This drummer raised money for cancer research by playing every Foo Fighters song in order

There are apparently 128 songs in the Foo Fighters canon and drummer Greg Parton knows them all. He decided to put that knowledge to charitable use by playing all of them nonstop in order to raise money for cancer research.

He started by using AI to isolate all the drum parts so he could learn them cold. Then there was a six-hour practice session last month. And this past week, he went for it, playing every song over a nine-hour period, raising $5,000 along the way.

Here’s proof.
