Usually I just add “updates” to articles that I have already posted, but this was such a good story I felt like it needed its own post. To follow-up on my wondering what Stephan Jenkins from Third Eye Blind might say on stage after hearing his band would be playing at the RNC: we have an answer. In a pretty epic troll job the band spent the night performing deeper cuts from their catalogue and proclaiming their support for LGBT rights and science.
At one point during the concert, Jenkins poked fun at controversial conservative views. “Raise your hand if you believe in science!” he reportedly taunted, drawing a series of boos from the crowd. He responded: “You can boo all you want, but I’m the motherf—king artist up here.”
Great question. We were not, as musicians on call were well aware of who we are and our take on things (like science and rights!)
