Should’ve just wrote a song called Peter $ in order to combine her love of both things. Unrelated note, I’m presently hauling ass to get to MBV earlier now that I realized the opening band is J Mascis doing proto metal with Japanese Psych vibes.

I’m not sure what sucks more, Weezer’s version of “Africa” or “Beverly Hills”. More than happy to see it was passed up in favor the ludicrous nonsense that is “Hash Pipe”. Can’t be worse than Weezer’s cover, anyway.

For someone who claims to not be that into the Beatles, you sure do give a lot of 9s and 10s to songs of theirs that I think are sort of middling.
