A lot has been made of the 2009 reunion of pop-punk legends Screeching Weasel — but the fact is, the band has broken up and re-formed numerous times since starting in suburban Chicago in 1986. Snotty, catchy and just sloppy enough to keep it real, the group became a beloved staple of the '90s punk scene — with everyone from Green Day's Mike Dirnt to Jawbreaker's Blake Schwarzenbach making guest appearances on Weasel albums — even as front man Ben Weasel became one of the punk scene's most infamous curmudgeons. The group's current lineup is its first minus founding guitarist John Jughead, which doesn't bode quite as well for this reunion as it could.
