Watch 1000 Musicians Play “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at the Same Time

Cesena, Italy’s Rockin’ 1000, first took on “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters in a bid (ultimately successful) to convince the band to play a show in their city. That was followed by a rendition of David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel.” Now there’s this cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
