They look like the Village People.

I think this is the third version I've seen of the cover.

I'm sure I'll end up buying the deluxe edition, I'm a sucker for extra songs.

I find myself enjoying this song even more than before, despite the lyrics.

Just one of those fun songs where the music and production is great, and you can't help but sing along.

Ok , this might be old news but I thought it was too cool not to post....

The DJ at my local college radio station just relayed the story...

Apparently when Weezer showed the new album to the executives at Geffen, they said "We don't hear a single on this album...how are we going to sell this thing?"

Rivers got really pissed off and offended threw a fit. He went back and grabbed his acoustic and wrote Pork and Beans and came back and said "here's your single"

I think that is awesome and it totally enhances my enjoyment of the song. Listen to Pork and Beans again with that story in mind and I think you will see what I mean.

Way to go Rivers!!!

Is this supposed to make me like or respect Rivers more? For kowtowing to record execs?

If he had any real integrity he would have told them to fuck off, straight up.

yeah, but they're still record execs.

If he made a single for them, but takes shots at them in the lyrics, that earns him some points.

If true, this story makes me really want to hear the rest of the album . . .

Interesting if true, as it does kinda make some sense about why the song's lyrics are so ridiculous. (IE, a complete mockery of Pinkerton era Weezer)

The way I look at it, Rivers did say "fuck you" to the execs by writing the song. Anyway, it makes me like the song Pork and Beans more and, yes, it even makes me like Rivers more.

Also, our friends over at stereogum have discovered 3 or 4 more songs off the new "Red" album if anyone's interested....

I don't understand how doing what the suits tell you to, even if it's in a defiant manner, is more admirable than just walking away.

It's totally a Rivers-type move though.

Can't say I'm impressed.

Well, it's an absolutely miserable song lyrically, and an abortion of an attempt to sound like the whole "this is who I am" feel of Pinkerton. So to some degree it's like he's giving them what they want, but it's the worst possible version of what they think they want I suppose. Kind of a "You want some stupid catchy pop single to throw on the radio? Here you go." I dont know, I get what you're saying, but I get what GAF and coemgen are saying as well.
