Let's Write a Sawng is the name of an online song writing collaboration between Rivers Cuomo and his fan base through his YouTube channel RiversCuomoAlone. On Wednesday, March 19, 2008 Rivers posted a link to the first step of the collaboration in his blog on his Myspace.


The title of the song has changed several times throughout the writing process. Originally, Cuomo chose the title "80s Radio", which then changed to "We're Turnin' Up the Radio", "Turnin' Turnin'" and finally "Turn It".

On NPR's "Fresh Air" Rivers said that he will be submitting it to Weezer for inclusion on Album 7 but if it does not make it, it will definitely appear on some other release.

The final version of the sawng, titled "Turning Up The Radio", is the first track on Death to False Metal.
