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.

“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.
