Was it because the album's sales were so poor that there was no point?

Or because Weezer are just really s*** at promoting?

to be fair, Hurley has a sticker on the album cover that says "includes the hit singles memories, ruling me, hang on, smart girls, time flies, ..." and proceeds to list almost every song on the album. ...what?
O, yes. Hang on actually was a single. 
Yeah, I was like "lolwut" when I bought that CD. Shame, because I think Hurley's a solid album, they're doing a god awful job at promoting it.

Honestly, because of the production and sound quality of the album, I couldn't see any singles from the album doing well anyway.  None of the songs would be successful on the radio.
Good album but some songs are way-overproduced with angel-like backin vocals (I think in trainwrecks).. hate that s***
I hate the quality of time flies.  It's like purposely exported it at 96 kbs

to be fair, they suck at promoting.

 

hits they missed out on: Can't Stop Partying, Trippin Down The Freeway, Let It All Hang Out, Put Me Back Together, Hang On, Ruling Me

 

Raditude really could've put them back on the map, given how ridiculously 'mainstream pop' the songs are.

Raditude was meant to bomb because Weezer sounds terrible attempting mainstream pop.

I forgot to answer the original question.

 

It's because Hurley sucks

I think Raditude and Hurley were waaaay too rushed. I think they should have combined both albums and cut the filler songs out. Fusing the good songs of both albums would have made a pretty darn good Weezer album. 

That's what I loved about it, and that's the point. That's what they were going for.
