Appearances

Overview

I do have moments I love on [Maladroit], like 'Falling For You,'[sic] [...] Really powerful--the band's tight, and we're playing riffs. It would have been an album of that. Instead, I'm a bit confused when I hear it... I like some of the material on it, but the sound of it doesn't do much for me.

Brian Bell, Alternative Press, May 2005


"Fall Together" was written by Rivers Cuomo in 2001. It is first known to have been demoed as a band during Sage and Sound Recording in Hollywood in late August or early September of 2001.[1] The song was performed at shows beginning in November of 2001 and throughout the months leading up to and following the release of Maladroit in May of 2002.

During 2005 shows, Scott Shriner would sing the lead vocal instead of Rivers Cuomo.

In an interview from 2002, Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson cited "Fall Together" as his favorite song from Maladroit.[2]
