Watch blink-182 Perform With Goody Grace on Jimmy Kimmel
In between tweeting memes, drumming on emo-rap tracks, forming Simple Creatures, and being two-thirds of blink-182, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker also had time to appear on television last week. The punk rock legends joined pop singer Goody Grace for a performance of their collaborative track Scumbag on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The episode aired on February 27, with Goody Grace singing and playing the first part of the song before Mark and Travis joined in towards the end. The set is a reminder that Jimmy Kimmel is still in tune with the changing rock landscape – blink-182 are one of the many bands he’s featured, alongside acts like PVRIS, Weezer, Bring Me the Horizon and Fall Out Boy.
Watch the performance below:
Goody Grace posted a clip of the performance to Twitter with the caption, “dreams come true.”
He also posted a heartfelt message on Instagram, writing, “thank you @blink182 for being the most legendary band i could’ve ever had play with me on my tv debut performance. just the beginning 🖤∞”
The track initially came out in October 2019. Here’s the original video for it:
Travis Barker has been all over the place lately. He’s collaborated with everyone from FEVER 333, to nothing,nowhere., to YUNGBLUD, to Machine Gun Kelly. He’s also producing MGK’s upcoming pop-punk album, Tickets To My Downfall, which is due out this summer.
Most recently, he guested on The Hunna’s new single, Cover You. Check out the song’s video below:
But he’s not the only blink member popping up on other artists’ tracks – both Mark and Travis are set to appear on The Used’s upcoming EP, Heartwork, out on April 24.
As a band, blink-182 recently launched a merch line to raise money to help with Australian bushfire relief. “Australia is being ravaged by deadly fires, and we just feel so helpless,” the band said in a tweet.
The pop-punk trio are also scheduled to play a number of festivals over the summer. Here are the dates:
18 – 21 Firefly Music Festival – Dover, DE
28 Summerfest – Milwaukee, WI
10 Common Ground – Lansing, MI
12 Inkcarceration – Mansfield, OH
15 Ottawa Bluesfest – Ottawa, ON
