Mumford & Sons played a private performance last night (August 19) for just a few hundred KROQ listeners at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Fans were treated to a 14-song set, including a surprise appearance by Rage Against The Machine‘s Tom Morello for a cover of “Ghost Of Tom Joad.” After the Springsteen classic, Morello stuck around to lend a hand on Mumfords’ tracks “Awake My Soul” and “Dust Bowl Dance.” Marcus Mumford talked about how Rage Against The Machine was a huge influence during his youth, and that this was “the best Mumford & Sons gig ever.”

After a brief pause, the band returned to the postage stamp-sized stage to perform “The Wolf,” then had Morello return to the stage alongside Mark Hoppus and T Bone Burnett for an all-star finale of Blink-182‘s “What’s my Age Again?” Watch a short clip above.

The set also included new tracks like “Snake Eyes” and “Wilder Mind,” as well as hits like “I Will Wait,” “The Cave,” and “Little Lion Man.”

Tonight's set list. Thank you for a great night #mumfordandsons and @kroq!!
