Did you hear the one about the loudest fans in the world? If you were among Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, it's hard to imagine you heard anything above the 137.5-decibel roar that set a world record for the loudest outdoor stadium. That's nearly a full decibel above the previous mark, set at Seattle's CenturyLink Field during the Seahawks' Week 2 rout of the 49ers. How loud is loud? For comparison, a jet engine 100 feet away registers 140 decibels.


I Love It Loud

Arrowhead already had a reputation for loud fans, but the Chiefs' perfect 6-0 start has turned up the volume in Kansas City.
