Weezer recently did a song for State Farm. Head to the replies to see what resulted.

The most tragic part about this is that this is the only song I've ever enjoyed from them.


I can't tell if that's due to the humor or not though.

Sometimes, I think River is fucking with people. He's like, yeah we do things with big name companies 'cause they cut us checks. Then one day, he'll be like, "Oh, that was just a big prank. Had ya fooled mutha fuckas!"

Only thing Rivers did was show how dumb he is for making a state farm song. Next, Limp Bizkit is gonna do a Taco Bell forth meal song.

State Farm sponsored Weezer's Memories tour, I'm pretty sure they were contractually obligated to do this. That being said, musically, this sounds tremendous, sell-out or not.

...musically tremendous? Seriously?

The song is as generic as Weezer could have possibly made it, and I'm actually pretty happy about that - they can "suck the corporate cock" (as one of the most-liked comments on the video says haha) but I guess if they're not even gonna put effort into it, that's fine with me.

Sort of.

Then you probably just have bad taste.

I don't see the correlation between the two.

Yea, because they're on an indie label that can't necessarily support the huge tours they do. Plus, albums aren't selling truckloads any more. You have to do what you can to get by. There's no selling out anymore.

Yep. I don't like Weezer, bad taste. Don't take it to heart if someone doesn't like your beloved band.

Oh I don't mind that you don't like them. But when you say you think a State Farm jingle is their best work, you clearly haven't listened to their music.
