Nothing makes me happer when a band that has always sucked alienates its last die-hard defenders and reaps the horrible reviews it’s always deserved. I always associated Weezer with early 90s joke bands like POT USA, and never understood why indie rock critics who took them seriously. I guess if you had a cool older brother who listened to rock and roll, and you really wanted to piss him off, this is what you’d listen to.
Perhaps it takes about 10 years for ironic to be recategorized as moronic. Which means that other artists that came out of the same wave of music-industry-sponsored anti-Nirvana pro-shallowness backlash, like Gwen Stefani and Scott Weiland, should almost be out of time.
