Go Away

Album: Everything Will Be Alright in the End (2014)
  • Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo wrote this song with Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino in 2010. She also duets with him on the track. "He's such an awesome guy and he definitely made me feel confident and comfortable in the studio," Cuomo told Flavorwire. "It was one of those experiences where I couldn't believe I was actually sitting in the same room, writing a song with the dude who wrote 'Buddy Holly.'"

    Best Coast opened two L.A. Shows during Weezer's late 2010 Memories tour.
  • The song was included on Weezer's 2014 Everything Will Be Alright album. "Well - I co-wrote and am featured on a song on the new Weezer album," Cosentino wrote on Instagram when the tracklisting was announced. "So basically, all my teenage dreams have officially come true."
  • The video finds Rivers Cuomo attempting to woo Bethany Cosentino via a "Winder" dating app. He tries various looks, including bleach blond surfer dude, record store geek and corporate suit, but his e-love swipes left every time. However, the Weezer frontman eventually find a way to ensure that he meets his online love interest.
