The 55th Annual Grammy Awards just got a little more intriguing with the announcement of a new collaborative pairing. MTV reports that Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker will help rock out a performance that features Grammy host and rap great LL Cool J, Public Enemy leader Chuck D and turntable titan DJ Z-Trip.

While it was not revealed what the five-piece would be performing at the Grammys, it will likely be an amalgamation of songs pulling from all of the performers’ strengths, so don’t be surprised to get some rock, rap and electronic hybrid by the time is all said and done.

The newly announced performers join a lineup that already includes music guests Justin Timberlake, fun., Taylor Swift, Jack White, the Black Keys, Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Sting, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Wiz Khalifa, Hunter Hayes, Kelly Clarkson, Frank Ocean, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Maroon 5, Alicia Keys, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Mavis Staples, Zac Brown, T-Bone Burnett, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley.

Music’s biggest night will also feature presenters Dave Grohl, Prince, Keith Urban, Ryan Seacrest, Ne-Yo, Beyonce, Hunter Hayes, Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Kaley Cuoco, Neil Patrick Harris, Faith Hill, Jennifer Lopez, Tim McGraw, and Pauley Perrette.
