Weezer on Dave

I know I said I wasn't gonna watch Letterman anymore, but tuned in a few times the week or two after his scandal broke for special guests and to watch the car crash. Lotsa awkward handshakes with women guests. I noticed Tom Hanks would appear and Weezer was gonna play so DVRed their appearance last Thursday. I fast-forwarded through Dave's monologue and Top Ten, skipping half the show. Hanks was funny, charming as always. Then Weezer rocked the joint with this appearance, Schaeffer's band joining in for the cherry on top. I like most of the new album, Raditude (not RaTitude as Dave repeatedly pronounced it) and this song from it, but this live version is magical. See another of their great vids, Pork and Beans, written about on this blog previously. Update: Their appearance the next night on Dave, another beaut, I'm Your Daddy, performed in Weezer Snuggies :
