Win Free Weezer Tickets!

I suppose it's debatable, but Pinkerton is actually one of the best albums ever. Like all kinds of music or books or visual arts, you have to encounter an album or song or band at a certain time in your life for it to really hit heavy. Like if you read Catcher in the Rye for the first time at 50, you may not give a good goddamn about Holden's obsession with phonies. But if you read it at 12, JD Salinger just explained the universe in one novel. Pinkerton is definitely one of those oeuvres. But if you got in on that angsty shit when times were tough and you were just old enough, you feel the fuck out of this album forever.

Next week, Weezer will be heading to Hard Rock Live again to perform probably some classics off this finest release, but also some of the stuff everyone complains about. The good news is that we have two pairs of tickets to give away, and it'll be easy for you get 'em.
