Guinness World Records for 2015 will release September 10, 2014
The book of world records always finds a new category to add to the selection of unusual, almost superhuman records! Well the beloved Guinness World Records have awarded Metallica as the “only band to tour all seven countries.” They recently played a show in the, not so populated, Antarctica, James Hatfield said in a statement. “Yes, 120 scientists and competition winners. Not to mention the 300 very curious penguins!” The band recently played shows in North and South America and Europe, currently no dates are set for the rest of the year. Metallica says they are focusing on writing and recording their follow-up to their 2008 record Death Magnetic.
They aren’t the only musical act to hold some sort of record here, Eminem managed to squeeze the most words into a hit single (1,560 in the single “Rap God”). Guinness even recognized the HBO hit show Game of Thrones as the “most pirated show after Torrent Freak reported that it had earned the distinction by being downloaded a supposed 5.9 million times a week last year.
