This Everything Will Be Alright In The End track is about Weezer's musical forefathers. It falls in line with one of the themes of the album - father figures. Frontman Rivers Cuomo told NME: "My father was in the army, stationed in Germany when I was growing up, so I didn't see him much. That gave me a lot to write about, and I explored the father-figure theme in other ways too."
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
