Actually the phrase is, "If it's too loud, you're too old."
The phrase was "If it's too loud, turn it up", but in typical Weezer humor in the 90's they changed it to "If it's too loud, turn it down".
So when/ why was it changed to "If it's too loud turn it down" ? I like stories
I have a Weezer t-shirt from the 90s that says If it's too loud turn it down. It's a real thing. Why they did it, who knows. It's a t-shirt. Probably don't think about it too much.
yes i think we've established that weezer has used this phrase on their merchandise.
