The Weezer frontman covers “Trap Queen” for some awful reason. More »
Who better than to close out the final day of Reading Festival 2010—pop’s oldest music fest—than mega bands Paramore, Weezer and Blink-182?

When Matt Sharp started his cutesy little Weezer side project (ahem, excuse me: musical collective), The Rentals, back in 1994, I thought, “That’s nice. They’ve given the bassist his own little band to play with.” I said that in a baby talk voice. Now I look back fondly on the reliable pop charms of the Rentals, having watched Rivers Cuomo spend the last decade dismantling any goodwill I ever felt for Weezer. Did y’all listen to “Heart Songs”? That song alone has made me question why I ever liked that band.
