1) That article calls Weezer pop punk...when the fuck did that happen?

2) Why does Weezer keep on doing piss poor covers of bands I immensely respect?

No, that was pop punk in 94. Maybe not what you would call it now, but thats what it was then.

i dunno, i suppose if you think so, i can't argue that with you, but to me, I've never once thought of Weezer as a pop punk band

if you're trying to make a case of who's older you should probably take that x out of your user name

You mean the username I set up in 03? When I was just a young man of 19?

I was asking about the age because, like me, you were barely cognizant of the world when that album came out. While pop punk changed into what is considered the definition of it now, at that time, it was a totally different world.

i dunno, i don't think that has anything to do with it. and even if you want to think in terms of the era, there's just a big difference between albums like dookie, dear you, let's go and the blue album or even more so pinkerton.

Dookie and Lets go werent considered pop punk at that time. They were just considered punk rock albums. Same with Smash.
