A 90’s one-hit wonder band took time off from touring county fairs and high school dances to act like assholes:
The ’90s rock band Third Eye Blind, known for their WB-ready hits “Semi-Charmed Life” and that song from Can’t Hardly Wait, trolled a crowd of Republicans in attendance for their concert in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention. Frontman Stephen Jenkins discussed his gay cousins, and how the band rejects the party’s anti-LGBT platform—to loud boos from the crowd at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “To love this song is to take into your heart the message, and to actually—actually—have a feeling to arrive and move forward, and not live your life in fear, and imposing that fear on other people,” he said, before launching into their tune “Jumper.” At another point, Jenkins also jokingly asked the crowd, “Raise your hand if you believe in science?” to a chorus of boos.
The concert was held at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland, and was a charity event to raise money for Musicians on Call. Their performance was the only way that Third Eye Blind will ever get in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame without buying a ticket.
