Featured article: Vegeterrorists


Rivers Cuomo in the early 90s.

Vegeterrorists (or Veggiterrorists) was a moniker briefly used by Rivers Cuomo in the early 90s for an unreleased rap project. The name was listed in the Weezer Recording History alongside a song title called "Black Fur in the Hour of Chaos". Former Weezer guitarist Jason Cropper recalled the project in a 2019 Rolling Stone article. Said Cropper:

Cuomo decided he would write 50 songs in a row before allowing himself to form another band or play live again. He moved to Santa Monica, started attending college there, and recorded demo after demo on an eight-track cassette recorder. He wrote only 30 or so songs, but among them were “Undone – The Sweater Song” and other eventual Weezer tracks. Cropper says that around this time, Cuomo also made an entire, never-released rap album under the name Vegeterrorists – songs about his lifelong vegetarianism in styles akin to Public Enemy and Run-DMC. “Rivers can drop mad beats and spit mad rhymes with the best,” says Cropper. “And if I stayed in the band, we would’ve done records like that years ago.” (The only released evidence of this period is a striking demo of Cuomo covering Ice Cube’s “The Bomb” like a one-man Rage Against the Machine.)

"O Girl" is a song from Summer Songs of 2000 and an early contender for The Green Album.

In 2011, in a fan interview on Ustream, Brian Bell named it as one of his favorite unreleased Weezer tracks. On fansite AllThingsWeezer, Pat Wilson agreed. In 2015, Cuomo provided his own annotation for the song "Do You Wanna Get High?" on the website Genius.com, wherein he revealed that the song's subject is the same as both "O Girlfriend" and "O Girl".
