Citations![edit]

Could someone provide a citation for this paragraph:

"Rivers Cuomo is known for wearing thick-rimmed glasses, as did Buddy Holly. Weezer is often considered to be pioneers of fashion in the Emo subculture, as one of its standards is the wearing of square glasses like Cuomo's. Ironically, Cuomo was not wearing his signature glasses in the video for the song. Weezer also inspired a small flourish of 'geek chic' fashion, making it popular to wear articles of clothing usually associated with geekdom, such as sweater vests."

Last I checked, Weezer was definitely not an emo band. Even if square glasses are part of the emo style, where is the proof that they were inspired by Rivers? Sounds kind of fishy to me; someone please cite this! --Thebends 22:04, 20 March 2006 (UTC)


I agree. This does not seem entirely true. - sidewinder


I deleted a story about Weezer getting their name from Buddy Holly's putative last words -- that the Big Bopper had a cold and was thus a "gosh darn weezer." Googling that phrase turns up no other result besides this page. There were two citations -- one was a dead link, the other was Buddy Holly's death certificate (which said nothing about his last words).

Traces of Rapcore?[edit]

I just listened to this song and found something slightly interesting - In the section between the second chorus and solo, at approximately 1:45 until 2:00 (Bang! Bang! Knock on the door Another big bang and you're down on the floor, Oh no! What do we do? Don't look now but I lost my shoe, I can't run and I can't kick, What's a matter babe are you feelin' sick? What's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you?, What's a matter babe, are you feelin' blue?), I found Rivers Cuomo singing these listed vocals in a rap-like style. Because of this, do you think we should add Rapcore to the genre of the song? A Powerful Weakness (talk) 13:50, 2 January 2008 (UTC)A Powerful Weakness

This is a power pop song, with no hardcore punk/hip-hop influence whatsoever. He only rhymes during that part for a few lines. RadiumMetal (talk) 02:15, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Power Pop?[edit]

Do ya really think Buddy Holly is a power-pop song? I would say it's an alternative rock song... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Juancho991 (talkcontribs) 01:19, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Alternate cover art[edit]

Can someone please put this file (Buddy holly alt single cover.jpg) into the main infobox like the alternative art for Conspiracy Of One is in it's article, because I've tried but I can't get it to work when I try it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Heater123 (talkcontribs) 00:25, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Microsoft Windows 95[edit]

Wasn't the video of the song included in Microsoft's Windows 95 in order to demonstrate its multimedia features? Might have been the european version only. It's the most exciting thing about Windows 95 that I can remember nowadays. :) Here's a video confirming that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERqsrkwJnJs

Pop punk[edit]

I found a citation for pop punk. I will add it and hopefully people will be okay with that.
