I doubt weezer will ever be perfect but this song is just insultingly bad. I just don't see how these lyrics and gah could come from the same band. It is not even tongue and cheek or cheese like some of the bad weezer stuff. This is litterally a Katy Perry meets Eminem shitstorm of what from a band that used to write awesome punk rock.
I sorta get the feeling that a tongue-in-cheek satire of pop radio California songs is what they wanted
to go for here but the result is just too earnest-sounding for satire. I dunno. Sure they've always had goofy, novelty tracks like Hit That or Pretty Fly but neither of those was even near as bad as this. Sounds like the band is having a major identity crisis or something.
