Weezer Breaks World Records With Video Premier

You've got to love this band's creativity, innovation and just plain kick-assedness.  And now, we bring you Weezer's - Troublemaker...

 I'm gonna be a star
And people
Will crane necks
To get a glimpse of me
And see
If I am having a sex
In studying
And my moves
They try
To understand
Why I am so unlike
The singers
In the other bands

 Indeed you are Rivers Cuomo, indeed you are.  Once again, bravo.
