It seems Manowar is the loudest band ever....they managed to reach 129.5 decibels in a concert in Great Britain (Spectacle of Music Tour, 1994). Before doing this, they announced their intention and asked people to use earphones.
In order to better understand what this means, you should know that sound levels above 85 dB are considered harmful, while 120 dB is unsafe and 150 dB causes physical damage to the human body.
A Boeing taking off makes a sound of about 140 dB at very close range. Windows break off at 163 dB.
On the other hand, Moby has the world's fastest track, called Thousand, reaching about 1015 bpm. What does this mean? Well, usually hip-hop music is played at 70-110 bpm and house music is played at about 140bpm.
Well, the conclusion ? No conclusion, both tracks are brilliant ! :)
That's all, folks.
Update: Another record from the music world... The longest album title is... watch out:
"When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight and He'll Win the Whole Thing 'Fore He Enters the Ring There's No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land and If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz You'll Know That You're Right."
The album was by Fiona Apple in November 999. I bet the cover of the album is veeery interesting....and long :)
UPDATE 2: Here is the cover.
