Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Covers The Beach Boys "Don’t Worry Baby"

A fine acapella version of the Brian Wilson classic “Don’t Worry Baby” from Rivers Cuomo – recorded for stereogum.

Very doo-wap!

We love it!

The Weez frontman had earlier recorded a cover of the song which appears on Alone II: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo, from 199.

Weezer – The Red Album (2008)

Weezer – The Red Album (June 3, 2008)

Weezer’s sixth studio album will be released on June 3, 2008, just over three years after their latest release, Make Believe.

Rick Rubin produced the album with Rich Costey

The record is described as “experimental”, and according to Rivers Cuomo, includes longer and non-traditional songs, TR-808 drum machines, synthesizers, Southern rap, baroque counterpoint, and band members other than Cuomo writing, singing, and switching instruments.

Lead singer Rivers Cuomo had released a demo-compilation album entitled Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo on December 18, 2007. The album contains demos of Cuomo’s that span from 1992 to 2007, including songs from Weezer’s abandoned second album, Songs from the Black Hole. Also included in Alone is a song intended for Weezer’s Red Album, entitled “This is the Way“. The booklet of Alone tells of the band wanting the song for the album, but ultimately choosing “an epic, 6-minute, symphonic type of art song” entitled “Daydreamer” instead, which was later retitled as “Dreamin'”.

On March 7, 2008, in the magazine Performing Songwriter, Rivers announced two song titles: “Ms. Sweeney” and “I’m the Greatest Man That Ever Lived”.

A remix of “Automatic,” a song to appear on the sixth album and written and sung by Pat Wilson, is featured on the soundtrack of the video game Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. A portion of the song can be heard in a trailer for the game at GameTrailers.com. Additionally, the song “Everybody Get Dangerous” can be heard in the movie 21. However, it does not appear on the official movie soundtrack.

On March 25, 2008, Pat Wilson appeared on the Macintosh-centric podcast MacBreak Weekly and stated the album cost around a million dollars to make, contrasting it with the $150,000 budget of the Blue Album.

On April 1, 2008, various news outlets reported that the album would once again be self-titled, referring to it as “the Red Album“. Additionally, it was revealed that a number of sessions for the album were produced by Jacknife Lee and that the song “Pork and Beans” would be the first single.

On April 15, 2008 KROQ 106.7 (Los Angeles Radio Station) premiered the single “Pork and Beans.” It is now streaming from Weezer’s official website, and is available to download on the iTunes Music Store. On May 7, 2008, the first 8 tracks off the album were leaked on the fan site http://www.albumsix.com.

On May 13, 2008, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn) was released as a digital single on iTunes. Troublemaker followed on May 20, 2008.

For the chart week of May 31, 2008, “Pork and Beans” is currently sitting at the top of the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks charts for the 3rd week in a row and has become the group’s 3rd Number One single on this chart and also represents their fastest rising single ever having reached #1 in only 3 weeks.

The official music video for “Pork and Beans” debuted on YouTube and features many YouTube stars such as Tay Zonday, Gary Brolsma and All Your Base from Newgrounds, Chris Crocker,Judson Laipply (Evolution of Dance), the Afro Ninja, Miss South Carolina as well as the members of Weezer themselves playing in funtwo’s bedroom all singing the song. Also, there are parodies of various internet memes, such as the Star Wars kid and Ryan Wieber and Michael Scott ‘s Star Wars fan film Ryan vs. Dorkman.
