Weezer‘s been up & down over the years, but has managed to still have a wide and eager fan base, from folks who were old when Weezer (The Blue Album) (QRO live review) came out to kids who think Rivers Cuomo wrote “Africa”. That span comes to the fore in their video for new single “Hero”, from the upcoming metal-inspired Van Weezer, with a crowd-sourced lockdown video passing Cuomo’s letter of tribute to the real heroes across the world (time was even left at the end to read the letter).
Oh, and the band will be on this Sunday’s The Simpsons, playing Homer & Marge’s romantic cruise (obviously written before all the corona cruise nightmares…)!
