Monkey Iorna asks... who out of weezer is most like the fonz?
i definitely am
Themilkmonkey asks... On your new album, there is a song called "crab" and it's being really puzzling me what on earth is it about? Is it really about sexually transmitted diseases, or is my mind just dirty?
we're saying if you want crabs you can get them, just keep trying.
I ask myself what that song means every time we finish. It doesn't seem appropriate at the time, seeing we're at a show.
DanOsbourn asks.. is it really sex drugs and rock and roll 4 u then, or just ps2?
I've drawn a blank
if we could merge the two that would be perfect. We might try and write a video game about sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.
