If you’re in need of a quick refresher of the past 10 years in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before seeing Avengers: Endgame, look no further than one of Billy Joel‘s most popular songs.

In an appearance on The Tonight Show Monday, the cast of Avengers: Endgame released a video of their recap of all 22 (!) Marvel films. They did so in an unconventional way: singing “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” one of Joel’s most iconic songs.

The video transitions throughout many of the Avengers — including originals Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo — as they sing the tune, along with snippets of scenes from every Marvel movie.

Avengers newbie Brie Larson also joins the sing-along, as well as Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle and Elizabeth Olson. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon also joins the action, belting out the tune with sunglasses on.

At the video’s conclusion, small stills from the comics form into a tribute image of Stan Lee, the Marvel Comics godfather who died in November at age 95.
