Weezer: The Ultimate Novelty Band

A few weeks ago, I wrote about novelty music. Mostly, I was thinking about "Weird Al" Yankovic and the Chicago Bears' "Super Bowl Shuffle." I wasn't, however, thinking about Weezer. But I should have been; Weezer, it seems, is the ultimate novelty band.

I don't know if Weezer hates its fans or just the (apparently) stifling concept of sincerity, but you should listen to these two new songs if you weren't already convinced of Weezer's contempt for music.

A new song, "I'm Your Daddy."

Another new song, "The Girl Got Hot."
