These Go to 11

Yo! It’s 11:11 on 11-11-11!

First and foremost, we join millions of Americans (and restaurant chains nationwide) in honoring the men and women of the military for Veterans Day today. Thank you for your service.

But today’s date also has special significance for metal fans everywhere, as well as more than 20,000 Facebook users: It’s Nigel Tufnel Day!

Commemorated in honor of the Spinal Tap guitarist — whose custom-made Marshall amp went “one louder” than all others — the international holiday is for the acknowledgement “that a life turned up to 11 is the only one any of us are interested in living.” Word.
