Dorky Weezer Cover Is Legit

(MTV) You know the supposed cover for Weezer's upcoming Red album that hit the Net late Monday? The one that features the band sporting looks that blogs have described as "The New Village People: The Bartender, the Professor, the Cowboy and the Biker" (Pitch[d]ork) and "the four dudes ... [hoping] to spread the worst aspects of Williamsburg's nightlife ... to the Best Buy masses" (Idolator)?

Well, despite those glowing reviews and the creeping suspicion by many Weezer fans that the cover is some sort of elaborate hoax we can confirm that, yes, that is the actual cover of the band's third self-titled album, nicknamed Red, which will hit stores on June 24. But no, we're not sure what the meaning behind Rivers' "suburban cowboy" look is, either.

"Yes, that's absolutely the cover," Jim Merlis, the band's publicist, told MTV News. "It's what they chose. They looked at a bunch of mockups, and that's the one they decided to go with. It's not a joke." - But the plot thickens
