The Foo Fighters have been all over the place lately. Remember when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg in one of their recent shows, and he turned it around in epic fashion? Or that particular gig where he let his orthopedic surgeon assume mic duties?

And just when we thought nothing could be cooler than Dave’s guitar-adorned makeshift throne—which served as sort of a wheelchair for him to be able to continue performing even with the injury—a throng of musicians from Italy has proven otherwise.

Organized by artist collective Rockin’ 1000, a thousand-strong army of musicians—singers, guitarists, bassists and drummers, plus one conductor—got together to play Foo Fighters' “Learn to Fly,” in hopes of coaxing the American rock band to perform in Cesena, Italy. The good news: They got it all on tape. It was glorious.

Before the actual video, here are a few screen shots to build up your excitement:

NEVER SEEN THAT MANY DRUMMERS OUTSIDE A DRUM LINE

JUST TO SHOW YOU HOW HUGE THE GROUP WAS


Now, here is the full video that includes Rockin' 1000 founder Fabio Zaffagnini's parting words:

According to the group, the band has not visited Romagna (it's what they called Italy in ye olden days) since 1997. But by the looks of this tweet below, the Italians just might have a chance of pulling this one off:
