Matt Damon hosted last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live and played a ride-or-die Weezer fan in one of the sketches. It starts with him playing their cover of “Africa” by Toto at a Christmas party. Leslie Jones calls Damon a fake fan for liking Weezer’s new stuff: “I’m just confused because real Weezer fans know that they haven’t had a good album since Pinkerton in 1996.” Damon fires back, “‘Pork And Beans’ is better than ‘Buddy Holly’…No offense, but burn in hell.” It’s pretty funny. For the record, I’m on Leslie’s side. Watch it below.
Weezer should write a song about how SNL hasn’t been good since the first two seasons

UPDATE: Weezer are now selling a t-shirt inspired by the sketch. You can pre-order it here.
Can we all just agree that Weezer is the best band of all time?
