So, That’s apparently the largest rock band ever assembled. A solid 1,000 people played Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana in Cesena, Italy, last year.
It’s a perfect choice of material for a big group to bash out. More people know the words to Louie Louie than Teen Spirit, but like Louie Louie, you can just yell any old thing into the microphone, as long as it sounds vaguely disaffected. There are some challenges with the song, however. In order to play the drum part, you have to complete about half of your first drum lesson. If you screw up and take a whole drum lesson, it can take weeks to forget enough to play the song properly.
