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

May 8, 2019

Ep. 66. Almost exactly 17 years after first recording "Burning Sun," Weezer released "Weekend Woman," a song born from the bones of that Green Album era demo. John discusses what's changed, why he prefers "Weekend Woman" to "Burning Sun," and why you won't find the word "girl" on this track (or any other from Pacific Daydream).
