Metal fans don't give a shit about Amazon and they're not taking part in any bullshit sales rank surveys. Oasis is a band with a loud mouth leader who talks mucho shit. They're a pop band with rock leanings so they appeal to 16 year old girls and the "men" who love them. I doubt they're louder than Manowar and they fo sho ain't louder than Motorhead.

Besides that, I doubt many metal fans use the internet that much anyway. It's hard to afford web service when all of your money from working at the gas station goes to Generic smokes, keeping your Iroc-Z in tip-top shape and hair care products so they can rock the mullet in front of the high school to impress the babes.

Generalizing about entire fanbases is fun

That may be true...but Oasis is still not louder than Manowar.

But this one goes to eleven.

Probably not.

But then again... does anyone (besides Liam Gallagher or Manowar) really care?

By the way, I thought that Kiss was the loudest band in the world.

1. No

2. I think they used be at one point. I remember that claim in their 10th Anniversary tour program from 1983.

Kinda off topic, but the loudest band I have ever heard was Soundgarden at Lollapalooza around 1996 or so. It was outdoors at a racetrack. Metallica and Rancid were there, but neither was even close to being as loud. The loudest band I have ever heard indoors was Soulfly.

I love metal, but I've always tought that Manowar sucked hard.
Sort of a "Spinal Tap" joke band.
Or Gwar

For me, it was Slayer (indoors).
I had a ringing on my ears that wouldn't go away after 2 days

Outdoors, it was RATM at Lollapalooza '93

Without a doubt, Motley Crue on the Dr. Feelgood tour. I think they are known for excessive decibel level.

Black Label Society in a club was unbelievably loud. For those who don't know, that's Zakk Wylde's (guitarist of Ozzy) band.

In the 80's, I saw The Time and they were extremely loud as well.

I have no doubt Manowar would crank out more decibels. If nothing else, they would appear louder due to the genre.

The loudest one I've heard was The Rolling Stones in an open air Football Stadium at Faurot Field at the University of Missouri Columbia. The paper said you could hear the concert note for note up to three miles away (downtown)... my ears literally rang for five days after that concert.

BTW, Liam Gallagher says some RANDOM stuff. I can't stand the guy - but I do like Oasis.

I don't know where Manowar played their "loudest" show at, but I have one of their dvds with a concert at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Sao Paolo, Brazil, 1998. They claim to have had 20,000 watts of speakers just on stage, and blew 18 speakers during the show. I'd say that'd be pretty fucking loud!

So, when can we expect a Pantera/Godsmack style beat down?

Or, if you prefer

A Danny Marianinho/Danzig style punch.

I've been to probably a thousand shows, but the loudest I ever heard was a tie:

7th row for Van Halen in '82.

Manowar rehearsal in early '83.

My favorite Liam quote:

"After I heard System of a Down, I thought, Iím actually alive to hear the shittiest band ever. Of all the bands that have gone before and all the bands thatíll be in the future, I was around when the worst was around."

Of course there's the famous time that either Liam or Noel said of the members of Blur "I hope they catch AIDS and die."

I also like this one about Coldplay:

"Chris Martin shouldn't be using this cause to bang on about his own fuckin? views on the war. If him and his gawky bird (Gwyneth Paltrow) want to go banging on about the war they can do it at their own gigs"
