Top Ten 90s One Hit Wonders

As I get older, more and more I find myself comparing the shitstorm that is 2018 with the warm, comforting glow of the 90s. Film, music, Toblerone… you name it, the 90s did it better (apart from TV).

Singles Club: Weezer, Gorillaz, Fall Out Boy

It’s been a while since I have done one of these, partly because I have downloaded Resident Evil 4 but also because there hasn’t been loads of new music coming out in the last few weeks. I was sprung into action by the return of the worlds greatest band. Ladies and gentlemen… WEEZER!
