Is it 1996?

So last night at the Paramount Studio Lot, T-Mobile hosted a party for the launch of their new Sidekick (snore…). But the great news here is that BLINK 182 made a surprise appearance performing live after 4 long years hating each other. Not only that, but WEEZER opened up for them. I kinda wish I knew about this earlier!

The beef I have though is Weezer according to eyewitness accounts had 5 members.  FIVE! Pat Wilson decided to step off his drum kit and play a little guitar for this performance. He was replaced by ex-Vandals/Devo member Josh Freese. They also decided to a do a little cover work and played Kids by MGMT and Poker Face by Lady Gaga.

What a show! Even if it wasn’t a full fledged one. But seriously is this 1996? I know some of you have heard me say this before, but this is seriously middle school all over again. Blink and Weezer where constantly in my CD player back then. Also add to the mix that No Doubt will also be returning this Summer with some new material! This makes the 12 year old inside of me scream with glee!

What do you guys think of all this? Are you looking forward to these big summer reunions or could you care less? Tell me in the comments!

Here are some pics of the Blink reunion:
