Steph:  Hey, Derek, did you hear, uh, Weezer came out with a new album?

Derek:  Yes, I did hear that. Now they’re the ones that sing the sweater song, aren’t they?

Steph:  Yeah. Isn’t that a cute song?

Derek:  I think it’s a pretty catchy little tune.

Steph:  Totally catchy. Yeah. I think this is like their 7th or 8th album.

Derek:  Really?

Steph:  Yeah. It’s really cool. It just hit the shelves today.

Derek:  Well, that sounds pretty cool. Have you heard anything from it?

Steph:  Ya know, I’ve heard a little bit. Um, from what I heard, it’s pretty sophisticated. And, ya know, they’ve been around for a while so. Ya know, they’re in their 30s and they’ve been making music since they were like 20.

Derek:  Ah, so it’s time to grow up is it?

Steph:  Yeah. Kind of. I guess it’s that way for everyone, right?

Derek:  I guess so.

Here in Portland, we like Weezer . They have some ties to Portland and we really support bands that are from our area.
But it’s not just Portlanders who like the band. They are popular around the country and they play a lot out of the country too. They have really catchy lyrics and are very talented musically.
Have you ever heard Weezer? Do you like their music? Have you ever read their lyrics? What do you think of them?
