This is chilling!
As we told you earlier, the former bassist for rock band Weezer, Mikey Welsh, was found dead in his hotel room this past weekend.
The cause of death appears to be overdose. So sad. He's been in our thoughts since we heard the news.
But what's crazy weird is that he actually predicted his own death in a dream weeks before!!!
Two weeks ago, Mikey tweeted:
This is giving us chills!
You're SOO good, Dan Talevski!
We've probably played Pumped Up Kicks about 1,468 times now, so hearing a new spin on it is quite refreshing!
Are you listening, Foster the People?? Weezer isn't the only one covering you!
Looks like someone decided to return the favor! How nice!
After Weezer covered Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicked at an Orange County show earlier in the month, the latter band in turn performed a frankly FANTASTIC version of the former's classic track, Say It Ain't So, at the 2011 Outside Lands Festival!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
So RAD! And again - such an awesome gesture, on both of their parts!
What do U think?? U feeling Foster the People's tribute to Weezer?
Looks like everyone is just as crazy about Foster The People as we are!
For their first time ever, Weezer decided to surprise the crowd at Orange County's Pacific Amphitheatre by playing their cover of Pumped Up Kicks!
Just like the original, it's a-mazing!!!
Check it out (above) and see for URself!

So this is the new thing, huh? Forget world tours! It's about cruisin'!
Weezer has just announced that in January of next year, they will set sail on a cruise created especially for their fans. They're calling it a "musical festival at sea" and have invited a slew of other artists to play along with them on the ship.
Check out the video from the band (above) to learn more!
Hmm. Maybe this is something some other artists should consider.
Yes, GaGaloo, we're talking to you! Let's take you little monsters on an ocean voyage!!!
