Singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park is sporting a sling after he broke his wrist on stage in Melbourne, Australia, on Monday.

Bennington routinely jumps off a set of stairs during the show, and this time his foot went into the stair and he fell backwards. Footage of Bennington's profanity-laced reaction to the break is posted on the band's Web site,

Bennington's fall happened about three or four songs into the concert, and he still finished the show before he went to a hospital.

Bandmate Mike Shinoda says Bennington told him, "If it's broken, it's going to be just as broken in an hour as it is right now, so we might as well keep going."

Shinoda says a guy in the front row a minute later yelled, "That's (expletive deleted) rock and roll!"
