FUSE TV - Watch: Andrew W.K. & Questlove Attempt 24-Hour Drumming World Record

UPDATE: And they're off! You can watch Andrew W.K. and Questlove attempt the 24-hour drumming world record right now, right here.

In the 12 years since the release of I Get Wet, partying has meant a great variety of things to Andrew W.K. A new definition is evidently "drumming for as long as humanly possible." 

At this Wednesday's fourth annual O Music Awards in New York City, W.K. will attempt to set a world record by drumming for 24 hours at Oakley's Times Square store, and Questlove is going to help out.

"When I signed up for it, I was like 'Alright, 24 hours of drumming!' And then it started to set in: 24 hours of drumming," W.K. tells MTV. "Just drumming for an hour—just drumming for 24 seconds—can be quite intense. I can't even play one of my own songs on the drums all the way through without my arms burning."

Egging Andrew W.K. on at first will be the Roots' drummer and bandleader,  pounding the skins alongside W.K. for the first leg of the record.

The O Music Awards have previously hosted Chiddy Bang's nine-hour freestyle rap world record and an epic eight-hour Flaming Lips concert. "Let it be said, I'm not taking this lightly," W.K. says. "I think it will push me to the very lengths of my strengths." Good luck, party-master.
