My First Obsession: Needtobreathe's Bear Rinehart Loved Chuck Norris

Heroes come in many forms, and Needtobreathe frontman Bear Rinehart reminded everyone just how crucial Chuck Norris was to his childhood.

Despite never having seen an episode of Walker, Texas Ranger, Rinehart still idolized the legendary martial artist. "I was really into nunchucks. John Wayne was before that—John Wayne, and then Chuck Norris. I have no idea how that happened," he tells Fuse.

Danny Miller of folk/indie duo Lewis Del Mar, on the other hand, revealed that he was rather fond of pipe cleaners growing up.

"I used to tie pipe cleaners together, like, just two at a time. And I used to wave them around like they were a wand, and I would tell stories in my head...Super weird shit," says the New York native.
