The Rockin’ 1,000 are at it again. The group of 1,000 Italian musicians known for covering the Foo Fighters’ “Learn To Fly,” have recently made a new video. This time, the musicians have covered the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
According to NME, Rockin’ 1,000 recently gathered at Orogel Stadium in Cesena, Italy, to cover The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
While Rockin’ 1,000 was preparing their cover, Jake White was working at playing the first phonograph record in outer space to celebrate the seventh anniversary of his label, Third Man Records. On Saturday (July 30), he succeeded at spinning a gold-plated 12” master of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos speech “A Glorious Dawn,” which the label originally reissued in 2009. According to NME, the turntable floated upwards for 80 minutes, where it reached over 94,000 feet while playing the record through a creation called the Icarus Craft, a custom-built “space proof” turntable able to spin vinyl from a spaceship.
The Foo Fighters were so impressed, the band played a show for their Italian fans. Could this gesture mean Jack and Meg will reunite The White Stripes? Only time will tell.
Watch the performance below.
