Proving they're still the coolest bunch of dudes on earth, Linkin Park dropped by Vans Warped Tour in Ventura, California yesterday for a surprise set. And man, did they have some surprises.
So here's what happened.
After a weekend of rumours, Vans Warped Tour posted this on their Twitter feed yesterday afternoon.
A few hours later, LP's Instagram made it even clearer.
And while we were cursing the sky for living on the wrong side of the globe, the band kicked off what will go down as a defining moment in Warped Tour history. Why?
For a start, they opened with 'One Step Closer' and Finch's Nate Barcalow came out for a guest spot.
Then they kicked into 'New Divide' featuring Breathe Carolina's David Schmitt.
After that, new track 'Guilty All The Same' got an airing featuring The Devil Wears Prada's Mike Hranica and Jeremy DePoyster.
'Faint' featuring Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn of Issues was next.
Then 'What I've Done' featuring Yellowcard's Ryan Key happened.
A Day To Remember's Jeremy McKinnon flew in to lend his pipes to 'A Place For My Head'.
And after all of that, they wrapped up with 'Bleed It Out' featuring Machine Gun Kelly.
Understandably, lots of people were stoked on the set.
