Featured article: Album 5 Demos


Karlscorner-20020303-f.jpg

The Album 5 Demos are a collection of songs recorded in 2002 for the band's planned fifth album. All of the demos from this period were ultimately scrapped, though elements from certain songs were reworked for future songs. Weezer's actual fifth album, Make Believe, would not see release until 2005.

The first batch of demos, with some being recorded before Maladroit's release, reflect the band's earliest attempts at a fifth album. These sessions broke a lot of new ground, including Rivers Cuomo inviting other members to contribute and sing songs, an increased use of keyboards and organs, and reflecting a songwriting style by Cuomo which focuses more on storytelling and less on his own feelings. Also, a few SS2K songs were recalled for the sessions. In an AIM chat with Rivers Cuomo on January 8, 2002, Cuomo described the sound of Weezer's fifth album as "a combination of The Green Album and Pinkerton, if that's possible! And some Maladroit. But really it's a new different style."

Not much is known as to why the material was scrapped. full article | edit | previous featured articles

It was performed by Weezer for the episode titled "Bugs," which first aired on March 9, 2010. The song was later released on the show's compilation album Yo Gabba Gabba! - Music is...

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.
