The Village Weez

Today, Spinner.com released the album cover for Weezer’s upcoming sixth album.  If this cover alone doesn’t make album six (a.k.a. The Red Album) go platinum, there is no justice in the world.

The image alone redefines the concept of album covers as art, and all other musicians just better stop trying.  It’s far better for all future albums, CDs, tapes and eight-tracks to be released in brown paper wrapping than to try and compete with Weezer portraying the Village People.  From left to right, Brian is the starving artist, Pat is the scholar, Rivers is a cowboy and Scott is the biker.  Truly a masterpiece.

I don’t want to go calling this a ‘theme album,’ but from what we know, the look of the band here fits the message of Pork and Beans:

I’mma do the things
That I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing
To prove to you
I’ll eat my candy
With the pork and beans
Excuse my manners
If I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear
The clothes that you like
I’m finally dandy
With the me inside
One look in the mirror
And I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot
About what you think

I didn’t think it was possible to look forward to an album, but I am really stoked for this one.
