Blink-182 Get New Openers


1 comment


I still haven't made up my mind if this is good news or bad news.

Fall Out Boy and All American Rejects are replacing Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French at Blink-182's rescheduled Blossom Music Center concert on September 30.

On one hand, I'm happy I won't have to sit through the blah Taking Back Sunday or the so-fucking-hip-it-hurts Chester French.

On the other hand, All American Rejects kinda suck.

So it all comes down to Weezer vs. Fall Out Boy. Rivers Cuomo and Pete Wentz are equally annoying. But I like Weezer's first two albums more than any Fall Out Boy album. Then again, Fall Out Boy haven't turned into spoiled, not-as-clever-as-they-think-they-are brats who keep recording the same songs under different titles. Yet.

What do you think? Did you like Blink's old supporting lineup better than the new one? —Michael Gallucci
