Weezer offered $10 million to retire
2010-10-06 by LTDA | 219 Comments

Seattle resident James Burns has begun an effort to raise $10 million in order to pay Weezer to stop making music.

Burns hopes the raise the money on DIY fundraising website thepoint.com, with individuals encouraged to pledge $12 apiece to the cause.

Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson responded on Twitter, joking: “if they can make it 20, we’ll do the 'deluxe breakup'!”

Burns' full statement reads: "I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s.

"But this isn’t about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers.

"Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since 'Pinkerton,' and what happens? Another pile of crap like 'Beverly Hills' or 'I’m Your Daddy.'

"This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now.

"I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year.I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.

"I’m sick of hearing about whatever this terrible (and yes, even if you like the early stuff, you should be able to admit that they are wretched now) excuse for a band is up to these days.

"If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought 'Pinkerton' pitch in $12, we will meet our goal.

"I beg you, Weezer. Take our money and disappear."

Boycotting buying new weezer albums would save people money and make the same point even though it might not have the same immediate dramatic effect as this. This would probably never happen though and considering Hurley was a slight improvement it seems increasingly impossible that it ever would.

The amount of attention this thing has gotten is unreal. I expected to ruffle a few feathers, but this is pretty insane.

So, I’ll be shutting this campaign down at noon on Monday.

Why?

Well, I didn’t raise $10 Million, and Weezer are still a band, but I accomplished everything I ever hoped to.

I figured since the internet wasted so much of my time with all the ridiculous articles about the new Weezer album, I thought I’d return the favor and waste some of the internet’s time.

Boy howdy, did I succeed.

So in case there was any doubt (and if there was, all I can say is that you’re dumber than me) that this campaign was anything more than a giant piss-take, I’ll leave you with these last words:

I did it for the lulz.

How much money did they raise? I heard some guy raised $19K just because people didn't want him to eat his pet rabbit.

Still not as bad as all the crazy fucks buying ipads and iphones with Flappy Bird installed for upwards of $100,000

Yeah it sucked, that's why I deleted it the day I downloaded it lol. Crap though, I could go for $100K, that'd be nice.

Yeah, if I had an Ipad I would have sold it with Flappy Bird for that much and actually bought something useful.

Personally, I love the Red Album, Raditude, and Hurley. Their worst album is Maladroit. Everything else is pretty great.

Also - this news story is from 2010.

Weezer had two bad albums. Granted, both were like the shittiest albums ever made, but everything else they've done has been mostly good or at least average. Peeps need to chill.

"I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s. But this isn’t about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers."

So he doesn't even have any emotional investment in the band's past sound. What do they owe him if he never supported them in the first place? I never liked most Weezer material either, but this guy is just a huge prick.

Blue Album and Pinkerton are the only good stuff from this band. Everything else they have ever done sucks. So yeah, Weezer better make something good, otherwise they really should get their asses on the retirement chairs.
