Arrowhead stadium hits 137.5 decibels, breaking crowd noise world record

Besides rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs' sixth win of the season, the crowd at Arrowhead stadium had something else to cheer for this afternoon: the Guinness World record for loudest stadium. And they did it: officially hitting 137.5 decibels to best Seattle's CenturyLink field record of 136.6 decibels set earlier this season. The record was reportedly set with approximately 1:35 left in the game when Chiefs' safety Hussein Abdullah returned an interception for a touchdown.

Note: 137.7 is an unofficial reading. But still awesome!
