Like many 20-somethings who grew up in the era when “Buddy Holly” was a staple on MTVs music video lineup, I’ve always enjoyed the occasional Weezer song. But it wasn’t until recently when I
almost single-handedly killed a party by blasting “The Sweater Song” at a

allegiance to the band in writing. As a devoted fan of the Los
Angeles-based nerd rock pioneers, I often get irritated by the s*** talk
that seems to accompany every record the group has released since the Green Album hit shelves back in 2000.The bottom line is that Weezer is alive and well, and while the

Nine is a great number: Revolution 9, #9 Dream, Love Potion Number Nine, John Lennon and Johnny Depp born on 9, but most of all Andy Carroll is number 9!
