Prepare to be blown away by some extraordinary rock and metal related Guinness World Records. From making a guitar that’s approximately the size of a single cell to the longest music video ever made (which was over 177 days long), music lovers worldwide have set some truly amazing world records.
Guinness World Records have been around since the 1950s and started with Sir Hugh Beaver when he started arguing about the fastest bird game in Europe and couldn’t find the answer in any book. So, in 1954, he started the Guinness Book of Records.
Sixty-eight years later, the Guinness World Records includes all sorts of different records from the band with the most followers on Instagram (held by BTS), to the longest wheelchair ramp jump (held by Aaron Fotheringham) to the longest career as a TV presenter (held by David Attenborough), to the oldest musical instrument, which is an ancient bone flute estimated to be about 43,000 to 82,000 years old.
You can find the longest-running music hall in the world, City Varieties Music Hall, located in Leeds in the United Kingdom and has been up and running since 1865 in the Guinness World Records.
