Is anyone else here a huge weezer fan?
would you please give a reason on why you like Weezer?
I myself have not heard of them though =/
You probably have heard their music, you just don't know it... Have you ever heard "Beverly Hills"? Surely you must have. It was like the most overplayed song on the radio a few years back. Beveryly hills..thats where I want to BE......livin in beverly hils <-- its like that :lol:
Yeah, I like some of their songs, but I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan (I guess I'm not really a huge fan of any group or artist though).
I would have considered myself a "huge Weezer fan"
up until the release of the Green Album in 2001. And everything after the Green Album -- pure trash. Sure, there are hints of their former glory here and there (I'd say -- on average, .5 songs per release post-2001: ie - "Pork and Beans", but which feels overly stock). To consider things objectively and not in an entirely nostalgic light; I'd say it's possible they haven't changed, and neither has their formula -- which arguably worked much better circa 1994-1996.
Their continued commitment to the release of horrible record after another is particularly painful for us twenty/thirty-something fans [from the nineties] to swallow: they are driving the stake deeper and deeper into the heart of a long-since dead, once magnificent beast -- dishonoring the corpse of a legendary creature with every one dimensional "American Gigolo"-like riff/stab.
Who knows where things went wrong. Probably the most popular theory is that the departure of Matt Sharp (Rentals) spoiled the songwriting. Bassists have been plug-and-play ever since. Whatever the cause of their demise, for the past five years or so, Weezer has sounded more like a heavily marketed record industry brand - than a band.
David Geffen: "Come on guys, release a new record and we'll give you another couple million.. Just make it sound like something the 13-17s will like. The A+R guys are going to do some really smart things with the marketing on this one.."
Usher is cranking out more inspired stuff.
Mods, please don't misinterpret my criticism as unbecoming: I've been very constructive, reasonable and appropriate here.
I'm not sure I follow.....sooo, you DON'T like them? They're pretty popular as of late. Not that I like em or anything, but its true.
Beverly Hills is a terrible song.
Yeah the blue album is one of the best and pinkerton is pretty awesome two.Every other album has a few good songs here and there.The red albums ok Everybody get dangerous is a pretty catchy song.
I could have guessed by your name that your a weezer fan. I do consider myself a fan, and I really like there new song "Potk and Beans" although my favorite is still "Buddy Holly."
I totally have to agree with you there.The pork and beans video is one of the best music videos of all time and when i hear buddy holy i can't help but be in a good mood.
Personally, I have always enjoyed Weezer. They don't top my Favorite Band list, but there is a lot of worse music out there. The Blue Album and Pinkerton are the best albums of their's IMO. But I have also enjoyed a handful of songs from everything beyond that, with my Perfect Situation being one of my favorites from recent years.
Its the best song off make believe.
I don't listen to them much in recent years. I prefer their older stuff. Back when Rivers was depressed.
Yeah it was easier to relate most times.
