Mark Hoppus Joins Mumford & Sons to Cover “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”

Credits: Estevan Oriol; James Minchin III At their show Tuesday night at The Forum in Los Angeles, Mumford & Sons recruited Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus for a cover of the 1983 hit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)." You can watch a clip from the performance on The Forum's Instagram page.

Originally written by British synth-pop band Eurythmics, "Sweet Dreams" gained a second life when Marilyn Manson covered the track for his 1995 EP Smells Like Children. In terms of heaviness, Mumford-182's version of "Sweet Dreams" is somewhere between the original and Manson's.

Mumford & Sons' show at The Forum is the band's last North American headlining date scheduled for this year so far, though the band will hold another edition of their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover, featuring The Flaming Lips, on August 21-22 in Salida, Colorado.

Hoppus, meanwhile, previously told Billboard that Blink-182, which now features Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba in the place of departed guitarist Tom DeLonge, will be heading to the studio this month.
