Weezer's new Red Album includes Heart Songs, a song that credits a bunch of musicians who inspired singer Rivers Cuomo and states that Nirvana is the reason his band got started.
The lyrics that give Nirvana's Nevermind its due:
Back in 1991
I wasn't havin' any fun
'Til my roomate said,
"Come on" and put a brand new record on
Had a baby on it
He was naked on it
Then I heard the chords
That broke the chains I had upon me
Got together with my bros
In some rehearsal studios
Then we played our first rock show
And watched the fanbase start to grow
I heart Nirvana too, but this sappy tribute song is excruciatingly bad and the roster of musicians is bizarre. Gordon Lightfoot, Debbie Gibson, Fresh Prince and Judas Priest?
