I find this absolutely hilarious. Whether or not you like this band, this is a truly entertaining story. Apparently, a group of people (henceforth referred to as “haters”) were so disappointed by Weezer‘s latest release that they are getting together to raise $10,000,000 to put an end to this Los Angeles rock band. The haters have this to say:
I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90’s.But this isn’t about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers.Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since “Pinkerton,” and what happens? Another pile of crap like “Beverly Hills” or “I’m Your Daddy.”This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now.
Looks like someone is not getting enough Justin Bieber on the music charts.
I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year.I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.I’m sick of hearing about whatever this terrible (and yes, even if you like the early stuff, you should be able to admit that they are wretched now) excuse for a band is up to these days.If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought “Pinkerton” pitch in $12, we will meet our goal.I beg you, Weezer. Take our money and disappear
I think this is a win-win situation for Weezer. Either they don’t agree to this and continue to make their millions playing music, or they get $10 mil to do nothing! If I were them, I’d “disband”, collect my $10 mil, and then “come back” under a new name: “Rezeew” (Weezer backwards).
Anybody else find the absurd humor in this?
