This is what happens when people see you too much:
But all of that exposure has now created this :
Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since “Pinkerton,” and what happens? Another pile of crap like “Beverly Hills” or “I’m Your Daddy.”
If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought “Pinkerton” pitch in $12, we will meet our goal. I beg you, Weezer. Take our money and disappear.
The Stranger spoke to the originator of the campaign, James Burns:
Of course, even if $10 million is collected, there’s the whole other side of the equation where Weezer has to accept the payout and call it quits. Somehow, I don’t see Rivers taking the bait. But you never know! The dude is weird. Maybe he’d surprise us all.
And then we have Train.
WE’RE TIRED OF HEARING “HEY SOUL SISTER” BY TRAIN IN WHAT SEEMS LIKE EVERYOTHER TELEVISION AD. IT’S TIME TO PUT A STOP TO IT.
KNOW AN AD THAT USES THIS SONG? SUBMIT IT VIA THE TOP HEADER SO WE CANKEEP TRACK OF EVERYONE WHO APPARENTLY NEEDS SOME NEW TASTE IN MUSIC.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN PUT AN END TO THIS EPIDEMIC.
@KEITHSTOECKELER AND @BRADLEYSM—TWO GUYS THAT GOT FED UP
Either way I don’t see Weezer or Train going anywhere. Both bands are bigger than they ever have been and both keep making money.
Oh, and to add fuel to the fire Weezer are now claiming they’ll break up for 20 million. Classic.
