The Loudest Band Ever

#3 Deep Purple (117 decibels)

#2 The Who,126 decibels, measured at a distance of 32 metres from the speakers at a concert at Charlton Athletic Football Club

#1 The heavy metal band Manowar at 129.5 decibels in 1994 in Hanover.

That's pretty loud: same as standing next to a jet plane taking off. Damage at 85Db, and rapidly increases as sound levels go up. It takes only two hours a day at 100 to do permanent damage to your hearing.
