Weezer Didn't Sell Album Title

Posted by: Paul Tao (08/24/10)
In case you read the rumors that Weezer named their new album Hurley because of product sponsorship, the band want you to know that it is not true.

Does not change the fact that the title and cover are a stupid idea.

Sounds like some sort of cover up. You don't just mistakenly believe in some sort of marketing strategy; I think that may have been some sort of original plan, but maybe it was scrapped at the last minute. I don't even know, I'm still looking forward to the Blue/Pinkerton tour (BP tour? haha).

kinda funny that he thought the album was funded by Hurley in the first place

edit: well, after seeing the original interview it's just kinda weird.

I somewhat don't believe it...I'm fine with the title, but the title with the cover is absolutely stupid. I hate this cover so much. Lost isn't even a bad show, but I just can't respect Weezer with that cover. Not expecting much from this album.


And I don't believe this. He flat out said in the interview, "Part of it was funded by Hurley". He's covering it up, as someone said above.

I kinda like the ridiculousness to the cover. I'm not going to take Weezer seriously anymore, to me I will enjoy them the same way I enjoy Reel Big Fish.

why would a member of the band not even know?

if I was in Weezer, and "Weezer paid for the record", I would want to know where the money was going.

Yeah, there's no way the member of the band could think that Hurley sponsored the record when they had done it themselves. He would know who sponsored the record, that seems like something he would know, not to mention he should know the reason they named it that.... Definitely a cover up of some sort.
