Check out this pretty awesome new Weezer single, "Like a Good Neighbor (State Farm is There)." Yep, Weezer's follow-up to last year's Hurley sounds like a little like vintage "Blue Album" or Pinkerton-era Rivers Cuomo songwriting, complete with those self-deprecating, mournful sounding vocals set to a catchy pop-rock rhythm.

 

Now, folks ranging from YouTube users to Consequence of Sound readers to New York Magazine writers are praising the band for tapping into its musical roots to create the sort of material that made Weezer famous. But, they're also criticizing the band for wasting what they consider to be the best Weezer song in over decade on a commercial for car insurance. Rivers, you just can't win with these critics, not that you've ever tried to before. [CoS]

I think Weezer have been playing us for fools this last decade. This was their plan all along.

Independent now... and in one song, they probably paid for any left over expenses and the cost for anything they want to do now. Wouldn't you? Not to mention proving there are a ton of ways to make money with your music if you would just get the "industry" out of the way first. Brilliant if you ask me!

As for "wasting" it on State Farm, you never half-ass your talent under any circumstances. Once they committed to doing the commercial, I'd expect nothing less!

And you know what else?! I was considering getting some quotes since my rates went up so high after my son's birthday. I think I'll start with State Farm.
