Rock Out
2006 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

"Rock and Roll will never die."

(17 November 2006, Singapore) Picture a college dorm room. Dirty laundry, sexy posters, food wrappers, textbooks, and in the middle of it all, a 16-year-old male rocking out to loud music. A typical student, a typical day.

But this particular student, rocking out on his air guitar, was about to "take things too far," according to the coroner's report. Li Xiao, a student at the Hua Business School, bounced up and down on his bed with such enthusiasm that he rocked himself right out of the third-floor window.

Normally the windows are locked, but students reportedly force the locks so they can sneak a cigarette. Perhaps alluding to Ted Nugent's rock song, the court ruled it a case of "Death By Misadventure."

Reader Comments:
"Did he fall, or did he dive into an imaginary mosh pit?"
"Thank god I only have a two story window."
"Dude! Where's my mosh pit?"
"Rock and roll 'til he died."
"Air Guitar Disaster"
"Oingo Boingo"
