Smash Mouth’s destruction of the Monkees’ “I’m a Believer” for the first Shrek was one of the worst crimes against humanity perpetrated in the last decade. I hear the Hague is working on a trial. So the bar for making a song for Shrek Forever: Who Even Gives A Shit Anymore? isn’t exactly high.
Weezer’s bar has been basement low for some time now, so the news that they’re “weezifying a cover” for Shrek Forever isn’t exactly the most promising story you’ll read all day. In fact, it’s probably not promising at all; it will almost certainly be the worst. [Stereogum]
