"So, it's Weezer's metal homage album, but it sounds like every other Weezer album released in the past decade, but with way more nostalgia and twee references slathered all over it. Yes, more."

Hash Pipe is more metal than this new cheese, also the only Weezer tune I enjoy.  I saw them for free with Live back in the day, it was worth every penny (Live was also torturous and whiny).

Uh, just because you mention Aerosmith and a Marshall stack in a song doesn't make it metal. WTF did I just listen to?

Just let it go already.

This is what you get for buying the Teal Album: you just encouraged them.

It's fark so... electric guitar = metal

So Weezer is simply going to keep on making fun of themselves as long as there is a buck to be made doing so? It beats a day job, I guess.

For a bunch of good metal homage music by a band that is not metal, I would suggest King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, specifically the album Infest the Ray's Nest. Their live bit on KEXP.org in support rocked nicely.

I'm sure they'll make something as good as the blue album again. Right? Right? It can't keep getting worse. Right? Right?

This is such garbage

also Weezer has 15 farking albums?

It sounds like third rate pop punk from 10 years ago, its sooooo watered down

Blue album and Pinkerton are canonical alt rock IMO

Why is this a thing and who told Weezer it was okay?

Toto was more metal than Weezer will ever be.

Go! Go! Toto, Go!

Most of the radio stations in Oklahoma played Lightning Crashes constantly after the bombing in 1995.

Fark that. The real "Long Awaited" release is coming out on the 23rd. Landscape Tantrums, which is early unfinished pre-Rick Rubin recordings of what would become Deloused In The Comatorium.

I loved Weezer so much when their first two albums came out. I was one of the nerds downloading shiat off Karl's korner on the website when they were planning the big Green album comeback. Hell, I think Maladroit is great. But everything from the Red album on has just been sad. I feel like they're stuck in some weird corner of 2003 and can't get out while the rest of the world has moved on.

thesharkman: [Youtube-video https://www.youtube.com/embed/mvAGBz4Z​Jm4] this doesn't get the love it deserves


At a job I worked many years ago we would take turns playing our ipods on one of those speaker docks while we set up for the day's work.  One day it was just me and another dude who was a bit older. My ipod made it into the dock and this song came on at some point.  It took him a minute or so after listening to the lyrics when he asked me who the band was, then said "this is awesome."  He gave another nod of approval when the finger tapping part comes up near the end.

That whole album was pretty fun.


And while this song isn't as good, this should bring this thread full circle...
