It's a very good time for a very good cause.

The annual Strange 80s benefit concert is returning in 2018 following its launch last year, and the line-up is kind of huge?

For the uninitiated, the Strange 80s benefit is an evening of entertainment, where music and television stars gather to cover timeless 1980s pop and rock hits for a good cause. The whole night of 80s entertainment benefits 320 Changes Direction, the not for profit established by Talinda Bennington, the wife of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, to help those suffering from mental health issues, depression and addiction.

The line-up this year includes Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy), Jinxx and Jake Pitts (Black Veil Brides), Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Derrick Whibley & Frank Zummo (Sum 41) and Telle Smith (The Word Alive) among an extensive list of television and social media stars. 

As well as a number of high-profile 80s performances, the event will also include a gallery of 1980s video games and chances to interact with some of the artists, as well as go head-to-head with them in game competitions that will be screened inside the venue during set change-overs. 

The Strange 80s Benefit is set to go down October 12, at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre.

Corey Taylor is returning to Strange 80s after performing last year, which you can see below:
