Weezer – Pork and Beans (2008)

April 17, 2008

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was getting into a bit of Weezer and what appropriate timing! They have a new album coming out soon (the Red Album) and judging from the sounds of their new single ‘Pork and Beans’ it sounds like a return to their earlier material. Woop Woop!

Okay, yeah the lyrics are a bit daft, ‘Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the chart, maybe if I work with him him I can perfect the art’, yeah… but overall this is one of the better things Weezer have done lately and considering the woeful lyrics of ‘Beverly Hills’ this is a step up, as is the rest of the song. Crunchy guitars in the chorus and fun acoustic guitar and drums during the verse. Super catchy and I love how the guitars in the chorus are so loud that they somewhat drown out the vocals. Only downside is the lack of a cool solo but really I don’t think it’s needed as making this a 3 minute pop songs just works quite well. Download or stream it below below and wait for ‘The Red Album’ to drop on the 24th of June.
