"Caveman" is a Weezer demo from Summer 2012. It was leaked mysteriously in October of 2017 by a redditor who claimed to have an unreleased demo for the song "QB Blitz," but when he sent a download link, it was "Caveman" instead. The user later posted a link that claimed to be unreleased song "I've Thrown It All Away," but the file was just a joke remix of "I'm Your Daddy."

Little is known about the song, although an allthingsweezer member claims to know that it was recorded in the Summer of 2012 and that it was in contention for Everything Will Be Alright in the End, though the demo was not recorded as part of a larger project. A month later, three demos from the same recording session were leaked - Call the Police, El Presidente, and the 2007 Deliverance at Hand! demo of East Coast vs. West Coast with a new bridge and drums from Pat Wilson.

Lyrics

Who needs another Lou Ferrigno
Splitting his shirt when things slip out of his control
Wise men do say that honey gets more bees than vinegar
I'm not sure, so I guess I'll try and let a tantrum out

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

I'd like to be a soft and cuddly guy
Sing songs, tell jokes, and while away the evening time
But they won't take me seriously, they'll think that I'm a puff
No drugs, I'll have to show 'em what I am made of

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and hitting
This is the way we get to munch a carcass
Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and stomping
Just like our friend, the mighty brontosaurus

Aaaaahhhhh

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and hitting
This is the way we get to munch a carcass
Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and stomping
Just like our friend, the mighty brontosaurus
