(RNN) - Remember how hard you worked in the '90s to look like you'd just rolled out of bed and hadn't showered in about three days? Flannel and white tees, ripped up jeans, combat boots and questionably clean hair were the uniform of the day. And Pearl Jam was your jam.

While we don't recommend repeating the fashion mistakes of the decade of grunge, we can happily report that Pearl Jam is back with new music and a new album on the way.

Mind Your Manners, from PJ's 10th album, dropped this week. The album, Lightning Bolt, is out Oct. 15. It's the band's first album since 2009.

Rock on.

Another '90s flashback ready to flash forward is Mazzy Star. Best known back in the day for their acoustic one-hit Fade Into You, the band released a new single, California, on Tuesday.

The song will drop on their first album since 1996, Seasons Of Your Day, out Sept. 24.

Have Mercy!

And speaking of flash backs ... everyone's favorite Elvis-obsessed '90s uncle has reunited with his band.

Full House's Uncle Jesse will perform with his fictional band, Jesse and the Rippers, on Friday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Of course we wouldn't kid you about that.

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, posted a short Instagram video of himself singing the Full House theme on Monday, teasing the performance.

No word if Michelle, DJ, Stephanie, Danny or Uncle Joey will join.

Will we be watching? To quote Michelle Tanner, "You got it, dude!"

The wait is over - new Sara Bareilles music is here

Sara Bareilles has a brand-new, spit-shined-and-polished album ready for your listening ears. And a new lyric video for the most breathtaking track on the entire record, Manhattan

Immerse yourself in the enchantment of her voice in a flawlessly written song that ranks among her career best. 

And grab a tissue. Seriously. Don't say we didn't warn you.

They have a Grammy ... and a Little League team

Jay-Z owns a piece of the Brooklyn Nets ... the Black Keys have a Little League team.

No matter what the win-loss record is at season's end, a team of Ohio Little Leaguers are officially the coolest on the diamond this summer, sporting jerseys from their sponsor, The Black Keys. 

Yes, Grammy award-winning rock band, The Black Keys.

The Keys paid the $300 required to sponsor the team after being asked by a friend. Drummer Patrick Carney instagrammed photos of the jerseys, with team colors of orange and black.

And apparently it's not just the kids who think it's cool. The league is getting so many requests for jerseys, they're working to make them available to adults as well.

We'll keep you posted.

Universal reviving vinyls through new crowdfunding project

Need help rounding out your vinyl collection?

Universal Music Group's vinyl devision, UVinyl, recently launched a crowdfunding platform, the Vinyl Project, to reissue rare and out-of-print records in vinyl format.

Releases being considered for the project include Sonic Youth's Goo, Bjork's Biophilla and even Nirvana's MTV Unplugged performance, according to UK online magazine FACT.

The Vinyl Project will be similar to Kickstarter - if enough people back a certain album by funding pre-orders, they'll be green-lit for limited edition reissues.

She's been compared with Ingrid Michaelson and Joy Williams - great compliments, to say the least, but we think Kel has a sound of her own. With a clear, sprightly voice, her songs are quirky, happy and catchy - and quickly make their way to your heart.

And Finally ...

There are talented beatboxers and then there are those who are born with an entire orchestra in their mouth.

Australia's Tom Thum falls into the latter category.

Thum recently put on a performance at TedxSydney and armed with nothing but a microphone he created incredible soundtracks including scratched vinyl, Michael Jackson songs, and an entire '50s jazz band.

We'll put it this way, you just have to see to believe.
