(Radio.com) Jimmy Kimmel's Mashup Mondays have been rolling along at a decent pace, supplying your late Monday nights with the musical joining of two artists generally not associated with each other. This past Monday (May 4), it was Imagine Dragons' turn to pair with REO Speedwagon.

And now, the video of the performance is online. Both bands joined to create Imagine REO SpeedDragons, performing REO's classic hit "Roll with the Changes"--perhaps relevant for fans of either band viewing such a strange, unexpected pairing.

But it worked. The performance was, understandably, most in the vein of REO's original, but Imagine Dragons added their signature bombastic percussion and kettle drums at the beginning, while frontman Dan Reynolds supplied the vocal on the second verse, sounding slightly more uninhibited than he generally does on his own band's songs.

Dave Amato assumed the role of guitar soloist for much of the performance, but Daniel Wayne Sermon got his chance at a solo about halfway through, too. Check it out here.
