that's pretty sick. can't wait to hear some more songs. the like chorus part was a little too distorted for me but it flowed pretty well.

has anyone seen the pattern? lol... all the pop punk bands kinda drifted from there old sound with major labels and radio friendly sound. then everyone calls them sellouts and they bring back the old sound.

1) weezer is not and never was pop-punk
2) they've been on a major label since blue and have always had a 'radio friendly sound' (not that that's a bad thing)

meh beverly hills was so not weezer. the blue album was real sloppy and very unradio friendly. and that was the beauty of weezer. not to dis them that they have made it big as a band but hell, bring back the blue album magic.

dude, blue album came out the same year as in utero (or right after). sloppy was kinda "in".

now you might have a point with pinkerton. very dark and even sloppier.

not to detract from their creativity and originality. i love weezer.

edit: still listening to the new song. been on repeat since i first posted.

and i agree "beverly hills" was not weezer. but rivers does what rivers wants to do.

blue album was not sloppy. and it had several radio friendly songs.

Buddy Holly? Say it Aint So? Undone-The Sweater Song? In the Garage? No One Else? Surf Wax America? hell, i could see almost every song on that album being released as a radio single.


if you want to talk about not being radio friendly, lets discuss Pinkerton instead.

agreed ... sorta. i do see his point. there's still a lot of raw quality in that album (in a good way). but i definitely agree pinkerton validates his point much more.

i don't see his point about not being radio friendly either. blue album is straight-up pop songs.

well, it might have been a little sloppy, but it wasnt that bad.

Blue album is probably one of the most radio friendly albums i can think of though. like i said, almost every song could have been put on the radio as a single, except maybe Only In Dreams.


but yeah, he definitely would have made a better point using Pinkerton. not many songs on there would have made good radio singles. they were all great songs though.

yeah it could be radio-friendly but just to the right ear. most people wouldnt want to jam out to any weezer songs on the blue albulm because they are so simple and sloppy. and when i say sloppy i mean it in the best way possible. thats what made weezer weezer.

In the Garage as a radio single? i hardly think not. taking about dungeons and dragons is hardly material for a radio single. thats reaching to a small audience (of which i am included ) But yeah, i do see your point, but no songs made it to the radio and i think that there is a reason for that. not everyone can related to weezer and thats the beauty of them. they cater to misfits and outcasts because they are misfits and outcasts.

damn, i love weezer.

*opens itunes and listens to the blue album*

EDIT:

musically yes, they could be played on the radio, but lyrically, they are the farthest thing from being played on the radio

but most of them dont have lyrics about D&D.

i mean, Buddy Holly, No One Else, Say It Aint So, Surf Wax America. songs like those. the lyrics arent really that weird.

its not always about the lyrics anyway. if the song sound catchy, people will probably listen to it.

i mean look at some of the hip hop and rap that is popular. most of those songs dont even make sense, but people like them.

That was awesome. Can't wait now.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

i see what your saying and i half agree, but the way that old school weezer would take things i dont think that main stream radio would tolerate it.

i mean like they dont say "yyyyouuuuu" enough or announce the name of their band enough by dropping "weezer" ten times in their song
