** The "oh OH!" chorus of "Perfect Situation."



** A lot of The Red Abum can be described this way. See "Troublemaker," "Everybody Get Dangerous," and "Cold Dark World."



** Pat also wrote the Raditude track "In The Mall," though Rivers sings it.



** "Do You Wanna Get High?" also seems to imply this.



* EarnYourHappyEnding: ''Everything Will Be Alright in the End'' has been met with near-unanimous love from the fanbase- their first album in over ''fifteen years'' to not cause some kind of BrokenBase.

** This was intentionally utilized on The White Album. As Rivers explained on the Song Exploder podcast, producer Jake Sinclair would have the band gather around a microphone to improvise harmonies and banter. This is most noticeable in "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" (Specifically Brian saying "you witch!" and someone imitating a piano after the line "Sweet piano melodies play").

**While occasionally utilized after Pinkerton, as of The White Album, it seems they've fully gone back to this approach (albeit with Scott on falsetto instead of Matt).

** "My Brain Is Working Overtime", which was only performed live during one tour, included the lyric "tell the world to fuck itself" - it's only commercial release was a Rivers Cuomo solo demo that omitted the verse with that lyric entirely. In 2016, the non-album single "I Love The USA" became the first officially released Weezer song where Rivers himself delivered an f-bomb: "I love the USA/ Fuck yeah, this place is great". Even then, they also released a censored version replacing "fuck yeah" with "eff yeah".

** "El Scorcho" is named after Del Scorcho brand sauce, quotes a line from [[Music/PublicEnemy "Don't Believe the Hype"]], name-drops [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestlers]] [[Wrestling/{{TPE}} Johnny Grunge]] and Wrestling/NewJack and references Cio-Cio San, the protagonist of ''MadameButterfly'' from whence the album ''Pinkerton'' derives its concept. There is also a line referencing {{Green Day}}. Apparently the girl that this song was written about had never heard of them. How cool is that?

* AmbiguousDisorder: Rivers Cuomo has never actually stated it, but his mannerisms in interviews are near-identical to those of someone on the spectrum.

**I've Had it Up to Here could also be seen as this. "I tried to give my best to you, but you put up your ears. Now I just can't take no more, I've had it up to here." And, later. "If you think I need approval from a baseless drum, that's where you're wrong."
