Weezer Names New Album “Instantly Dated Pop Culture Reference”

My apologies for the plethora of Lost news these past few days; while I’ll argue the validity of posting all the bits of the epilogue (mainly so folks don’t have to buy a full DVD set to watch it), this… this is just unnecessary. This being Weezer’s new album, which will be named “Hurley” and have this for a cover:

?We all know I loves me so Lost, but even I groaned at this. I mean, Lost is over. It’s been off the air for months, and it’ll have been off the air even longer whenever this album gets put out. Maybe people will still think “Hurley” is somewhat funny for the rest of 2010, but 2011? It’ll just be eye-rollingly annoying. By 2015 it’ll just be a picture of a happy fat dude. (Via The AV Club)
