The cast and crew of the Broadway musical Rock Of Ages have been joined by hundreds of New Yorkers to break the world record for the largest air guitar ensemble.

Guinness World Records counted 810 air guitarists after Wednesday's matinee performance at the Brooks Atkinson Theater. That beats the previous world record of 440 people, set at 2009's Download Festival.

The Rock Of Ages group rocked out to Journey's Don't Stop Believin' for 2 minutes, 34 seconds. The song - a staple of AOR radio - features in the musical.

(Oh, just go and buy some real guitars!)
