On this past weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Matt Damon took to the stage where he ended up tackling the Great Weezer Debate: is Weezer still a good band?
In the skit, Damon and Jones find themselves in a rapidly escalating fight as they argue over whether songs like “Beverly Hills” or “Pork and Beans” were better. Jones found it perplexing that Damon thought the band was doing some great new work right now, as she asserts that “real Weezer fans know they haven’t had a good album since Pinkerton in ’96.
