Tony Hawk might be the coolest dude on planet Earth.

The first skater to land the 900, the man that took skateboard culture to an incredible new height, the man who delivered us one of the greatest video games of all time, and the man that even now, at 54 years old, is the ultimate cool dad who’s hilarious on Twitter… Tony Hawk is an icon.

Speaking of the video game, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has stood the test of time, first released for PlayStation in 1999. Since then, it has spawned nearly two-dozen iterations, including reissues of the original game on next-gen consoles.

And believe it or not, a huge part of the game is… the soundtrack.

Featuring punk, ska, and rock anthems from bands like Dead Kennedys, Goldfinger, Suicidal Tendencies, Bad Religion, Millencolin, Rage Against the Machine, and more… it’s garnered its own cult following.

And… a cover band.

Named The 900, the United Kingdom’s “first and only Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater cover band” hosted a gig at Signature Brew in Haggerston, London last night and none other than Tony Hawk himself showed up to join the fun.

While the band admittedly knew he was coming, it was a total surprise for fans when Tony took the stage:

“It’s really been my biggest honor to have these games carry on for so long. Hey, and we’re keeping it going right? I had to join the party. Enjoy!”

Tony even hopped on the mic for a cover of Goldfinger’s “Superman” and more.

The legend of Tony Hawk lives on:
