If you're craving a little vintageJimmy Eat World, you're in luck. The Arizona rock band has a vintage video on YouTube from a performance way back in the day, at the 1997 Mind Over Matter Fest in Detroit.
And if you happened to miss the band when it performed on the hip kids' show Yo Gabba Gabba!, there's a video floating around of a look at the band behind-the-scenes as they filmed a performance of "Beautiful Day" on -- wait for it -- flying dogs and cats.

In honor of their current national "The Blast and the Furious" Tour with Oh Sleeper, PM Today, and I Am Alpha and Omega, Greeley Estates' vocalist Ryan Zimmerman got all did up in a smoking hot promo shot paying homage to the oh-so-excellent flick The Fast and the Furious. The band is also gearing up for a summer tour in Japan with August Burns Red, which kicks off June 17. Unfortunately, the group has no Arizona dates scheduled so far, so you might want to start saving up for Asia now.
