    Timeless…. just simply timeless.

  15. Zen Master says:

    Even at 25 years old (this is now older than I was when I first heard it at 22) I find this one of the most emotion-evoking songs to date. It fills me with a tremendous sense of… something. Loss. Gain. Fear. Joy. So much of that something came from this first album and it remains one of the best premieres for a band, yet this track is paramount.

  16. Julia D says:

    This and Father of Mine by Everclear are the two best songs about father issues ever

    This song is a cathartic one for Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, who takes out his family frustrations in the lyric. He wrote the music for the song and had the title, but didn't know what the song would be about until he remembered an incident when he came home from high school and found a bottle of beer in the refrigerator belonging to his stepfather ("Somebody's Heine' is crowdin' my icebox").

    Cuomo's family had been hurt by alcohol abuse in the past, as his father was an alcoholic and left the family when Rivers was four. When Cuomo saw the beer in the fridge, he thought his stepfather was also going to end up leaving.

    The video was shot at the garage in the Los Angeles where Cuomo and Weezer bass player Matt Sharp lived. It was directed by Sophie Muller, whose extensive credits include most of the Eurythmics and Annie Lennox videos, and several by No Doubt.

    Rivers Cuomo takes a shot at his biological father, Frank, in this song in the verse he starts with "Dear Daddy." After leaving the family when Cuomo was four, Rivers saw Frank infrequently until around the time when this song was released, at which point they renewed their relationship.

    When Cuomo sings, "You've cleaned up, found Jesus," he's referring to his dad's religious epiphany: Frank became a Pentecostal preacher. Years later, Rivers enjoyed watching videos of his father's sermons, which often incorporated music (Frank was a professional drummer). This helped Rivers come to terms with his insecurities on stage – he never looked like a rock star and sometimes felt like he didn't belong on stage, but seeing his father do it helped Rivers realize that he had a genetic gift for performing.

    Looking back at the lashing he gave his dad, Cuomo told Rolling Stone in 2014, "I was an angry young man. I was quick to point the finger."

    The line, "Flip on the tele', wrestle with Jimmy" is a reference to Cuomo's brother, Jimmy. The other name mentioned in the song is "Stephen" ("This bottle of Stephen's"), which refers to their stepfather, Stephen Kitts.

    Bass player Matt Sharp sang the falsetto vocals on The Blue Album, which is probably most easily recognizable on this song. These were, oddly enough, the first notes Sharp sang in front of anyone.

    So that’s the meaning and facts about this song

  22. David Gonzales says:

    still wrestling with jimmy

  23. Sandra Bullock doesn’t exist says:

    All these years I thought one guitar was the DUN DUN and the other was the WOWOW and I’m only now finding out they’re one in the same

  24. 99loj says:

    This song is so soulful and so rock n roll at the same time😎✌

  25. Enrique Rivas says:

    I came here to reminisce about the past this song always takes me there. And also to Wrestle Jimmy 😂.

  26. andrea g.s. says:

    Some people keep commenting about how the music video kind of resembles or reminds them of 80s DnD parties, which leads to Stranger Things references.
    So, here's a fun fact: Finn Wolfhard, one of the stars of Stranger Things (plays Mike Wheeler), actually has a band (Calpurnia) which covered this song on a Spotify Sessions!
    Youtube link is here if you wanna listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlFKNFA0yk4

    (dont worry, issa real link, i just thought if anyone wanted a quicker way to get to it than looking it up)

  27. Loris Perron says:

    So Steve from Blues Clues went to college, was able to get into Harvard, get his degree in English and form a band?

    (btw I'm continuing a comment from j p.

  28. Robert Petit says:

    Suzanne, pourquoi t'appelles tu Suzanne? Y'as tu quelque chose qu'on peut faire pour que tu arrêtes de t'appeler Suz-anne? Suzanne, pourquoi pas Janine, hein Suzanne? Ne vois tu pas à quel point tu blesses nos coeurs Suz-anne?
    Roaring tiger radio: We also throw at you some incomplete crappy songs from unknown writer!

  29. Doug Smith says:

    Just had a "Eureka Moment" – if The Modern Lovers were teleported in history from 1971 (when their 1st album was recorded) to the early 90s and, recorded it when Weezer released this LP…it would've sounded exactly like "Say It Ain't So"

    Rivers could very well be Johnathan Richman lyrically, visually, song subject matter, outsider, nerd…and, visaversa…listen to Girlfren, Hospital, She Cracked, Astral Plane, Government Centre and, Modern World…I kid you not

  70. Maraki Asrat says:

    You know what Matt did wrong in this video.

    Strummed over the whole thing when in the song there's clearly no Bass-strumming.
    Sometimes he barely touches the strings.
    But worst of all, NOT MOVING HIS FINGERS DAMMIT!

  71. Affordable Boxing Products says:

    It's all about 2:46

  80. Ken Fresno says:

    This band was special when Rivers was an awkward dweeb. The second he realized people thought he was cool it was over. Same thing that happened with Stephen Malkmus/Pavement. Both climbed inside their own asses and set up camp.

  81. Jeff Yip says:

    Looking for Definition Gold and Formulas; Eating for Flavors
    Hey, are you that guy hanging around and chewing devil grass, waiting for Walter? (Dark Tower Series) CSL. Or, maybe you're the gun enthusiast who never heard of Eli Whitney? Either way, this Astra Modelo keeps jamming and it has my Spanish identity in it. It's the definitive Spanish piece…
    "Now, you mean something by that fried chicken and paper plate, buddy, besides meal. That's why they call fat people cowards."
    We don't eat for flavors, sure, we eat for definitions and expressions. Hilarious to watch, like fencing; the definitive social! The rich are a lot of gun engravings which are complex engineering bombs or intimidation expressions. This is why bloodlines and heritage are so valued. If you have too many of them your shot for expressions, you have no historical identity. (Spanish/ German-Swiss).
