The Pain is Constant and sharp.


Speculation of Origin

Little is known about the origins of the pain. Some suspect the cryptic Oracle may know origins of the pain. The pain did, however, make a sharp rise in the 20th century in the Swedish laboratory of Dr. Helack. Sgt. Hinnage and Sgt. Michalek fought valiantly to destroy the evil doctor, and did so, but were unaware of the Doctor's seed, Dr. Melack.

The Rise of Hogan

Main article: BurntPork: A Short Story
Whilst seeking to find the plague of Hinnage's pain, a young farm boy from rural Texas named Ben Hogan stumbled upon the proponent of The Pain himself, Dr. Melack. In the early era of the saga, prominent minions of Dr. Melack such as Islandjuice and Miatafreak played an integral role in impeding Hogan's quest. However, with the aid of Shep and the Oracle, Hogan managed to overcome these forces.

Connection To Rivers Cuomo

There are multiple references to The Pain throughout the history of Weezer. It is speculated that when Rivers went into seclusion between Pinkerton and The Green Album he discovered the true source and has since been traumatized, thus rendering his artistic output mediocre.
