Several years ago, a bummed-out Rivers Cuomo penned the song “My Day Is Coming” after the USA lost the World Cup. It never made it to a Weezer album, but was released on Alone II, his second official collection of demos in 2008.


Fast forward to 2010, more people in the States are suddenly getting excited about soccer/football, and Cuomo’s band seizes the chance. The new song “Represent” is the unofficial theme song for America’s team.


Is it a worthy sequel to “My Day Is Coming”? Go to Weezer’s official site to hear for yourself. Word of caution: if you think that 21st century Weezer has done nothing but suck eggs, this song will just be more fodder for your argument.
