if this isnt an anthem for living in the current dystopia then i dont know anthems.
that is my opinion and im wondering if anyone else here has stumbled on this and thought the same.
i find it profound and inspiring and my guess is it speaks to people who are looking for us.


All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad
All my favorite songs are slow and sad

I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I love parties, but I don’t go
Then I feel bad when I stay home
‘Cause I need a friend when I take a walk
I like spacin’ out when somebody talks

I wanna be rich, but I feel guilty
I fall in love with everyone who hates me

All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad, so mad)
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad
All my favorite songs are slow and sad

I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Dreamy morning, walkin’ alone by myself
Thinkin’ about life and tryin’ to find my way through hell
Sometimes I wish I was on an island
But then I’d miss the sound of sirens

All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad, so mad
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad
All my favorite songs are slow and sad

I don’t know what’s wrong with me
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Weezer was another one of my favorites growing up @PotstickerSwatstika.

The lyrics to this particular song are totally on-point in the very beginning when Rivers Cuomo says that all his favorite songs are "slow and sad".

Exhibit #1 from Cuomo's own catalogue:


This is NOW a millennial Weezer appreciation thread!

I was 100% certain the credits were gonna say ‘directed by Michel Gondry’. Pretty cutesy video, I guess Weezer’s always seemed cutesy to me, but I really only paid any attention to them when Green Album came out.

I bopped around and liked it ok, but I never delved back into the old stuff or picked up any of the new stuff.

It seems like they had a bit of a renaissance during White Boy Summer, Nick even mentioned the phenomenon a couple times when talking about his playlist. I’m glad they’re still out there connecting with new generations of young people.

Are you on the zoomer end of the spectrum @paltus ?

Only last year I've discovered their album Pinkerton, I don't know how I missed it back in the days. Everybody knew their sappy or stupid songs from mtv rotation (like hash pipe). But then again it's not surprising at all. Check out Pink triangle. The whole album oozes awareness of the women/mother question. Imagine the face their manager Morty Birnbaum made when they showed him the new material for their follow up album after their debut hit.
Pinkerton for some mysterious reason didn't receive much air time or critics' acclaim, but, shockingly, is their fans' favorite.
It's a very good piece of X'er music.

This song was way ahead of it's time. It's implicit.

Weezer - Buddy Holly (Official Music Video)


What's with these homies, dissing my girl?
Why do they gotta front?
What did we ever do to these guys
That made them so violent?
Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that

Don't you ever fear, I'm always near
I know that you need help
Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit
You need a guardian
Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that

Bang, bang a knock on the door
Another big bang and you're down on the floor
Oh no! What do we do?
Don't look now but I lost my shoe
I can't run and I can't kick
What's a matter babe are you feeling sick?
what's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you?
What's a matter babe, are you feeling blue? oh-oh!
And that's for all time
And that's for all time

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that

Appropriate for us pureblood rebels. Also Pat Wilson was banned from twatter for being too right wing.
