What happens when over 1000 musicians get together and perform Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at the same time? You don’t have to wonder for much longer because that is exactly what happened in Italy a part of Rockin’ 1000’s “That’s Live” concert.
Previously the group, who are technically the biggest rock back on the planet, member wise, performed “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters in 2015. They did this to try and tempt The Foo Fighters to perform in the Italian city of Cesena. The video ended up getting tens of millions of view and the Foo Fighters performed there on November 3, 2015. This performance of Smells Like Teen Spirit was a follow up to their clever marketing ploy.
A stunning spectacle that takes this classic rock song to a new level of power! The group have also covered David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel” and many other classics such as Seven Nation Army and We Will Rock You.
You can see the epic performance that got the attention of the Foo Fighter band members below. The video is now approaching 57 million views and has inspired many more performances from the Rockin’ 1000 group who held a concert in 2016 called “That’s Live”.
Although their first video may have been aimed at just the members of The Foo Fighters, their videos now reach a much larger audience. This performance below saw musicians come from all over the world to play David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel on July 24th, 2016. This time there was a full rock concert called “That’s Live.”
All of their videos on YouTube have racked up a massive combined total of 125 million views, not surprising really as these classic rock anthems are on another level when performed my thousands.
