Say it Ain't So!!
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo ditched his Buddy Holly band, teamed up with musician Scott Murphy, and now they're singing in Japanese!!
It probably sounds like we're hitting the Hash Pipe extra hard, but it's TRUE — the Harvard graduate swapped his Island in the Sun for the Land of the Rising Sun!
Getchoo some Scott & Rivers singing Homely Girl (above)!!
Call us crazy, but the music these American icons made Across the Sea is actually kind of rad!!
Even better, you don't have to take a Holiday to Japan to hear Rivers get back to his Pinkerton & Blue Album glory days!!
Scott & Rivers J-Pop debut was released stateside on Monday — get it on iTunes now!!
Summer hasn't even begun yet but the countdown for the biggest music festival of the fall has. The line-up for Austin City Limits 2012 has been announced and with over 100 acts, it is HUGE!
Artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, and Weezer are headlining the festival while soon-to-be headliners like M83, Gotye and Childish Gambino are hitting the stage too.
The next round of tickets go on sale TODAY if you're on the organizers email list, otherwise you'll have to wait until Wednesday to see if any passes are left!
Still debating whether or not to make the $200 investment for three incredible days of music and madness??? See if the massive line-up tickles your fancy … AFTER THE JUMP!

This is chilling!
As we told you earlier, the former bassist for rock band Weezer, Mikey Welsh, was found dead in his hotel room this past weekend.
The cause of death appears to be overdose. So sad. He's been in our thoughts since we heard the news.
But what's crazy weird is that he actually predicted his own death in a dream weeks before!!!
Two weeks ago, Mikey tweeted:
This is giving us chills!
You're SOO good, Dan Talevski!
We've probably played Pumped Up Kicks about 1,468 times now, so hearing a new spin on it is quite refreshing!
Are you listening, Foster the People?? Weezer isn't the only one covering you!
Looks like someone decided to return the favor! How nice!
After Weezer covered Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicked at an Orange County show earlier in the month, the latter band in turn performed a frankly FANTASTIC version of the former's classic track, Say It Ain't So, at the 2011 Outside Lands Festival!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
So RAD! And again - such an awesome gesture, on both of their parts!
What do U think?? U feeling Foster the People's tribute to Weezer?
Looks like everyone is just as crazy about Foster The People as we are!
For their first time ever, Weezer decided to surprise the crowd at Orange County's Pacific Amphitheatre by playing their cover of Pumped Up Kicks!
Just like the original, it's a-mazing!!!
Check it out (above) and see for URself!
