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.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
