Weezer Misleads Fans, Sells Out To Hurley International, & Has A Clothing Line On The Way

image from www.newrockstarphilosophy.com Ever wonder why Weezer called their latest album "Hurley" and slapped the face of some random character from the TV show Lost on the cover? A big inside joke or something–right? A calculated viral strategy… The only way they could top their stunt of releasing their own line of SnuggiesActually, it's none of it, none of the above.

According to Voyno at The New Rockstar Philosophy and a subsequent video that was released, the reason that the album is called "Hurley" has absolutely nothing to do with the show Lost or some kind of prank at all and everything to with the fact that the Surf Company Hurley that partially funded the production of their latest album. Say what?!?!?!

Dfdsfsd Not only that, but the band has a line of clothing that's being released in malls across the country later this year. Very punk rock of them.  Don't believe me?

  1. it’s even more “punk” of them to do these things, get yr shit together man… did you even watch the video you posted, brian mentions “post-modern” (he THINKS…) It’s 2010 in case you forgot…
    Remember that dude named Warhol? Not making a comparison between Warhols genius and Cuomos lack of better ideas for artistic direction, but get real bro… i think it’s great…
    …but i’m sure the records going to suck anyway…

  2. How is this different from unsigned artists accepting donations from fans in exchange for singing at their wedding in order to help fund their album?

  3. Less than a month to record the record? You’ve never seen Lost but you put the guy on the cover? The Hurley deal?
    Change the name of the band to Loser.
    17 years on a couple of stupid one off hits. Thanks Interscope.

  4. Wow way to write an opinion piece without any investigative journalism in support. You are losing credibility.

  5. Angel, did you look at the interview? You have no cred…
    (BTW Angel, did you see their lie, I mean response today?)

  6. ???? since when was weezer punk??? they have ALWAYS been commercial- major labels, mtv, they have been commercially accessible from the start – get over yourselves u elitest fucks- perhaps they are doing it for their retirement funds lol
