Motörhead have spent the past 40 years tearing through underground clubs, massive stadiums and weekend-long festivals, but last week, the band attempted something new: a tropical cruise. Departing from Miami on September 22nd and making stops in Key West and Cozumel, the "Motörboat" brought heavy metal to the high seas and featured a previously unseen combination of gambling, belly-flopping, shirtlessness, guitar soloing and even yoga.

Bombs Away

David Ellefson and Chris Broderick of Megadeth judge the cruise's gnarly belly-flop competition. Per the official rules: "Creativity is valued over technique here so beginner to expert floppers are welcome."
