Rockin' 1000--The Biggest Rock Band on Earth

Rockin' 1000--The Biggest Rock Band on Earth

YouTube

This is pretty amazing. Some bands have a hard time making four people sound good. Rockin’ 1000, the group that orchestrated a 1000 person performance of the Foo Fighters’ “Learn To Fly” in 2015, are at it again with more awesome video from their 2016 event  “That’s Live—the Biggest Rock Band on Earth”. This time one by Dave Grohl’s former band, a little group called Nirvana.

The concert--which took place in Cesena, Italy--was organized and attended mostly by Italian musicians but also included participants from all over the world. The gargantuan band performed the Nirvana classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”  But that wasn’t it. They also paid tribute to the late great David Bowie with “Rebel Rebel,” and busted out some more contemporary rock with The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” All in all the band played seventeen songs. You can find them all on Spotify, who sponsored the event along with Rolling Stone.

You can check out video of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Rebel Rebel,” and “Seven Nation Army” below. It really is miraculous to watch 1000 people all synched and pulling off your favorite rock songs well.
