I love Weezer. There, I've said it. Pinkerton is one of my favourite albums of all time so for me a new Weezer album is something to get mildly excited about. Their last one was pretty crap, but it's already looking good for their soon to be released sixth album, the third to be self-titled. Here's a picture (please note Rivers Cuomo's look, I think it's called 'gay country singer'):
The first single from the album is called 'Pork And Beans' and was written in response to the band's record company wanting them to record some hit singles, hence the Timbaland name-check. They've made a pretty amazing video for it too, one that features a host of youtube 'stars' such as the guy who gave us 'Chocolate Rain' and that hysterical (as in overly emotional) Britney-loving guy (is it a guy? It might not be...). Anyways, the video is great and the song is typical Weezer, i.e. not very innovative but somehow much greater then the sum of its parts. Rock on Garth!
