Fall Out Boy and Weezer competed against each other on Celebrity Family Feud, highlights of which are now available to view. The music-fueled episode aired Sunday (Sept. 20) on ABC, directly ahead of the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
First announced earlier this month, as 95.5 KLAQ reported, the alt-rock TV team-up surely entertained fans of both acts. It was hosted, of course, by Family Feud mainstay Steve Harvey. To round out the teams, actor Seth Green joined Fall Out Boy. Music producer Suzy Shinn partnered with Weezer.

Even though the episode received promotion ahead of time, it still seemed to catch some viewers by surprise, which EW pointed out. Twitter reactions to the Weezer and Fall Out Boy Feud ranged from pleas to have other rock bands compete, to anguish regarding the postponed “Hella Mega Tour.” The episode was likely filmed prior to the pandemic, as some interesting promotion for the proposed tour found Fall Out Boy also turning up on a special episode of another game show, The Prices Is Right, earlier this year.
That tour, which will find Fall Out Boy and Weezer joining Green Day on a concert trek across the globe, has been rescheduled for summer 2021. “Hella Mega” shows in the U.S. and U.K. were first scheduled for this summer before the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic curbed concerts worldwide.
For now, however, fans of those artists can watch Weezer and Fall Out Boy face off on Celebrity Family Feud. The exciting episode is bound to have rock lovers giddier than the game-starting (and hug-inducing) contest between Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.
