Weezer Break Records With New "Troublemaker" Video

October 7, 2008 9:02 AM ET

Having already found viral success with their "Pork and Beans" video, Weezer is taking on the Guinness Book of World Records in the video for "Troublemaker." In fact, a Guinness official was on hand during the day-long shoot in a Los Angeles parking lot to witness the band and a throng of fans break such storied records like Largest Game of Dodgeball (two teams of 50 people), Most People in a Custard Pie Fight (120 pie throwers) and Largest Air Guitar Ensemble (223 thrashers). Additionally, drummer Pat Wilson played drums on the World's Smallest Drum Kit and the fans broke the record for Longest Guitar Hero: World Tour Marathon with a grueling 10 hour, 12 minute and 54 second session. Check out the full "Troublemaker" clip here.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
