In a strange turn of events, Mumford & Sons have now covered “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails and we’re not mad about it.

The band is on a massive world tour to support their fourth album, and did the cover at a stop in Cleveland over the weekend.

The weekend marked the 25th anniversary of the Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral, from which “Hurt” is from. Mumford & Sons obviously wanted to pay honor to the world-renowned album with a cover of their own.

You can check out a video of the cover below.

And if you’re interested, you can listen to the original song here.

Also, Mumford and Sons are not the only musicians who have covered Nine Inch Nails to show off their fandom.

Recently, Lady Gaga covered a “I’m Afraid Of Americans” by the band and David Bowie  at her first show at her Las Vegas residency.

The singer performed at the MGM Park Theater, kicking off her two-year stay and introducing fans to her new pop odyssey show, Enigma.

Gaga sang the cover from within a round keyboard console while wearing a glowing cyberpunk outfit. The song came shortly after her performance of “Government Hooker,” tying together the political connotations.

In other news, Nine Inch Nails have recently collaborated with the new Captain Marvel film to create a limited-edition t-shirt.  

The idea came from Marvel, who approached the band about the collab. The idea behind it is that the main character Carol (Brie Larson) wears one of the band’s t-shirts throughout the film.

The shirts cost $25 and are available for preorder here. The shirts are expected to ship March 25.
