Eh. I heard it on the radio today a couple times. Wasn't too impressed. But not too bad. I liked Hurley, though. Surprisingly.

it is a bit weird to hear lyrics so directly addressed to the audience. It feels a bit undignified and desperate.

I think it's done tastefully, and Weezer has NEVER been known for deeper meaning in lyrics. I don't mind a direct approach occasionally.

This will follow the same pattern as every Weezer album release:

Stage 1: This is going to be so awful. Weezer needs to stop embarrassing themselves

Stage 2: Hey this single is surprisingly not awful. I might listen to the album just to see if they don't completely fuck it up.

Stage 3: Wow, guys, this actually isn't too bad. I'm going to probably rate it either a 3 or a 3.5, but it has potential to grow.

Stage 4: (6 months to a year later) This grew off me a little but it's still okay I guess.

Stage 5: (1 or more years later) Who gives a fuck about Weezer? Album is shit lol butts.

Stage 6: Oh a new Weezer album is in the works again? This is going to be so awful. Weezer needs to stop embarrassing themselves.

I enjoy the lack of subtlety here. It's like they're saying, "we fucked up! We get it." And wrote a kick ass song. It seems sincere.

It feels like they're blaming the fact that they strayed too far away from rock rather than the fact that they started making bad songs with this. Kind of like a rockist sort of attitude which is just annoying to me. I haven't heard much from these guys but I know Memories which was a much better song than this
