All My Friends Are Insects

Songfacts®:

  • Weezer first premiered this song on an episode of the popular children's TV show Yo Gabba Gabbba! called "Bugs" on March 9, 2010. Aside from appearing on the deluxe edition of Weezer's 2010 album Hurley, this song appears on the compilation album Yo Gabba Gabba! - Music is... Awesome Volume 2. The disc also featured other band's that have been on the hit kids show, including Jimmy Eat World, Hot Hot Heat, and The Ting Tings.
  • One interesting thing about this song is that it wasn't written by a member of Weezer. Adam Deibert, a former member of the bands Bikeride and The Aquabats, wrote the tune. Deibert works as a composer for the children's TV show Yo Gabba Gabba! and often appears on screen in costume as one of the show's characters.
  • Weezer is based in Beverly Hills, California, and the band often records in Van Nuys, but the string tracks on this song were actually done at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, Canada. Other songs on Hurley that feature strings recorded in Banff include first single "Memories," "Unspoken," and "Represent."
