"Boys 2 Dead", Way to Die #87, is the last death featured in the episode "Death on a Stick", which aired on August 3, 2010, and the eighth death to be featured in "Death By Request: Special", which aired on October 24, 2011.

Plot

Over-the-hill one-hit-wonder boy band "4EVER" was popular during the 1990's and early 2000's, performing for large crowds in ampitheaters and arenas. However, they found little success and now perform in dive bars and small nightclubs.

On one night, 4EVER's members Tim, Norm, Jeff, Tony, and Joe perform on stage for a very small, unenthusiastic crowd at dive bar. Tim, the ego-maniacal lead singer, decides to do a stage dive while the band sings their song, "(Stop Callin' Me) Baby". He dives, but with nobody to support him, he falls to the ground, shattering his spine, causing paralysis. His entire body shuts down, and he dies.

With the death of their lead singer, 4EVER now truly lives up to their name as they now have only four members. After overcoming the initial shock of Tim's death, the band decides to perform the rest of their song in his memory. Surprisingly, they gain more praise from the bar patrons.

"(Singing) Baby, The thing is maybe. I'm not gonna save you. From being the baby that's a baby alone."
