"We did a tour with Blink-182 – half the tour we supported, and half was Weezer supporting. But at some of the Weezer shows, Weezer had to pull out.
"So we showed up, and there were all these Weezer fans in the front row like, ‘What the fuck!’ They were so mad. They were there flipping us off. After a certain point, I would just play the show to them. By the end they were laughing and having a good time.
"I don’t think those kids will ever like my band or buy the record, but you’re there to have a good time, so just have a good time. I could see Vanilla Ice and I’ll have a good time, because if I’m there then I might as well.
"We had a girl at a show with her older sister, and the younger girl was more into pop bands. She was in the front row and couldn’t have looked more bored. We called her out and made her have a good time, and by the end of it she had a blast. I thrive on those moments."
