Actually better than Weezer to me.

Edit: I like some Weezer.

- My Name is Jonas
- No One Else
- Why Bother?
- The Good Life
- Suzanne
- Island in the Sun
- Pink Triangle
- Hash Pipe
- Buddy Holly
- El Scorcho
- Say It Ain't So

Say what you want about 2012 Weezer, but Blue album and Pinkerton are 2 of the greatest albums ever.

Great set list, I'mma play it now.

Nice set list, and really cool that they did this. Lots of mistakes and shakey vocal parts, but this is just a lot of fun and not meant to be taken too seriously. Nice job Punchline!

Searos 10/31/12 10:20 PM

I find it cool cause I believe they started off as a Weezer cover band way back in the day. Its good they drew from weezer's 3 best albums but as much as Blue, Pinkerton, and Green are awesome I would love to hear them cover Perfect Situation.

punchlinekid182 10/31/12 10:57 PM

I love these guys

I totally agree. When I saw them at the Aragon for their Memories tour, I was ecstatic when they ended the first set of the show with it. Say what you will about everything post-Pinkerton, they're a great live act and put on a great show.

There are plenty of good Weezer songs post-pinkerton just not as many good albums in whole. Green to me is still one of their best and I like it in full but after that it is a mixed bag. Really not a fan of Raditude or Red but even those 2 albums have at least 1 song I actually enjoy. Perfect Situation from Make Believe is also one of their best songs if I was to judge. Despite the comical nature of Beverly Hills as the opener to that album Make Believe is probably my 4th favorite. Hurley is pretty good but I would not go as far to say solid overall.

Yeah I'd agree with all that, though I do find myself listening to Maladroit a lot more than all of them. I think that's their most solid album post-Pinkerton.

I haven't listened to that one as much. It never really resonated much with me but I recognize it had a lot better songs than their goofier work that came after. I think thats why I like Make Believe cause it sorta reminds me of Pinkerton. I will give Maladroit a few more listens.

Cool. It's definitely got some good songs. A hard rock sound, harder than Green for sure, but it has some good hooks for sure.
