Weezer Rereleasing Pinkerton


Remember how for awhile after The Green Album everyone thought Rivers Cuomo hated Pinkerton because Weezer never played any of its songs live, even though that's all anyone wanted to hear, and inadvertently created a certain forbidden aura around that album? Looks like Cuomo's cool with it now: The band's planning on releasing an expanded, deluxe edition of Pinkerton independently (they left Geffen late last year). Sweet! Also on deck is a B-sides collection and a new track featured on the Shrek Forever After soundtrack. To get you in the mood, here's "El Scorcho." [Billboard]
