Weezer at Jones Beach in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Weezer

So it turns out that totally awesome cruise that Mark McGrath was going to do with a redonkulously stacked lineup of Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Spin Doctors, Vertical Horizon, and more isn't going to happen after all. "It's a real bummer," says Mark McGrath. We feel you bro, a real bummer for sure. Mark blames "that poop cruise" (aka the Carnival cruise that got stuck at sea) for the cancellation. Can you imagine what would have happened if Mark McGrath's cruise got stuck at sea? Would Smash Mouth just play "All Star" on repeat until we got home to encourage us? Alice Cooper cancelled a cruise recently too. Can you imagine if that one got stranded at sea?

Still, other cruises are alive and well, as evidenced by Weezer, whose Weezer Cruise is returning for a second run from February 13-17, 2014 from the coast of Jacksonville, FL to the Bahamas, just over two years after its inaugural cruise. How can Weezer's cruise still happen after that poop cruise ruined cruises forever? Maybe the real reason is Weezer books bands people care about now (the first cruise had Dinosaur Jr., The Antlers, Yuck, Wavves, and more) and Mark McGrath books bands that no one has listened to since people actually bought Now, That's What I Call Music! CDs. Weezer hasn't announced their lineup for this year yet, but we're assuming Sugar Ray and Smash Mouth aren't going to be on it. A trailer video for Weezer's 2014 cruise (which includes info about when tickets go on sale) is below. Stay tuned for the lineup.

P.S. Mark McGrath turned his cruise into an on-land tour but seriously, no one cares.

I hate when the word "poop" is used unironically. *chills*

311 just pulled off another cruise and they seem to do it pretty successfully every year.

Um...either this cruise happened a few weeks ago or you put the wrong year in the article.

i think weezer is in the same pool as sugar ray and smash mouth at this point in the game...come on.

that writeup was harsh, bro

Posted by Anonymous | March 11, 2013 9:22 PM

This article has so much wrong in it. The original Weezer cruise happened in February of 2012 and the next one is happening in February of 2014. The article says "just three years after its inaugural cruise"
Basic math tells me that 2014 minus 2012 equals 2. TWO. Fucking idiot.

"Wrongness" would be the word you were looking for. Even "wrength" would have been acceptable.

"Douche" is the word you are looking for. Even "douchebag" would have been acceptable.

How is that 311 cruise happening? The lineup is terrible even for terrible music.

I was sorta hoping the Smashmouth cruise would happen on the off chance it would sink, thus ridding the world of some bad music, a bunch of fans of bad music, and ending David Lowery's anti-downloading/get off my lawn screeds.
