In an incredible attempt to convince the Foo Fighters to play a concert in Italy, a group of 1,000 musicians came together from all over the country to play their song “Learn to Fly.”

The attempt, which has been dubbed the “Rockin’ 1000,” was the brainchild of Italian musician and adventurer Fabio Zaffagnini.

After months of crowdfunding and auditioning for 1,000 musicians that could play the song together, the Rockin’ 1000 was formed.

The video was posted Thursday, July 30th and in 24 hours had already racked up over 4 million views.

Dave Grohl loved the video so much he posted a response on his Facebook page – in Italian:

The Foo Fighters also tweeted out a link to the video:
