Weezer have responded to an online campaign to stop them from releasing another album, insisting they'll retire if anti-fans come up with $20 million. James Burns wants to silence the band by paying them off and he's embarked on a bid to raise $10 million to split the group. Burns claims the Buddy Holly rockers have failed to live up to their 1996 album Pinkerton and he's taking his crusade online to find followers around the world. The band is taking the campaign in its stride - with drummer Patrick Wilson joking they'll consider an inflated offer. In a post on Twitter.com, he writes: "If they can make it 20 (million), we'll do the deluxe breakup." Thanks for the report to Contactmusic.com.
