How could nitrogen be used as a explosive?

Nitrogen by itself does not support combustion. But if pressuring a vessel with nitrogen and allowing it to overpressure (beyond vessel limits) a vessel can explode by fatigue.
Under pressure, for example when scuba diving, yes, but otherwise, I don't think so.
