"Why Are We?" is a song by Rivers Cuomo.



"Why Are We?" was demoed by Rivers Cuomo in May of 1992.[1] Karl Koch described the song as "a weird Rivers song, possibly not intended for weezer at all".[1] The song was leaked online through the site's demo storefront on November 7, 2020. The song was then sold to a single user when the storefront officially launched a few days later on November 11, before being sold to all users as part of the digital compilation Alone IV: The Blue-Pinkerton Years on November 22.
