George Lopez At Least Partially Responsible For Weezer's 'Hurley' Cover

People have been searching for who to blame for Weezer's horrible Hurley cover, and we very well might have a winner: comedian/marginal talk show host George Lopez. See, Lopez had Jorge Garcia and Weezer on as guests a little while back, and the photo that was taken for the cover was taken backstage at Lopez's show. Here's what Hurley had to say:

"I went to do the George Lopez show ['Lopez Tonight'], and I think they were doing two or three shows that night, and [Weezer frontman] Rivers [Cuomo] was a guest in the previous show. So they came and knocked on my door and said, 'Hi,' and wanted to get a picture with me, and I thought that was awesome. We chatted briefly, and that was it," he said. "And I didn't hear until a couple months later that they wanted to put me on the cover ... I didn't realize it was just going to be that same picture we took together, cropped down to my face. When I look at the picture, I notice that there's something going on with my hair, like it's starting to come loose or something. But I'm happy with it."

I think I'd more concerned with being the face of an album that is probably going to be the worst. But whatevez. But best part:

Garcia, who cites Bon Iver, M. Ward and the New Pornographers as some of his favorite acts, said he's always been a casual fan of Weezer ("I don't recognize Maladroit so much," he laughed).


Nice. No one recognizes Maladroit. Though I'm hoping he meant that he only likes Weezer's old stuff. Wait, maybe not. Maybe he only likes "Beverly Hills," in which case, boo Hurley. [MTV]

wow! you're cool! you only like weezer's old stuff! what revolutionary thinking! .... seriously get off their case, stop trying to sh!t on everything they do just because pinkerton was their best album. its pretty clear that weezer isnt gonna put out the same album twice, so give it a rest with all the whining. and there is NOTHING wrong with Beverly hills, if it wasnt for that song i wouldnt be the fan of this wonderful band that i am today.

OH, and plenty of people recognize Maladroit (probably my second fave of theirs) , not just evidenced by being voted onto Rolling Stone Readers Top 100 Albums the exact year it came out, but also by its critical acclaim seen on metacritic. can we get a real Weezer fan to bring us this news instead of some snobbish A-hole?


damn Jake. i never knew it was so hard to be a post-90's weezer superfan. thanks for sharing your pain bro. hopefully they'll stop making sucky albums someday so you can wipe it in the internet's face. although, as a side-note, a 72 score at the ol' metacrit can hardly be considered "critical acclaim" for maladroit. more like a general consensus of "are these guys still together?". i barfed two songs into the green album, so i can only imagine what any of their later albums would do to my digestive process. also, Rolling Stone's dead finger slid off the pulse of new music about three decades ago, so using one of their reader polls as a barometer for quality music is like asking a fifty year old father of two where the party's at. which is fine if you're into texas hold'em and fantasy football and coors light and dads. just don't expect to hear any good tunes or meet any chicks while you're there. what was i saying? oh yeah. weezer sucks.


hahahhahaha well maybe critical acclaim was the wrong term to use, and yes, rolling stone is pretty bogus now, but keep in mind that that was a reader voted on list. people love Maladroit, at least most the ones who have listened to it. i think it has the most impressive guitar work of all of them, i hope youll get to hear it one day.
and unless you have some stomach issues im not aware of, i cant see what made you toss your cookies during green..... did the same happen when you heard the guitar solo to No One Else? or were you mad that rivers wasnt pouring out his soul in the lyrics, after his fans completely rejected Pinkerton?
