Even if you're not fans of either one of these bands, you got to admit, it'd be fucking cool to just run into them as you were walking down the street.

If you're wondering what in the world they're doing there together, you might be interested to read this...

U2 and Green Day will debut their collaborative cover of Scottish punk band the Skids' "The Saints Are Coming" during a live performance on Sept. 25 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. The show will serve as the official reopening of the venue prior to the New Orleans Saints' Monday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons.

ESPN will broadcast the performance live, while Rhapsody will offer a live audio stream. Afterward, the performance will be available for purchase via Rhapsody, with proceeds to benefit the instrument replacement fund Music Rising, co-founded by U2 guitarist the Edge.

The Superdome was nearly destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when it was forced into duty as a shelter for thousands of displaced citizens. Since then, the Saints have played home games in Baton Rouge, La., and San Antonio.

Meanwhile, U2 has already begun tracking its portion of the studio version of "The Saints Are Coming" and will be joined by Green Day at London's Abbey Road Studios in the coming weeks.

Also, a bit of FYI, for you U2 fans...Rick Rubin is producing their next album! Sweeeeet.
