If you were an eagle-eyed Linkin Park fan living in New York City, you might've noticed a bunch of LP signs put up in Grand Central Terminal earlier this week. Loyally, fans stuck around the posters and spread the word on social media, and sure enough, the Cali rockers showed up in the train station to play an extraordinary pop-up show on Wednesday (May 18).

ABC's Good Morning America staged the show as a part of their pop-up series, in which famous bands play in really weird places. There were cameras all around to capture the moment when Chester Bennington and crew hopped off the Shuttle train and into a group of fans... and unsuspecting commuters.

Linkin Park played a stripped-down version of their recent single, "Heavy," which features Kiiara. Bennington also took a FaceTime from his wife, telling her that he was playing underground. For longtime fans, LP also got to "What I've Done" and "In the End."

"I'm a huge Linkin Park fan," one commuter told ABC News, "And I happened to be walking home from work and here we are."

Linkin Park's One More Light is out tomorrow, and if you want to see the band live -- maybe not in a train station -- their tour with Machine Gun Kelly begins on July 27. Get tickets at
