"I don't know if Weezer hates its fans or just the (apparently) stifling concept of sincerity, but you should listen to these two new songs if you weren't already convinced of Weezer's contempt for music."

I'm not sure I want to watch those videos.
Although that doesn't really surprise me.
Why the hell is Pat Wilson singing vocals and playing guitar. He's a way better drummer! The last good thing they did was those demos that never made an album! Then before that it was Pinkerton.
It's a bit cringing for a man of his age to be singing that junk....
all is forgiven
Weezer deserted you a long time ago.
They WILL release a classic album this year.
Unfortunately, it'll be the Pinkerton reissue. They can't possibly fuck THAT up. Can they?
...you just know the batshit bastard is going to re-record the whole thing on kazoo and replace vocal melodies with auto-tuned fart noises..... :-(
I think you'll find.
The songs are awful. However we live in hope of something as good as Pinkerton to appear one day.
there's a great song made with that opening line:
i'm a shamed of weezer, how can they stand on the stage and play that crap.
when Rivers was still in his early twenties and could get away with writing songs about this kind of stuff, now that he's a fat, un-cool doofus in his mid 30's, writing songs called 'Who's Your Daddy' about pursuing younger girls just make him sound like a predatory paedophile
oh, and someone tell him to pick his fucking guitar back up again, he looks like a tit
