Metallica, One Direction, Eminem, Among New Adds to Guinness World Records

guinnessThere is a new edition of the Guinness World Records coming out next week and some well-know musicians are having their names added to the list.

Metallica was the biggest surprise for me.  According to the article:

Metallica’s achievement comes for being the first and only band to ever perform a concert on all seven of Earth’s continents, and did so in a single year, following its its “Freeze ‘Em All” show show in Antarctica last December.

“Seven continents in one year with Antarctica being the gig of a lifetime,” said singer James Hetfield in a press release statement. “Yes, 120 scientists and competition winners. Not to mention the 300 very curious penguins!”

I have to say, I would have loved to see that show!

Other artists recognized are Eminem, One  Direction, Shakira, Katy Perry and MileyCyrus.

Can you guess why Katy Perry or Miley Cyrus are being nominated?
