Mumford, Mark Hoppus And...The Eurythmics?

I was digging for info about Blink 182 as the now fragmented band has had some interesting things happening lately (after many years of dormancy).  Starting with Tom DeLong's departure nearly one year ago (and then his seeming regret?).  Not to mention drummer Travis Barker's memoir "Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death and Drums Drums Drums" (which is an amazing read btw).  

Add in the now more-than-just-rumors of a new Blink 182 album this summer with Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio in DeLong's place.  Feeling like I knew all there is to know about Blink, I found this little gem of a fan taken video from a Mumford and Son's show at the Forum in California last summer and I just had to share it.

I mean, sonically, Mumford & Sons, Mark Hoppus, the Vaccines and Eurythmics have probably never been used in the same sentence – let alone on the same stage. Here is the unlikely grouping of  Blink-182's bassist Mark Hoppus, Mumford and Sons, The Vaccines and Jack Garratt doing a pretty great cover of the 1983 synth-pop staple "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)."

1983 never sounded so good 😉
