A country singer in Nashville covering the Lit single “My Own Worst Enemy” got a very welcome surprise when members of the ’90s rock outfit joined him on stage.

Vocalist Ajay Popoff and his brother, guitarist Jeremy Popoff, were hanging around Nashville when they heard local musician Eric Van Houten playing an acoustic version of their inescapable 1999 hit at the Twelve Thirty Club restaurant and music venue. They then decided to sneak up behind Van Houten while grabbing a mic and an electric guitar before starting to jam out with him.

According to a press release, video of the interaction has racked up over 12 million views in 24 hours across several social media platforms.

Last week, Lit announced a podcast dedicated to “My Own Worst Enemy,” which will premiere November 23. The Popoff brothers and founding bassist Kevin Baldes will all take part in the series.
