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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
