Rivers Cuomo loves soccer. How much? So much that he’ll be spending a lot of Bonnaro (they’re headlining tomorrow night) watching the highly anticipated match between the U.S. and England. As he told MLS:
They are actually playing the game on a big screen at the festival. So if you can believe it, I’ll be sitting in front of that big screen with all the other concert-goers watching the game. As soon as we realized we were going to confirm that show, we asked the promoter if they were going to be showing the game. They’re actually making a big deal out of it.
“Represent” is Weezer’s unofficial tribute to the U.S. Men’s National Team, who will make the quarterfinals, if Cuomo’s predictions are accurate. The band released it online via Radio Weezer last night, and it’s got inspiring lines like “It matter how you play the game” and “It matters that you can take the pain” over laser synths. Get pumped:
