Weezer "beverly hills"

Holy crap! The new Weezer track is... c r a p.

Hey he even says '... piece of crap' at the beginning of the song.

"Beverly Hills" shows Rivers Cuomo sounding like what he is, an extremely nerdy/white/closet rapper, doing the big anthemic sounding rock thing. Maybe if he could do what Beck can do this song wouldn't sound like the joke it is. And the 70's Peter Frampton talk box solos? Huh?

    It's not that bad.

    My son was visiting a friend at Harvard and spent the night. He came home to proclaim, "I took a shit next to Rivers Cuomo!" I'm so happy for him. ;)

    There is nothing wrong with the new Weezer record. It's a good, fun record. It's not rap, it's not nerdy and I dont know why you are trying to compare them to Beck. Just because they are both signed by Geffen records, doesn't mean they are the same. Beck is something completely different from weezer. I agree that Becks' new album is good but it isn't a benchmark for new records. Anyway Rivers is a great song writet. After all he is the man who disguised a song about male prostitution, as a song about drugs.

After all he is the man who disguised a song about male prostitution, as a song about drugs (Hash pipe).

    Uh....It doesn't really come off as rap to me. He's speaking the lyrics, sure, but it's not like rap....

  11. Give Rivers a break he's been going to school for god's sake. The song ain't that bad either, it will make money and ain't that what singles are for? It might not be his best work but it’s a damn site better than all the other crap being passed off as music (The Rasmus for example).

    Wake up Weezerheads! Weezer's only good when they stick their name on other people's sounds... Hash Pipe was definitively stolen (can't remember if they won or lost the lawsuit, but it doesn't matter in my mind), so I have to assume that's their modus operandi

    Not a hige Weezer fan here but I do like much of what they have done. I think Beverly Hills is one of the better songs they've done. It sticks in my head all day long! I love it even if it is cheezy pop radio music.
