A video of Ohio State University's Marching Band has gone viral after they wowed audiences with their own classic rock tribute during the half-time show of a American Football college match between Ohio State and Rutgers University on Saturday.

The Ohio State Marching Band, which is commonly referred to as the “The Best Damn Band in the Land”, carried out a performance that included songs from the well-known rock bands the Rolling Stones, Kiss and Van Halen.

The performance also saw the band members organise themselves into some amazing formations that included the Rolling Stones’ signatory "lips and tongue" logo, a guitarist smashing his guitar into pieces and most impressively a fully functional pinball machine, with balls and buffers included.

The performance saw them produce their own versions of classic rock favourites such as Kiss’ Rock and Roll All Nite, the Who’s Pinball Wizard, as well as the Rolling Stones’ Jumping Jack Flash and Frankenstein by The Edgar Winter Group.

The performance lasted a total of nine minutes and has so far proved a massive hit with Youtube users - in just two days over 250,000 people have watched the video.

The Ohio state band are renowned for their impressive half time shows that include contemporary music and large scale choreography.

Last month they gained notoriety with a Wizard of Oz tribute that saw them play the music from the film while recreating the storyline with a series of elaborate formations.
