Many people in this world would love to have their names remembered. It’s natural to crave recognition for doing something great, or something no one else has done before. That’s why people set out to break world records. And it only makes sense that artists and performers, who have an even stronger innate desire to be seen by the masses, would be among those world record breakers.

Some artists are willing to go to extremes to break a record. Metallica braved the cold of Antarctica in order to play on all seven continents, while KISS went the opposite directing firing up plenty of pyro while playing in Dubai setting multiple records during their fiery performance. And that's just the beginning.

From alternative rock to classic metal, here are 10 bands that have done just that.
