60 Wrong Sausages was a precursor to Weezer. It was founded by Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Pat Finn and Jason Cropper in 1991 in Los Angeles.
60WS held only seven practices in total between October 20 and November 20 of 1991, all at a cheap, filthy, and very popular with young starving bands rehearsal place called Fortress in Hollywood. The band rehearsed the performances of material from their Cholesterol EP as well as new songs like "The Barnaby Jones", "Tennis Ball" and "Run the Gamut". Additionally, old Bush songs like "Beyond Life" and "Crayon Man" were rehearsed. Cuomo's own Fuzz songs "Answer Man" and "Burn My Britches" were rehearsed and finally, the Wilson/Finn song "Sheriff Wong", which was a song about a member of law enforcement who carried a bong.
Over Thanksgiving weekend 1991, the band stayed at Finn's mom's house in Petaluma, and 60 Wrong Sausages played the Phoenix Theater, it's only gig. Matt Sharp, then living in El Cerrito CA (near Berkeley), attended this show, and was captured on video yelling "WHO HOLDS THE SCEPTER?" to the band between songs. The band's name came from an original name of "The Wrong Sausage." Apparently, one of the band members said: "No, it can't be just one wrong sausage. It needs to be, like, SIXTY Wrong Sausages!"

"Living Without You
" is a Maladroit
outtake that was released as a bonus track for international editions of the album.
The song was apparently written in 2001, and first recorded by the band during the late summer SnS Demos. It was performed live at many shows during the Midget Tour series, as well as at several Goat Punishment shows later in 2001. The song was one of many that Weezer demoed and worked on during the Maladroit sessions, and is in fact the only completed non-LP song from the album's recording sessions that has been released.
The 'in progress' versions of the song released on the official site during the late 2001 / early 2002 sessions had slightly different lyrics. Originally, the line was, "I'll be your bestest friend", but was changed to "I'll be your best of friends" for the final mix.

RIP Ric Ocasek
Ric Ocasek, who produced Weezer's first, third, and ninth studio albums, has passed away at age 75. Weezer owes much of their success to his artistry, guidance, and influence. He will be dearly missed.
