That’s 1000 die-hard Foo Fighters fans singing/shredding/drumming their hearts out for one common goal: So that the Foo Fighters will come and play a show for them in Italy.

Created by Fabio Zaffagnini, Rockin’ 1000 intends to entice Dave Grohl and the Foos to come to Italy and put on a show in the northern Italian city of Cesena. In the works for almost a year, their crowd-funding video/call to action can be seen below.

This was too cool and actually sounds rad!

I wonder if the Foo Fighters will heed the call?

It's cool that so many people came out to take part in a musical event of this sort.

That being said, Grohl as a guitarist just aggravates me on every level, and I hope he gives it up in favour of getting back where he damn well belongs, which is behind a drum kit.

to your coment

im not a huge fan of grohl as a musician in general but he seems like he is cool as #. funny dude.
i prefer him on the guitar though. probably cause i am a guitar player.
just not into his music though....

would love to hang out with him though.

That is one of the most awesome things ever! Dave couldn't resist I think, at least I couldn't if I were him.

That was cool...

The type of guy grohl is.. Its likely the foo's will be playing Italy soon! Those guys should get first dibs on tickets too...
maybe they could actually do it again at the concert?

That's beautiful.

I like it when people are cool.

That's hitting my emotions pretty heavy.

I like a few songs of theirs, and saw them live in NYC. But honestly, I think they are one of the most overrated bands.

That's really funny, I didn't remember that being in the movie. It was, wasn't it? I mean, I just assume that the clip you posted had to be in there if you say so...

I don't remember it either, after seeing the movie 3 times or so, but it's so contrary to the actual product of people coming together that it's ludicrous to compare or even put it in the same thread.

Don't get shot by little bananas.

get shot by human Love.

I don't think it was contrary, a thousand people playing any song is pretty ludicrous.

And I will pass on getting shot with a load of human love, thank you very much.

it is contrary to the awesome of the op video.
People coming together to do something..
It's the opposite of Idiocracy.

Don't let me sidetrack though.

I can tell.

Don't try and go to your lowest common denominator.. Let other people have complex fractions.

Ha, I agree! Only other song of theirs I like is the one that was in the X-Files movie, during the credits I think. I'd embed it but am on my phone so..

One thousand musicians and this is the song they choose? Wow, fail. Never heard of Backstreet Boys or heard Will Smith Big Willie Style??? Damn... Missed opportunity.

Tonight I'm tangled in my blanket of clouds
Dreaming aloud
Things just won't do without you
Matter of fact
Ooo...
I'm on your back [2x]
Ooo...
I'm on your back

If you'd accept surrender
I'll give up some more
Weren't you adored
I cannot be without you
Matter of fact
Ooo...
I'm on your back

Pretty cool that they got so many people all to play the same song. It's a shame it was a Foo Fighters song, though.
