Punk music icon Marky Ramone joined forces with Arcade Fire for their New York concert on Saturday night.

The drummer surprised fans at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center by joining the Canadian rockers to cover two Ramones hits, “I Don’t Wanna Go Down to the Basement” and “I Wanna Be Sedated.”

Throughout their current tour stops, Arcade Fire have been covering songs made by popular local artists, and Brooklyn-born Ramone was asked to join them on stage for the second night of the three-date residency, while New York Dolls’ David Johansen led the Grammy winners in a performance of “Hot Hot Hot” on Friday.

Arcade Fire closed out their Brooklyn gigs on Sunday.
