amsterdam. Thankfully, he’s okay, but it certainly could’ve been worse.
