Weezer eat Pork And Beans

On April Fools Day 2k8, it was announced that Weezer's sixth album would boar a familiar title: Weezer. In keeping tradition with Weezer albums of self-titled past, this one would be known to the world as the Red Album for the color scheme the album's art work would utilize. At first, I was thinking it was just a silly April Fools joke, especially when it was mentioned that the first single would be called "Pork And Beans," but then Karl Koch of Karl's Corner at Weezer's official site confirmed all this was indeed true. I was baffled, wanting to denounce my allegiance to Rivers Cuomo and his band that I've had for many years.

But then, this past weekend, a 30 second clip for "Pork And Beans" was made available to check out on Amazon as a precursor to the release of said single next week. And I hate to admit it, but, it's good. It sounds pretty good. Like old Weezer good. Maybe all that chatter Rivers had mention of everyone taking turns singing and hip-hop verses and swing music or whatever was all a lie. I guess that will all be answered in time.

Weezer drops June 17th. Get your first, uh, taste of "Pork And Beans" here.
