We’re suckers for these videos with tons of people rocking out to a classic, and that’s what recently happened at Stade De France in Paris, France.

A thousand musicians from 25 different countries performed “Paradise City” by Guns N’ Roses together, and it’s an incredible sight. Watch the video of the group, called Rockin’ 1000, performing the rock staple below.

Rockin’ 1000’s performance was part of the celebration of their 8th birthday this month. The outfit formed in 2014 and created “the biggest rock band on Earth,” according to their official website.

Rockin’ 1000 is inclusive, too, as they state the group welcomes, “amateurs, professionals, volunteers, kids, men, women, no matter their provenance, ethnicity, sexual orientation or social background, what matters is to play music and love each other.”

“Paradise City” arrived in 1987 and appears on Guns N’ Roses’ debut album, Appetite for Destruction.
