after reading the Rivers biography, these god-awful lyrics about making a hit song are no surprise. He can not write a song with an ounce of sincerity anymore.

the only reason its hard to stop giving this band chances is because its so easy to like chunky guitar pop on first listen. plus the inoffensive vocals..

Isn't Are 'Friends' Electric? a Gary Numan song? oh yeah it is, just done under a different name.

Anyhoo The Replicants did a good cover of it:

I laughed at the video, I thought it was pretty clever. Although no one is going to understand it in the slightest in a few years when all this shit is forgotten.

I'm still uncomfortable with that new bassist guy Scott. He is not cool at all. If Sharp was in that video it would be 100x better and have probably funnier stuff in it.

sharp's kind a douche too though, he's so obbsessed with himself being someone who is 'creative' with all his bullshit production collaborations and terrible new albums attempting new directions. Plus he took writing credits on 'Return of the Rentals' despite getting help on melodies from other band memebers... and he cropped out the girl in the band (bass player?) from the cover of the album without even telling her... what a dick.

Sharp's a genuinely nice guy. You should see him after the Rentals shows. He makes an effort to meet everybody and sign everything for everybody who wants to...and not begrudgingly, either. He's probably the coolest, most down to earth musician I've personally met (even compared to zwan-era Jimmy) And it's obvious the people he works with adore him too. Rivers has always been the dick (until about 3 years ago rumor has it) and that's why he can't keep a bassist around.

yeah, i thought it was him, but it's that evolution of the dance guy. it would've been cool to throw him in the background though, they seem to be on good enough germs.

They've only had two bass players since Sharp left. The original replacement for Sharp (Mikey Welsh) left the band because he had some kind of nervous breakdown, not because of any tension with Rivers (as far I know). And the current bassist has been with them for six or seven years now. Cuomo might very well be a dick, but Weezer's had a fairly steady lineup for a long time in spite of that.

I like Matt Sharp as much as the next guy, but I think it's obvious that Weezer just wasn't big enough to contain his ego and Cuomo's at the same time. There's probably plenty of blame to go around.

Actually, it's Rivers being a complete asshole nonstop that led to Mikey's nervous breakdown. I read this looooong confessional blog type thing where Rivers tried to go around and make amends with everyone in his life (including calling and apologizing to Mikey and his wife; it was around this time Rivers and Matt settled the lawsuit and wrote some songs together) at some point before the Make Believe album where Rivers details what a Nazi he is with his music and how he tries to bring the reigns in on his ego via meditation and charitable service.

anyone who has a nervous break down because their band leader who is making them rich and famous is hurting their feelings is a total douche. And besides, he had a drug problem.

p&b the song is unoriginal but catchy, p&b the video is unoriginal but entertaining (gung ho + light sabre drum stix = joy).....but having heard 8 tracks of the new album, i can definitely say there's much better songs on the upcoming album. i think it will be a respectable effort.

(to flux)
Rivers Cuomo apologist aren't we? In a marriage (which is what a band relationship essentially is), Rivers' behavior would be considered domestic abuse. Economic duress and being controlled by it is a mindfuck. Oh but he was on drugs that's right...it's all his fault. Face it-- RIVERS IS A DICK. You guys are in such denial!!!
