This. But I did see Motorhead for the first time in a stupidly small place. Ever since they've never struck me as particularly loud.
Saw a couple of good contenders tonight. Borracho and Sixty Watt Shaman.
The first time I saw Skid Row they were deafening. Probably no coincidence then that they were the last band I saw without earplugs, apart from one Testament gig when I forgot them.
