VIDEO: The Italian ROCKIN' 1000 Covers The best Of Rock
Last July (2015), Rockin' 1000 brought together 1,000 Italian musicians to perform Foo Fighters' 'Learn to Fly' in a bid for the Dave Grohl–led band to perform in Cesena, Italy. A video of the performance went viral, and the gambit succeeded in bringing the Foos to Cesena in early November.
Rockin’ 1000 was back in action recently, July 24, this time with 'That's Live', 1,200 musicians who performed a full concert that featured a range of rock classics. Once again, the show was held in Cesena.
Some of the songs performed include AC/DC’s 'It's a Long Way to the Top', the Clash’s 'Police on My Back', the White Stripes’ 'Seven Nation Army', a classic rock medley featuring Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, and, appropriately, the Beatles’ 'Come Together'.
The tune that seems to be getting the most attention online is Rockin’ 1000’s cover of Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
On July 28 on the official Nirvana Facebook page the band posted the Rockin' 1,000 video claiming: “The more, the merrier!”
