DevilDriver fans attempt the biggest circle pit evvvvvvvvvveerr

With thousands of fans trampling barricades, smashing into each other, and helping DevilDriver create one of its best performances ever, the band thought the Guinness Book of World Records would want to certify the circle pit from Download 2007 as the biggest in history. Turns out not so much. Here's what Guinness had to say:

Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record proposal for 'Largest Circle Pit'. We are afraid to say that we are unable to accept this as a Guinness World Record.

Unfortunately, as there is no way you can physically definie (sic) where any circle/mosh pit starts and ends, we cannot accept this as a category. We receive over 60,000 enquiries a year from which only a small proportion are approved by our experienced researchers to establish new categories. These are not 'made up' to suit an individual proposal, but rather 'evolve' as a result of international competition in a field, which naturally accommodates superlatives of the sort that we are interested in. We think you will appreciate that we are bound to favour those that reflect the greatest interest.

We realize that this will be disappointing to you. However, we have considered your proposal fully; in the context of the specific subject area and that of records as a whole, and our decision is final in this matter.

Once again thank you for your interest in Guinness World Records.

Hey DevilDriver, if it means anything to you, you get the Metal Injection World Record for largest circle pit we've ever seen, sound good?
