Blur played Coachella‘s main stage last night, delivering a hits-filled set that spanned their career. The Britpop legends were one of the festival’s headliners.

According to ‘NME,’ the band’s performance included fan favorites like ‘ Beetlebum,’ ‘Out of Time,’ ‘Tender’, ‘The Universal’, ‘This Is a Low,’ and ‘For Tomorrow.’ They also played one of their biggest U.S. hits, 1997’s ‘Song 2,’ the “woo-hoo” song, which you can watch in a video clip below.

Blur’s set preceded one by fellow ’90s British stars the Stone Roses, who loaded their show with cuts from their self-titled 1989 debut, an indie-rock milestone that still resonates today. The Stone Roses’ set included ‘I Wanna Be Adored’, ‘Made of Stone,’ ‘Waterfall’, ‘This Is the One’ and ‘I Am the Resurrection.’

Before Blur performed ‘Song 2,’ frontman Damon Albarn addressed the audience, somewhat agitated it appears from the video, by shouting “I don’t want any f—–g about now.”

The band also brought out British actor Phil Daniels for ‘Parklife.’ Daniels, who starred in the 1979 movie version of the Who‘s ‘Quadrophenia,’ guests on the studio version of the song and repeated his spoken-word verses during last night’s Coachella performance.
