Dave Grohl's hometown of Warren, Ohio recently unveiled gigantic 900-lb. drumsticks to honor their native son. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the massive pair have broken the Guinness World Record.

Grohl tweeted his thanks, posting, "To the wonderful city of Warren, from the bottom of my heart I'd like to thank you all so much . . . For the childhood memories. For my family. For my very own alley. For the world's largest drumsticks! And for all of your support . . . But most of all for being such a great community. One that makes me proud to say . . . I am from Warren, Ohio!"

The drumsticks will be shown at the Warren Amphitheater through September and will be relocated to David Grohl Alley in Warren afterwards. Though Grohl was born in Warren in 1969, his family moved to the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. when he was a young child. You can watch footage of the drumsticks being crafted below.
