Weezer’s New Album Will Be Called… Wait For It… Weezer

posted by on April 1 at 18:44 PM

Seriously?

Their debut was called Weezer. Because of the bright blue cover, it’s known as The Blue Album.

Then their “comeback” record, the first release since Pinkerton, was also called Weezer. Because of it’s bright green album, it’s known as The Green Album. That was cute.

Now, their June 17th release, is also going to be called Weezer. Apparently this one will end up being known as The Red Album.

Via Rolling Stone’s Rock Daily:

The new Weezer album will be called… Weezer. For the third time in six albums, the band is going the eponymous route, except this time around the band are referring to their new one as the “Red Album.” Comprised of sessions produced by Rick Rubin, Jacknife Lee and themselves, frontman Rivers Cuomo says, “We put a lot of emphasis on blowing our minds with creative freakouts,” as evidenced by the probable first single “Pork and Beans.”

It’s not that cute anymore. But mostly because I haven’t liked a whole Weezer record since the Green Album.

So where does Malidroit fit in? That one isn't a color album, right?

Megan: You're high. All the =W= records are great. Well maybe not so much Make Believe. But the rest are tasty.

Blue album and Pinkerton are the only Weezer albums that are good. The Green album was the beginning of their decline. And Make Believe? Blech!

The reason the first 2 albums are the only good ones are because of Matt Sharp. His departure explains their long absense, and their lack of good tunes once they finally did return. The position of bassist has been a revolving door for them ever since.

The Rentals, on the other hand, are a wonderful and eclectic group, with interesting and exciting music.

Matt Sharp was the talented one.

Fuck Weezer. They've sucked for over a decade now.
