And the name of the new Weezer album is … Raditude. No joke. I categorically hate this album before it’s even released on October 27.
New single, “(If you’re wondering if i want you to) I want you to” has already landed on the radio.
It is impossible to remember a time when Weezer was not just a band worth listening to, but also one of the best at writing achingly catchy pop songs. The Blue Album and Pinkerton are long disappeared into the rearview mirror. When future music nerds debate the legacy of Weezer, surely they will insist that Rivers Cuomo should have died after Pinkerton, to cement his legendary status. Now? It’s just painful.
