If you were playing in a band that used wild pyrotechnics constantly during your show, you might get a little overheated, so you can understand why Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor passed out on stage during a show at Dallas' Gexa Energy Pavilion and had to be carried off by security!

As you can see in the video below (via NME), Taylor was performing with pyrotechnics exploding behind him and fainted from heat exhaustion. He was carried off by security, but not taken to the hospital because presumably he just woke up, told everyone he was fine, and got on Twitter:

Hello everyone. I'm fine- just overheated in Dallas last night. Ready and waiting for Houston! Thank you to everyone for your concerns!
