Sunday Song Lyric:
Weezer is a quirky band from L.A. with a devoted following. One VC reader wrote to recommend their latest single, "Pork and Beans," for today's song lyric. The Wikipedia page on the song has an interesting tidbit about its inspiration:
This was written by [lead singer Rivers] Cuomo as a reaction to a meeting with Geffen where the band was told it needed to record more-commercial material. Cuomo remarked, "I came out of it pretty angry. But ironically, it inspired me to write another song."
The YouTube-inspired video is available on YouTube (where else) here. The lyrics begin:
They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
Work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades that transform a tool
You’d hate for the kids to think that you lost your cool

I’mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
I’m finally dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think
