If you visit the IMDB page for “This Is Spinal Tap” right now, you will discover that its rating can go all the way to 11.

This is a homage to the classic scene in the mockumentary in which guitarist Nigel Tufnel (played by Christopher Guest) proudly shows director Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner) his trademark amp – an amp that can go all the way to 11.

Nigel’s response when questioned “Why don’t you make 10 be the top number and then make that a little louder?” by Marty?

As simple (and classic) as “These go to eleven”.
