Eulogy For A Rock Band

Album: Everything Will Be Alright in the End (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • 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."
