Keep Your Own Damn Fingernails Clean

This is a very good piece on the creepiness of Weezer.  There’s nothing particularly new in it for anyone who has paid close attention to the lyrics of the songs in question, but it’s well done and an entertaining read.  I like Weezer, but there’s definitely an undercurrent of very unpleasant attitudes toward women running through their whole body of work that doesn’t necessarily undermine it aesthetically but does make identifying with it on any deeper level problematic.
