Weezer to split

Don’t worry Weezer fans, your fave band aren’t going to hang up their guitars - well that’s unless someone gives them a nice rounded $20 million.

Let's wind back a couple of steps; a campaign called The Point has been set-up by Weezer fan James Burns stating that the band should split because the ‘new’ stuff isn’t as good as the ‘old’ and will offer them $10 million if they do it.

The campaign...

‘Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that he’s changed, and that their new album is the best thing that he’s done since 'Pinkerton', and what happens? Another pile of crap like 'Beverly Hills' or 'I’m Your Daddy'. This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now. I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year. I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos. If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought 'Pinkerton' pitch in $12, we will meet our goal’.

But where it gets really interesting Weezer themselves have now responded and said they will split, but for $20 million. Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson Tweeted; ‘if they can make it $20million, we'll do the 'deluxe break-up'.’

Um, only $19999988 to go then.
