Watch 1,000 people cover The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’

Rockin' 1000 group previously covered the Foo Fighters and Nirvana

Rockin’ 1000, the Italian group of musicians famous for covering the Foo Fighters’ ‘Learn To Fly’, have covered The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’.

They recently gathered in Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy to perform their rendition of the hit single, which also recently became a football chant at the Euro 2016 finals in France. You can watch the performance below.

The group of 1,000 Italian musicians previously joined forces to to perform ‘Learn To Fly’ in a bid to get Foo Fighters to play in their city.


The performance was part of a campaign by fans to get Dave Grohl and his bandmates to play a gig in the local area.

Foo Fighters later took to Twitter to post messages that read “How nice, Cesena” and “See you soon”.

Following the performance – footage of which went viral – the band subsequently played a gig in Cesena last November, inviting the organisers of the video to join them onstage.

Earlier this year, the musicians also filmed themselves covering the band’s track ‘Saint Cecilia’. The group recorded themselves performing the song remotely and then cut the audio and footage together to make one group performance of the track – taken from the Foo Fighters’ recent EP of the same name.


Rockin’ 1000 have also previously covered Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.

Meanwhile, Jack White recently played the first ever record in space.

The musician and his record label Third Man Records launched a “space-proof” turntable called the Icarus Craft attached to a high-altitude balloon.

On the turntable was Carl Sagan‘s ‘A Glorious Dawn’, a single Third Man released in 2010. The balloon and turntable were launched just outside Marsing, Idaho.

The turntable began playing the record whilst in flight. It floated upwards for 80 minutes, where it reached over 94,000 feet. The balloon then popped and the Icarus Craft fell back to Earth.
