Song Of The Week: “Ain’t Got Nobody” by Weezer

WEEZER-2014

With the release of one of their best albums in years, Weezer is determined to make the most out of their new golden ticket. Everything Will Be Alright In The End is the bands ninth studio album and easily one of their best in recent memory. Almost every track is a breath of fresh air and you can tell that the band has gotten over their experimental phase (Raditude boo). Going back to the basics with producer Ric Ocasek, Weezer is back and in fine form with their newest track “Ain’t Got Nobody”.

The leading track from their newest album, “Ain’t Got Nobody” is a brilliant fast-paced, rock n’ roll thrill ride that starts the album with an explosion of energy. The three minute and twenty one second song is the perfect interlude into the album. Starting off with the distorted crackle of an old tape cassette along with a few lines of dialogue that create an air of mystery, the track is ready to roll. With a heavy continuous riff that breaks right into the catchy chorus of “Ain’t got nobody, Ain’t got nobody, Ain’t got no one to really love me”.

As the main chorus that gets caught in your head the track is an instant Weezer classic. While it sounds upbeat the lyrical content is fairly moody and depressing. However, just like a any good Weezer track it still sounds like a fantastic pop punk song with one of the more memorable choruses on the whole entire album. One of the best parts of the song is the last minute or so when the band breaks it down with a flurry of guitars and drums. “Ain’t got Nobody” is one of the best tracks on the album and is a shoo in for their next hit single.
