With Weezer’s The Blue Album celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it’s no surprise that those who grew up with the band might get a little nostalgic about their collective youth. Comedian Hari Kondabolu’s “Weezer Broke My Heart,” taken from Waiting for 2042 (due March 11 via Kill Rock Stars), is a witty glimpse into the minds of steadfast fans who forgive the band’s lesser albums in loyalty to their most triumphant ones. Describing himself as “the creepy old dude at the Weezer concert at 28 [years-old],” Kondabolu reflects on the days where illegally downloading music meant giving up entire weekends, the strangely unchanging, uniform demographic of Weezer fans over the years, and being delegated to the parents’ section. (Weezer, by the way, just spent the past weekend on their annual, self-curated holiday-cruise through the Bahamas.)
