Adam Sandler has gone all-out with his latest Happy Madison holiday party, teaming up with rock royalty for a night of performances alongside the likes of KISS’ Gene Simmons, Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello and Courtney Love.
Friday night saw Sandler and his good m8s (who appear to mostly be people who reached peak fame during the ’90s) sing up a storm, with appearances from other musos like Vanilla Ice, REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and Styx’s Dennis DeYoung.
Much of the night and its all-star performances have found their way onto social media, including Sandler’s solo take on the AC/DC classic TNT…

Morello is said to have joined Sandler for a song as well, while Vanilla Ice dropped his 1990 smash hit Ice Ice Baby, getting those 90’s vibes flowing as strong as ever.

Gene Simmons took to the stage with Sandler to rock out the KISS classic Rock and Roll All Nite…

According to Stereogum, the guestlist for Sandler’s bonkers shindig also reportedly included Josh Gad, Saginaw Grant, Rick Springfield, David Spade, Taylor Lautner, Joey Fatone, Nick Swardson and Martin Kove from Karate Kid.
It’s pretty safe to say you’re not getting an invite next year unless you’re a ’90s icon…
