Weezer Hint at Next Tour's Stops in YouTube Montage

August 4, 2008 1:14 PM ET

Weezer, proud purveyors of the viral hit of the year, have taken to YouTube again to give clues as to what cities their upcoming tour might hit. Using The Red Album second single "Troublemaker" as its soundtrack, the video dubbed "21" flashes photos of places and people in rapid-fire order. From what we can identify (with a hat tip to the Weezer Website's commenters), the video opens with a shot of Harvard University (Cuomo's alma mater) and then rifles off scenic shots of New York City, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, etc. Weezer also has some fun with the word association, hinting that a photo of John Denver equals Denver, Colorado, and featuring the newest Dodgers acquisition Manny Ramirez as a nod to Los Angeles. The panda bear likely stands for San Diego and its famed zoo, and the guy from Dallas obviously means Dallas. Check out the video above to see if you can decipher all the stops.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
