Weezer’s “I Want You To” Is Blowing Up Alternative Radio

It’s really hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since Weezer first burst onto the scene with their modern rock classic “Undone – The Sweater Song.” I absolutely love this band, and tracks like “Hash Pipe,” “Buddy Holly,” and “Island In The Sun” rank among my all-time favorites.
Their 7th studio album, Raditude, is due October 27th and its first single “I Want You To” is already blowing up at alternative radio. Does this song have what it takes to become a mainstream smash, the way that “Beverly Hills” did? I’d say it’s got a pretty good shot. What do you think?
