Good Evening! I'm James May and I'm here to demolish a myth. It is said, in scientific circles, that the loudest noise ever heard by man was the eruption of the volcano Krakatoa in 1883, and that the second loudest was the Apollo Saturn V moon rocket, but these people are wrong. In between the exploding mountain and the firework, there was Motörhead at Sheffield Hall in 1979. I was there. I'm still suffering from some strange side effects; for example, I still like Motörhead.
