Tied To The 90′s: Weezer & Everclear Still (Somewhat) Newsworthy

weezer pic.jpgBad news for prostitutes and all those half-Japanese girls out there: Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo is now a married man.

Rivers married girlfriend Kyoko Ito over the weekend in Malibu. According to their official website, a mini-reunion took place with past and present members of the band (except for that Mikey guy from the Green Album who disappeared after going crazy or something.) I’m not sure what they chose for a wedding song, but I’m hoping it was “El Scorcho.”

In other Bands I Used To Like But Now I’m Kind Of Embarrassed By news, Everclear is shooting for relevancy by dedicating their new song “Hater” to “Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and all others who hate in the name of Jesus.” They even created a MySpace profile for the video’s main character. You can watch “Hater” here (totally NSFW, by the way) Interesting idea. I wonder why they never made a page for their Volvo Driving Soccer Mom.

Of course, all this Weezer and Everclear news leads me to one very important question: what the hell is Collective Soul up to?
