Welcome to Post-Pinkerton, a podcast about Weezer, hosted by John Carroll

Aug 7, 2019

Ep. 78. "Freak Me Out" is one of the rare Weezer songs for which we have no alternate versions. There's no demos, no live performances, nothing but the album track. John explains why, and examines what makes this one of the most unique songs in Weezer's entire catalog.
