EASILY my third favorite record by them. Had way more punch to it than green, and had Slob on it, which is the best non-blue/pink song of all.

Unpopular opinion time: though the records he played on were their best, Matt Sharp was an obnoxious presence. Try to get through a live show or bootleg from that era and not want to tear your ears off with his intentionally shitty and obnoxious background vocals.

Make Believe is where they lost me, but then they won me back with the Red album Pork and Beans was a dope lead single.

I'm a big Matt Sharp fan too. I actually haven't listened to any of the new Rentals stuff, I'm gonna check that out.

It's dope, the fans actually picked Slob to be on the album. At the time the band was releasing all the demos on their website and conversing with the fans to get feedback on their message board.

lol how dare you! Matt Sharp was awesome live! He brought the quirky energy that has kinda been missing ever since... Don't get me wrong, Scott's a good dude and a damn solid bassist, but he just doesn't have that star quality

That's because Slob was a part of the album that was supposed to be the actual follow-up to Pinkerton. Then the label forced them to scrap it and make Green Album instead.

For some reason I read a biography about Rivers ~2005, and the guy comes across as a total asshole. There are some groupie stories in there that would not fly in 2018.

Matt Sharp cropped out the girl in the band for the cover art of "Return of the Rentals", he also did not share writing credits. Guy seems like a ladder climbing jerk. Plus the tunes are shite.

Pinkerton is overrated and I have no idea how it gets the "soul-baring" reputation. It has some good songs but just sounds like leftovers from the blue album with In-Utero drums.

Back in the days of the Weezer message boards, there was always a TON of threads about Matt Sharp and people wanting Matt Sharp to rejoin so in 2004 Rivers actually reconnected with him to try and get him back in the band. The idea was to get him in on guitar and Rivers would just sing (cause they didn't wanna oust Scott on his ass). Matt considered but ultimately ended up deciding to reboot the Rentals instead.



Too bad. Fans would have been STOKED. Gotta hand it to Rivers for trying though. Say what you will about the guy, but he listens to the fans.

“Sure you can rejoin the band. But only in a way that awkwardly includes other members that have nothing to do with the original lineup everyone cares about. And only under weird conditions. Youre good with that, right?”

Sounds strangely familiar.

The cool thing about Rivers is that if he makes some super corny pop song like Widow Wake My Mind, he'll just randomly release it and be done with it without so much as a whisper. He just released this the other day



kinda fun and quirky. The video's pretty funny, Rivers is a weird dude. Not the best song, but that's the cool part about releasing a track like this. No one cares if they don't like it because they weren't anticipating it in the first place.

Pretty sure Widow Wake My Mind came and went with a whisper too, just like all the other Teargarden stuff.

Many people don't remember or weren't paying attention, but that shit was HYPED. Lol it's funny to think back about really. There was so much good will in the fan-base and I think everyone was really willing to give the new project a shot and the band just burned the fan-base. I remember there was like months of anticipation between songs and then when a song would finally drop it sounded like some novice slapped together crap.

Maybe it was hyped here, but as someone who mentally checked out after Jimmy left and before Oceania came out, I can confirm that it wasn't even a blip on the pop culture radar.

Wow. Weezer sounded pretty brutal with the auto-tune going on during their performance of Africa on Dick Clarks Rocking New Year... At least it seems to be resonating with the youngsters... Everyone in the crowd is LOVING it.

More than you can say about current Smashing Pumpkins



Get a load of Rivers acting all smiley... Must realize that it's a high-profile performance.

It's pretty cool though. Weezer's had about 3 different surges of popularity... Usually a band gets 2 at most and even that's a rarity.

top two threads in this forum have currently culminated in discussions about Weezer

I thought this was a board about a certain number of Gallants or something?
