If you’re wondering if…

Some quick thoughts on Weezer’s new single before I get back to work.

(If you’re wondering if I want you to) I want you to is more pop/rock than their last single; more upbeat and cheerful. The guitar sound, especially the beginning, is very much like The Jam’s A Town Called Malice, although it doesn’t bother me. I really like the song overall and it’s definitely made me (even) more excited for their upcoming album. I seem to be one of the rare Weezer fans that likes songs from all over their discography (although Blue is the best).

    I am currently in love with this song. I dunno why…it’s not my favorite Weezer song, but it’s just so happy and cute I can’t help it xD

    Their Blue album was definitely my favorite, but I also like songs throughout their discography as well. It kind of bothers me when fans are like, “I wish they would go back to that Blue album style”, but I like their variety. It makes them more interesting I think 😀

      Yeah it’s so bouncy and cute, just the type of song I can’t resist replaying over and over XD

      I know I’m the same! I think it’s better how they’re obviously experimenting with different sounds. They always have a Weezer feel about them :3

    In my opinion, the very best fans ((of bands in general)) are the fans that keep an open mind when it comes to both the band’s newer AND older work … So often I see so-called fans doing nothing but talking shit about their apparent favourite bands, and it’s really kinda depressing. I mean, why would they even consider themselves fans?!?! o__O;

    It’s even worse when they make some kind of impact in an online community, and after awhile, everyone ‘respects’ them no matter what they say. Both Green Day and Avril Lavigne fanforum members are horrible for this, and it’s so freakin’ annoying! -___-;

      Yeah, exactly! Obviously you don’t have to like every one of your favourite bands songs, but complaining about the entire bands work because of one song is not what you’d consider a fan..

      I think it must be true of every band forum (and probably other forums). The band forums I follow all have people like that, that everyone just agrees with even though they’re talking rubbish. And they all have ‘popular groups’ where you have to “earn” your way into the group.. Forums are generally horrible (although this doesn’t stop me lurking XD)
