Band Props #1: Weezer
Today's band props go to Weezer. Basically band props means that I love this band, though it's not all gonna be sunshine and rainbows. Weezer's been around for a little while, from their Blue Album in '94, to their brand new album titled Raditude. More on Raditude later. Weezer has a unique alternative/punk rock feel, although their music is constantly changing. They have had many major smash hits, from Hash Pipe, to Beverly Hills, to Island in the Sun, to Pork & Beans, to their brand new single (If You Are Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To. Weezer's style of music focuses on their lead singer, Rivers Cuomo, but that in essence is also their downfall. No matter how hard they try to rock, their lack of focus on their guitar player often leaves the band as a whole sounding rather poppy.
