Weezer songs seem to quote other Weezer songs pretty frequently.  For example, Tragic Girl references Butterfly, and Longtime Sunshine references Why Bother?  What's your favorite Weezer self-reference?

I knew I had heard "Across the Sea" somewhere else.  Couldn't remember where though. Thanks.

Rivers' Walt Disney has the lyrics 'across the sea'.
I totally disagree.  Please get yourself a dictionary.  What's the point of splitting semantic hairs anyway?  The only one who knows Rivers' intent is Rivers.  The rest of us are just theorists.  Your theories are no more valid than mine.

Mo beats 'Keep Fishin Still seems small" is the only example of this. The rest are just similar, or the same words in multiple songs. That doesn't mean its a reference. I think you lack the correct definition of reference in your vocab.

This thread is still around?

lol

I thought it was because you guys are message board trolls who say rude, useless crap on internet message boards all day.

On second thought, don't go buy a dictionary.  I wouldn't want your one source of pride in this world to disappear.  Go ahead and hold onto that.  Make sure you put it on your gravestone.  

please explain how the song the song "troublemaker" references the song "slob."
