^ Xanadu might seem cheesy to some people too, but it just happens to be my favourite musical, and even better, it's listed on ProgArchives too. Thumbs Up

Also, my dad still says The Who are far and away THE loudest band he's ever seen/heard live.

Back in the day, they were. The only two bands I saw who came close to matching them were Rainbow and Motörhead.

I always knew there was a head banger under that prog exterior!

I was brought up in a house where I was exposed to Led Zep, Genesis, Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Cream, Supertramp, Peter Gabriel. I was born in the early 70s and I still love music from that era - not specifically showing affinity to any one band (although Supertramp & Genesis are up there) but there's certainly a sound and feeling that I gravitate towards.

Motorhead was legendarily loud, I'd argue louder than Rainbow in the 80's once they picked up after Ace of Spades.

Also, I THINK ManoWar held the record for single-loudest band/vocal/note etc. for quite some time?

Both of my parents liked Country and Western, and my mom's favorite became "Easy Listening". 

So, my musical tastes were almost in opposition. But, I remember playing Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime in my living room right after I bought it, and hearing my mom saying "That is very good music." 

So, who knows, right?

When ELP played in Barcelona in '74, in a medium-size basketball stadium, during the sound check the sound broke most of the windows.

Ha! Reminds me of when i saw Motorhead on the Bomber tour! i was right up the front but got stuck near the PA.. i literally couldnt hear for three days after that- just white noise! UFO were pretty loud when i saw them too.. its amazing after a youth of loud music, an incident involving a home- made explosive and a (until relatively recently) a lifetime of riding large single and twin cylinder motorcycles that i can hear at all!
