World’s Most Unlikely Supergroup Feat. Mark Hoppus, Tom Morello And Mumford & Sons Cover A Blink ClassicWritten by Emmy Mack on August 25, 2015
Some of rock music’s most random identities have joined forces onstage at Hollywood’s The Troubadour this week for no discernible reason other than they felt like it.
The Blink-182 champ, the Rage Against The Machine guitar-wizard, the Americana overlord and team Mumford all linked up for the super-jam, which Stereogum reports was during a private show for US radio station, KROQ.
The unlikely collective busted out a fairly sloppy and off-key (but unquestionably glorious) cover of Blink-182’s Enema Of the State classic What’s My Age Again?, with Hoppus on vocal and bass duties, naturally.
Keyboardist Ben Lovett even took the opportunity to go for a sneaky crowd-surf, which is a pretty ballsy move for a keysman.
Thankfully, the internet exists, and smartphone-wielding fans were quick to nab all the action on camera for us mere mortals to now behold.
Check out some of the footage below.
Despite their seemingly being from two different worlds, this isn’t the first time that Mark Hoppus has collaborated with Mumford & Sons. He joined them onstage for a cover of Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams during a show on their Wilder Mind US Tour just last week.
Could this be the beginning of a beautiful folk-punk friendship?
