We’ve discussed the rise of the niche nerd market before, and few bands have made more hay out of it than Weezer.

Having risen in the culturally fraught 1990s, their secret to longevity has been the ability to cross over between hipsters and actual social outcasts. Oh, and writing really catchy songs. This one is noteworthy in that its chorus has one actual word and a bunch of “whoa”s. Artists like Sheryl Crow have had success with the approach of putting the lyrical meat in the verses and letting the choruses be essentially brainless, for which this is a good example.
