This Is Spinal Tap

Our friends over at /Film noticed something interesting about IMDb’s rating for the film This Is Spinal Tap: It goes to 11.

If you look at the entry on IMBb you’ll see that the maximum rating listed for the film is 11, though you really can only rank it between 1-10. Still, it looks damn cool, and that was quite clever.

In the 1984 mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, the heavy metal group Spinal Tap has amplifiers that go up to 11, because on a standard amp if you’re all the way up on 10 and you want to go louder, where can you go from there? Nowhere. Hence, these amps go to 11.

Watch the clip here below from the film where guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) is explaining his need for volume to documentary filmmaker Marty DiBergi (director Rob Reiner).

This Is Spinal Tap is one of my favorite movies of all time. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you do, especially if you’re into heavy metal. Also, the soundtrack is awesome too.

Kudos to /Film for noticing the IMBb listing.
