A Punk Tribute to Weezer

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Wade Kergan
Embraced by alternative rock radio and cherished by indie rockers, Weezer have never been far removed from the punk gene pool. So the appearance of A Punk Tribute to Weezer isn't as great a stretch as an industrial tribute or a "Pickin' On Weezer" album both of which are surely in the works in these tribute-crazed times. A largely West Coast 1980s punk crowd has shown up for this tribute, including the Angry Samoans with "Buddy Holly," which stays true to the original with only a snarly vocal and rougher production separating the two. Many of the bands tend to end up with the same pop-punk output, with highlights being the Vibrators with "Photograph" and an Urge Overkill ...

Many of the bands tend to end up with the same pop-punk output, with highlights being the Vibrators with "Photograph" and an Urge Overkill meets BTO rendition of "Dope Nose" from unknowns the Targets. A few songs defy the pop-punk formula, although neither Dr. Know's homeless beachfront psychopath take on "Undone The Sweater Song" or Flipper's sludge-punk "Hash Pipe" successfully retools the originals. Like so many tributes, A Punk Tribute to Weezer is a mixed bag that will appeal to aging punk fans and Weezer fanatics.

    This is pretty much the worst cd ever made

    I'm a huge Weezer fan, and I love everything that they do. However, these are probably the worst covers I have ever heard. This was probably the first time that i wanted to turn off a Weezer song. This doesn't do justice to Weezer at all, so if you want to listen to quality Weezer, buy their cd's, not a terrible tribute album.

    Nice

    really enjoyed these bands do their takes on some great weezer songs. one of the better tributes out there. Some hi-lighted tracks are: Angry Samoans, Monkey Pirates, Latter Day Saints, Favorite Atomic Hero and Dr. Know (for laughs). This is a little tough to find, but worth it.
