Weezer surprised striking TV and movie writers on the Writers Guild of America (WGA) picket line with an acoustic performance outside Paramount Pictures’ iconic Los Angeles location this week. Imagine Dragons recently also brought live music to the WGA picket line.

While some picketers were thrilled with the performance(s), others had conspiracy theories that media companies were “pulling out every weapon in their arsenal to stop the writers strike,” alluding to not enjoying either concert.
