That latest single with Pete Wentz in the video (Can't Knock The Hustle) is pure hell.

I'd like to put Rivers Cuomo in a pen on a pig farm and just see what happens

That's a great point and something that is definitely overlooked about Weezer. When they do a cringe-worthy pop song, they (most of the time) seem in on the joke.

Whereas when you have Billy doing singles like Run2Me it just seems desperate.

Yeah, it's god-awful. Feels like Summer (the lead single off of the previous album) was an embarrassment too. So there's definitely valid reasons to shit on Weezer, no doubt about it... But that's a good thing about them putting out music so frequently, when you get a new album every 1-2 years, it's easier to overlook the complete turds whereas with Billy when it's like an album every 4 years the turds really linger:rofl:

it's always just immediate shitting on Green or Make Believe, i've never heard the record but i've rarely heard ABOUT it either

what's the deal, does it even really exist?

It's pretty good actually, but nothing overly special. Here's a couple choice cuts you should definitely check out, brother. :cheers:

Mals Marola 12-18-2018 12:05 PM


i like the cover art a lot

(for Maladroit)

ninsp 12-18-2018 12:23 PM

Maladroit rules but it pissed a lot of people off because it was so heavy and didnít do well commercially because of that. All of the singles have pretty aggressive riffs

ninsp 12-18-2018 12:26 PM

It’s a lot like REM’s Monster

The guitars are loud and distorted with the same tone throughout so it kinda drags if that’s not your thing

Mals Marola 12-18-2018 12:34 PM

i love Monster

topleybird 12-18-2018 01:13 PM

I only wish that I could hear you whisper down
Mister fisherman, to a less peculiar ground
He gathered up his loved ones and he brought them all around
To say goodbye, nice try

Hey, let me in

Mals Marola 12-18-2018 01:22 PM


that one's beautiful

Monster is v. underrated tbh

Mals Marola 12-18-2018 02:55 PM

Yes, yes it is

I picked up some special edition with a full photo book & stuff for like $5 about a year ago

they played a piano version of "Let Me In" when i saw 'em in '08 that i'm pretty sure i have a clip of somewhere, but regardless, it did not disappoint

pale_princess 12-18-2018 02:59 PM

So sad and full of regret I never got to see em live.

Weezer was my 2nd fav band behind SP..
I first saw them in 94 & my mom dropped me off & they played 1 song and left..I was sad
But saw them in 96 at the Fillmore with Matt Sharp still in the band..soooo good. Saw them 10 times between 94-2001.. Saw them twice more in the last few years..they suck
My Eeyore burlesque act is to Tired of Sex
I'm Leslie Jones... I have had those same exchanges about Weezer..Death Cab & of course SP
