The collaborative track first arrived back in March of last year.
Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that Machine Gun Kelly has a rather unique presence – something he has in common with Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes.
The pair linked up last year for a belting joint single called Maybe, and at this year’s Rock im Park festival in Germany, they (finally) recreated their collaborative chemistry onstage. It’s not actually the first time that MGK (real name Colson Baker) has performed Maybe – according to setlist.fm, it was the 76th – but it’s the first time that Sykes himself has joined the rapper-come-pop-punker in the flesh to sing on it.
The moment came surprisingly early in Baker’s set at Rock im Park (which went down in Nuremberg last Saturday, June 3), appearing third in the setlist Papercuts and Born With Horns. Baker and Sykes recreated the experience for their fans at Rock am Ring in Nürburg the following afternoon (June 4). Bring Me The Horizon also performed at both festivals, which ran concurrently over June 2-4.
Have a look at some crowd-captured footage of the moment from Rock im Park below, then compare it to the original studio mix of Maybe.

During BMTH’s own set at Rock im Park, Sykes and co. were joined by Yungblud for a performance of their own collab, Obey, while Spiritbox frontwoman Courtney LaPlante came out to lend her one-of-a-kind vocals to One Day The Only Butterflies Left Will Be In Your Chest As You March Towards Your Death (from BMTH’s 2020 record Post Human: Survival Horror, originally featuring Amy Lee of Evanescence) and Nihilist Blues (from 2019’s Amo, originally featuring Grimes).
Yungblud also jumped on the mic during Limp Bizkit’s set at Rock im Park, joining them for a truly wild performance of the 1999 classic Break Stuff.
