Ween Breaks Up – Watch Their Best Videos
The weird and wonderful journey of Ween seems to have come to an end. Yesterday, Aaron Freeman (Gene Ween) announced to Rolling Stone that the experimental rock band was breaking up after 25 years together.
This came as a big surprise to Mickey Melchiondo (Dean Ween), who co-founded Ween with his buddy Freeman back when they were junior high school students in New Hope, PA. “This is news to me, all I can say for now I guess,” Melchiondo wrote on his Facebook page.
If this really is Ween’s end, they leave a pretty unique legacy. Although the band didn’t see much mainstream success (their biggest hit was 1992’s ‘Pushing th’ Little Daisies,’ which only got attention because it was featured on ‘Beavis and Butt-head’), Ween acquired a large underground following thanks to their humorous and often politically incorrect brand of stoner rock as well as their ability to seamlessly jump between different musical genres.
The band didn’t make a lot of proper videos, but the ones they did captured their electic nature. Check them out, as well as some of Ween’s high energy live performances, below.
