Watch Mark Hoppus Join Mumford & Sons to Sing "Sweet Dreams" Live

If you told us Kelly Clarkson singing Tinder profiles would be the second most unexpected live performance we'd watch today, we wouldn't have believed you. But lo and behold: Here's Mark Hoppus joining Mumford & Sons to sing "Sweet Dreams," the '80s synth-pop staple by the Eurythmics.

Staying true to their banjo-less commitment, M&S enlisted the Blink-182 bassist to play onstage and offer some backup vocals for the special performance at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The opening acts from Mumford's Gentleman of the Road tour, the Vaccines and Jack Garratt, were also on hand. Check it out above.

We're never one to shoot down any type of nostalgia so, no matter how random, we're more than happy to see Hoppus and the Mumfies try their hand at Annie Lennox's icy vocal approach.

With Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba officially recording on Blink's upcoming album, maybe we're looking more rock collaborations for the pop-punk kings. We can think of a few others we'd love to hear on the new Blink-182 LP—starting with Gerard Way, please.
