It’d be a fun song if it weren’t for the extremely forced guitar riffs.
new album art is somehow even worse than Green Day's
Digging: Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell
Ha! Van Weezer. Nice. This is cheesy but kinda fun.
This is turning into a weird year for '90s bands paying homage to the '70s and '80s. First Incubus put out that that Bowie-lite tune and now Weezer takes their Van Halen love to an actual record?
I wish that new Rentals album would come out already.
Digging: A Witness - Red Snake
I think the same, like it's cheesy and kinda dumb but fun. Definitely prefer it over their boring 2000 stuff even if its goofy
Wow this is a relief they went back to old signature style instead of the hipster pop shit they were trying to pull the last 2 albums. This is weezer.
So basically it's White-era Weez with more shred. I am okay with this.
I'm curious as to why they're announcing it so far in advance, seems odd considering the Black album was only like 6 months ago...
^ Seems like they felt they needed something to go along with the big bombastic triple promotion they're doing with Green Day and Fall Out Boy. I'll be honest, I listened to the Green Day and Fall Out Boy tracks where I otherwise wouldn't have bothered, simply because I was interested in this cross-promotional hype event.
Can, but won’t
This sounds like something from White which is a good thing.
Digging: Courtney Swain - Between Blood and Ocean
Feel like Weezer could still put out some clever, catchy stuff if they didn't rush every single release
it's alright, I suspect the record will be much better.
Hopefully another one like Ewbaite
Digging: The Clash - Franklin
I mean... at least its better than everything on their past two albums
Maybe I'm just getting old and nostalgic, but I've been jamming this all day.
If I want to listen to Van Halen, I will listen to Van Halen. Weezer should have broken up a decade ago. It is their best in 5 years, but I feel like they are releasing too much too soon and we are going to hit a new low for them.
Surprisingly not bad at all.
Can't wait for the new album
I loved the Black album
I'm ok with anything where Rivers brings out his inner shred monster, so I'm digging it. The intro and riffs are straight out of EVH's playbook
Digging: Tool - Fear Inoculum
this is just about the worst song I've heard all year
Digging: Thom Yorke - Anima
Guitar work is so damn good. I love it.
"this is just about the worst song I've heard all year" lmao bit of an over-exaggeration there
no seriously I don't know why but I just absolutely hate this
I....like it actually
Of all the questionable decisions Cuomo has made over the past decade and a half NOW is when you want him to stop? Right when he might actually be making something good again. Wow...
Yea this is pretty good considering the waste of time PD, Teal, and Black were
Album title is retarded and so is the video. Song is meh at best. You’re what, like fucking 50 years old, just stop with the schoolboy bullshit, come on...
"just stop with the schoolboy bullshit"
*calls album title and video "retarded", in 2019*
but they've done worse i guess
Shittier they get the quicker they release new music
Who’d have thunk it
I'm not much of a Weezer fan, but I kinda respect that they're pretty much doing whatever they want now instead of trying to please their fans
Also, wow that riff sounds like REO Speedwagon lol
Digging: The Unicorns - Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
“The inspiration came from our live shows, where, in the middle of ‘Beverly Hills,’ unlike on the album, everything stops and I just break out with this crazy guitar solo. We noticed that, recently, the crowd just goes crazy when I do that. So it feels like maybe the audience is ready for some shredding again.”
Sounds like they're trying to please their fans almost entirely haha. But hey, the track is fun and it seems like they're enjoying themselves, so.
Digging: Starset - Divisions
Got my cryin' like when Aslan died
“*calls album title and video "retarded", in 2019*”
Oh, is “retarded” a word that is out of fashion now? Or maybe it’s just so un-PC that it’s incredibly offensive?
Actually it's more that only tweens who don't know any better and 40 year old dudes who want to seem cool on the internet still use it. Hence the general irony of the comment.
Ok after a second listen this isn't as bad as I first thaught but still not that good
“Actually it's more that only tweens who don't know any better and 40 year old dudes who want to seem cool on the internet still use it. Hence the general irony of the comment.”
lol sure m8
"retarded" is schoolboy bullshit language, and that has nothing to do with PC culture. Nobody is trying to curtail your free speech, they're just chuckling at your use of immature language.
