Here Are 10 Bands Who Set World Records

Here are 10 bands who set world records, in no particular order:


1.  Metallica: In 2013, they became the first band to play on all seven continents in one year.


2.  Kiss: During their “Kiss 2020 Goodbye” livestream in Dubai, they had the highest flame projection in a concert at about 115 feet . . . and the most flame projections launched simultaneously in a music concert.


3.  Pearl Jam: They have the most live tracks released in one week.  Last year they put out a digital archive called “Deep” that has 5,404 live songs compiled over a span of 14 years of touring.


4.  Motley Crue: They have the first song to sell better on Xbox than iTunes. “Saints of Los Angeles” was downloaded 37,000 more times in its first week on Xbox Live.


5.  Paramore: In the music video for “Ain’t It Fun”, they set 10 world records, including the most feathers caught in 30 seconds, longest time spinning a vinyl record on a finger, and the fastest time to run backward holding stuffed animals while blindfolded for 30 feet.

Setting 10 world records in a video was also a world record in itself.

9.  OK Go: They became the first to shoot a music video on a reduced-gravity aircraft.  It was for “Upside Down & Inside Out”.


10.  Shinedown: They have most #1 hits on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart . . . 16 total.
