THE WHO WAREN VOR 45 JAHREN DIE LAUTESTE ROCKBAND DER WELT
- May 31, 2021
On May 31, 1976, The Who won the title of loudest Rock band in the world in front of 75.000 fans at Charlton Athletic Stadium in London - and received an entry in the Guinness Book of Records: 30 meters in front of the stage (some sources speak of 32 meters), a value of 126 decibels had been measured. In 1984, the Heavy Metal band Manowar topped this value at a concert in Hanover, where they reached 129,5 dB. Motörhead, however, already cashed in on the record in December of the same year with 130 dB at the Variety Theatre in Cleveland. In July 2009, Kiss should have been crowned the new world record holders with 136 dB in Ottawa, but by then the title had already been abolished for health reasons.
