Imagine Dragons shared their support for the Writers Guild of America’s strike with a surprise performance for the picket line outside the Netflix building in Los Angeles.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, frontman Dan Reynolds and guitarist Wayne Sermon played the ID songs “Radioactive” and “Whatever It Takes” for WGA members, who started the strike last week over writer pay in the streaming era.
