Auto-Tune the News #13: driving. stripping. swinging. (ft. Weezer)
Will this robotically-enhanced track be a Hot 100 hit like the bros’ “Bed Intruder Song“? It certainly wouldn’t be hard to top Weezer’s current status on the charts—their last entrant into Billboard‘s Hot 100 was 2009′s “(If You’re Wondering) If I Want You To”, which peaked at #81. (“Bed Intruder Song” is still holding in there at #94, FYI.) Plus, “Don’t leave me swinging in the wind” rivals “Umbrella, ella, ella, ay, ay, ay” in terms of instant catchiness.
Weezer’s album Hurley is out today. Buy it for the fantastic cover art alone.
